Freedom Friday: Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion


This week’s Freedom Friday video features Ed “NJWeedman” Forchion who openly uses and advocates for the legalization of marijuana. In 2010, he was stopped in New Jersey and charged for possession of marijuana. Forchion will be driving cross-country from California to New Jersey in the weeks leading up to his trial. He plans to make it a 10-day trip stopping all across the country spreading the message of jury nullification.

Forchion intends to utilize jury nullification defenses in court and to openly question the law to jurors. He points out that one venue for major social change in this country is our courtrooms. Forchion believes that marijuana should be legal, and he believes at least 6 of his jurors will think so as well. His goal at trial is to convince one of them to say “NOT GUILTY”.
