Default Pardon on a drug offense in NY state

Is it possible to get a pardon on a drug offense in NY state? 11 years old conviction
Is there realistically any chance?
Or is that a waste of time trying, if even possible?

I have a marijuana charge and conviction involving supposedly large amounts.

Default Re: Pardon on a drug offense in NY state

I wish to inform you that the Governor of New York has the power to grant clemency in the form of reprieves, commutations, and pardons. A pardon provides unique relief for individuals who have completed their sentences but remain disadvantaged by their criminal history. The Executive Clemency Bureau is a unit within the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision that assists the Governor’s Office with clemency applications. The Executive Clemency Bureau receives applications and begins a review process, which includes compiling past criminal and/or correctional facility records. The Bureau then sends completed applications to the Governor’s Office for review. As an alternative to clemency, consider getting your record/conviction sealed. If you have no more than two misdemeanor convictions or one felony and one misdemeanor conviction, you may be eligible to have those convictions sealed after a 10-year waiting period. Additionally, some drug-related felony and misdemeanor convictions can be conditionally sealed if you have completed a drug treatment program. You may contact an attorney and seek guidance.

Write a letter to the Governor and ask for a pardon. Tell him what a good boy you've been since you were a drug dealer. Won't cost you anything but a 50 cent stamp.
