Do Americans live in a barbaric nation?

The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday declined to hear an appeal from convicted Mississippi marijuana dealer Lorenzo Tarver.

Tarver was sentenced in 2006 in Leflore County, Mississippi, to 60 years for possession of more than 81 pounds of marijuana with intent to distribute, according to AP.
The Mississippi Court of Appeals upheld his conviction in 2009.
