<<Institutionalized Racism is criminal bill enacted by Clinton in 1994.>>


The United States was facing a rapidly developing epidemic of crack cocaine use at the time, and severe penalties truncated that epidemic.

That saved a lot of lives, and helped end the babies born already addicted to crack cocaine.


In short ----the criminal penalties were both appropriate and effective.
