President Obama today commuted the sentences of 46 federal drug offenders because their punishments didn't match their crimes. The move illustrates the president's desire to reform criminal justice, including a reduction of punishment for non-violent crimes.

Obama explains on his Facebook page.

UPDATE: Here's the list of the 46. None is identified as being from Arkansas.
