-FREEDOM FRIDAY: Steve Marlowe’s Case Dismissed!


SteveMarloweGood news this week from a friend of freedom, Steve Marlowe. You may recall from a Freedom Friday video last December that a North Carolina man arrested in Florida for simple marijuana possession was headed to court. Marlowe uses marijuana medicinally and was arrested for possessing a mere 19 grams. He refused a plea deal and opted instead to plead his case before a jury, risking a potential sentence of a year in jail and a $1000 fine. Five months and three court dates later, Marlowe’s case has been dismissed! Marlowe, who asked through his YouTube channel for jurors to nullify the law, believes the government was afraid to take the case before a jury and decided it did not want the hassle. He encourages everyone to stand up and be counted when they can by stating that they are Not Guilty. Congratulations to Steve for his big victory!
