FREEDOM FRIDAY: LIZ MCDUFFIE’S EPIPHANY

Share

Liz McDuffie, Director of the Medical Cannabis Caregivers training program in Pasadena, California discusses her epiphany about jury nullification after a heated argument with “The Human Solution” founder Joe Grumbine. Initially, Ms. McDuffie was not on board with Mr. Grumbine’s call for jury nullification advocacy, but changed her mind after her exchange with Mr. Grumbine. “I realized that I needed to be there and should be there and wasn’t there for [medical marijuana provider Aaron] Sandusky, on the basis that he was being tried with a law that is hideously unjust, and that I as a juror have the ability to save that man ten years in prison,” said Ms. McDuffie.
