The sponsor of the Fairness in Cocaine Sentencing act is Rep. Bobby Scott(D-VA-3) and he is this week's Backbencher of the Week. There is still a long a lot work that needs to be done to bring sanity to our system of dealing with illegal drugs. However, the work of Rep. Scott is an important step towards bringing a sense of fairness to how the justice system deals with narcotics. Congratulations to Rep. Bobby Scott for bringing some fairness to our justice system and for being Backbencher of the Week.
