Under the constitution, the President has the authority to grant pardon for federal offenses, including those adjudicated in the "United States District Courts", the "Superior Court of the District Of Columbia", and "Military Courts- Martial".
In contrast', the President cannot pardon a state criminal offense. Instead, applicants seeking clemency for a state criminal conviction require what is known as a "Governor's Pardon" from the governor of the state. Of which, in this case would be the Governor of Maryland.
Interesting enough', the rules governing applicant's with federal convictions states, "Applicant's must satisfy a minium waiting period of (5) year's before he/she becomes eligible to apply for a "Presidential Pardon" on a federal conviction".
On the other hand', the rules governing applicant's with Maryland state criminal offenses states, "Applicant's convicted of a "CDS" (Controlled Dangerous Substance) offense are required to wait a period of (20) year's before he/she becomes eligible to even apply for a "Governor's Pardon" for a first offense.
Nonetheless', I (______________) am petitioning to amply reduce and vindicate applicant's convicted of criminal law code (s5-602 Controlled Dangerous Substance) violations from the (20) year waiting period which also applies to first time offenders in becoming eligible for an "Governor's Pardon".
Moreover', I (_______________) believe (20) year's will further hender offenders convicted of criminal law code(s5-602 "Controlled Dangerous Substance") violations from seeking executive clemency and regaining their civil rights, as United States citizen's.
