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.

Highlights

April 1
Today 03/31/2015, prisoner Francis Darrell Hayden, who had been sentenced to life in prison for growing marijuana back in 2002. Is now scheduled to be release sometime this summer because, of a reprieve finally granted by President Obama which represented 21 other prisoners. In contrast, this took place after some constructive criticism from the "Advocates for greater clemency", who had argued that Obama should follow through on the underlying principles of the (2010 Fair Sentencing Act) that he himself signed".

    "Eight of the 22 inmates had been sentenced to life imprisonment and would have died behind bars", if not for this reprieve. Do you think Obama should use his executive authority to reform Governors pardon guidelines and restrictions state by state?

    "Totally agree', when we better prepare inmates to re-enter society, chances are they're less likely to become repeat offenders".
