Obama Commutes 2 Marijuana Sentences And 44 Other Drug Offenders

President Obama commuted the sentences of 46 non-violent drug offenders on Monday, two of which were for marijuana. The president said the 46 prisoners had served sentences disproportionate to their crimes. “These men and women were not hardened criminals, but the overwhelming majority had been sentenced to at least 20 years,” he said. “I believe that at its heart, America is a nation of second chances. And I believe these folks deserve their second chance.” According to the Washington Post, Monday’s commutations mark the most in a single day since the administration of President Lyndon B. Johnson. Obama now has…

Obama Just Granted Clemency to a Pot Lifer. But Dozens More Remain Behind Bars.

On Monday, President Obama commuted the sentences of 46 nonviolent drug offenders held in federal prisons. It was the highest number of commutations granted in a single day since the days of Lyndon B. Johnson. But for the 35,000 federal inmates who have applied for relief, it was a drop in the bucket. And only one of the recipients of the recent commutations is a pot lifer: Francis Darrell Hayden, who was sentenced to life in prison in 2002 for cultivating a plant that more than half of the US population now believes should be legal. (He was growing a lot—more than 18,000 marijuana plants, obscured…

4 Prisoners Obama Should Consider Freeing As Part Of His Clemency Push

The New York Times reported over the weekend that President Obama is readying another wave of clemency grants for nonviolent drug offenders who have served disproportionately lengthy sentences in prison. The administration may commute the sentences of dozens of federal inmates over the next month. Despite renewed public scrutiny on mass incarceration, the Obama administration has beenunusually stingy in granting pardons and clemency to federal inmates. The administration touts the fact that Obama has commuted 43 sentences, more than the 11 commuted by George W. Bush and the 13 by Reagan. But he has granted just 64 pardons, compared to 189 prisoners pardoned by Bush…

President Obama Insults the Intelligence of America’s Youth By Dictating Marijuana Legalization Should Be Their Bottom Priority

Rather than listening to his young constituents, President Obama disregards their highest priority—ending the failed pot prohibition policy of the United States—and condescendingly substitutes his own narrow-minded vision for the future. To prepare for his much anticipated interview with President Obama, VICE’s Shane Smith solicited questions online in advance from readers. When he interviewed the president last week, Smith saved the most popular subject for the end:  “For young people, I’m sorry, but if you legalized marijuana, it would be the biggest part of your legacy.” Barack Obama, who admittedly smoked weed in his youth, had the audacity to declare,…

Obama Supports D.C. Cannabis with New Budget Proposal

President Obama’s budget proposal for 2016 contains a little beacon of hope for Washington, D.C. residents who are frustrated by Congress’ efforts to essentially block the District’s retail cannabis legalization by disallowing the use of federal funding to implement the program. On page 1,248 of his 1,392 page, $4 billion budget proposal for next year, there lies a small but mighty clause: SEC. 809. (a) None of the Federal funds contained in this Act may be used to enact or carry out any law, rule, or regulation to legalize or otherwise reduce penalties associated with the possession, use, or distribution of…
