98 percent of people arrested in "Drug-Free School Zones" weren’t selling drugs to children.

Oh, well then, that certainly makes it OK. Why didn't they just say so?

"Mitchell Lawrence received the two-year jail sentence because he was within 1,000 feet of a school"

So the headline is nothing other than a lie of omission.

He was not given 2 years for one joint, but for the applicable conditions of the conviction.

"Drug-Free School Zones"

I wonder if the sale was made within sight of a sign stating the above. The phrase "within 1000 feet" is a bit vague, does not tell me if he was 999 feet away or standing outside the school doors. Sorry, do the crime do the time. I have no problem at all with drug free zone laws.
