WASHINGTON (WKOW) -- The Supreme Court will hear arguments Tuesday on a major case involving prison sentences for drug possessions.
Justices will consider whether the "Fair Sentencing Act" should apply to people sentenced for drug crimes before the law was passed.
The law has eased the punishments for crimes involving crack cocaine. Before the law was passed, there were harsher punishments.
Attorneys for the U.S. government will argue the law only applies to people convicted after the Fair Sentencing Act passed.
