Why is the President commuting sentences of cocaine traffickers?

Carmel Bretous – Miami, FL
Offense: Conspiracy to import at least five kilograms of cocaine; importation of five kilograms of cocaine; conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute five kilograms of cocaine; possession with intent to distribute five kilograms of cocaine; Southern District of Florida
Sentence: 235 months’ imprisonment; five years’ supervised release (November 6, 2001)
Commutation Grant: Prison sentence commuted to expire on July 28, 2016

Also commuted the sentence of a guy caught smuggling 55lbs of Coke into the country

This is on top of the crack dealers that were pardoned in December.

I thought it was going to be people unjustly imprisoned for a little bit of weed
