Posted at: 08/21/2013 1:18 PM
Attorney General Eric Holder came out with a new stance on the drug policy in the United States.
Holder directed federal prosecutors last Monday to change the way they file charges for some drug crimes, to reduce the number of convictions for offenses that carry inflexible, mandatory minimum sentences.
News10NBC and Dixon Schwabl Research asked viewers if they had heard about Attorney General Eric Holder's shift in the drug policy in the United States. Only 45 percent said they had heard of it. Most people, 48 percent, had not.
Do you find the shift in police favorable? Fifty-seven percent of people surveyed found it favorable, while 31 percent said they didn't agree with it.
