Russell Simmons has called out Governor Eliot Spitzer over his failure to keep campaign promises to change harsh drug laws that disproportionately effects urban communities. This has long been a controversial issue due to the fact that powder cocaine  is prosecuted far less severely than smokable crack cocaine. The Gov has responded back to Russell but has not re-committed himself to going forward with changing the laws. NY1
