Earlier in 2014, the U.S. Sentencing Commission voted unanimously to amend base offense levels associated with the Drug Quantity Table in guideline section 2D1.1. Essentially, the amendment reduces the base offense levels for all drug types by two, while remaining consistent with the mandated five- and ten-year statutory minimums. The amendments would make parallel changes to the section 2D1.11 quantity tables, which apply to offenses involving chemical precursors of controlled substances.
