Grants clemency to drug offenders

13 Jul, 2015

President Obama grants clemency to 46 men and women who have spent years and faced decades in prison for non-violent, drug offenses.

Their punishments didn’t fit the crime, and if they had been sentenced under today’s laws, almost all of them would have served their time. I believe…America is a nation of second chances. And I believe these folks deserve a second chance.
