Thanks to Killer Bud who delves deeply into the inner workings of the legal system, especially with regard to marijuana cases, and how those invested in criminalization of peaceful activities game the system to try and eliminate fully informed jurors.

Why Do Prosecutors Try To “Weed Out” Potential Jurors Aware Of Jury Nullification?

I believe the reason why prosecutors don’t want a juror to know about jury nullification are because they know that if people were to be aware of this that they would lose. The big bad tiger called government does not like losing. They will intentionally screen out potential jurors who they think will impose jury nullification, or are aware of it. If you contest a cannabis charge, they feel impelled to stack the deck against you to use the jurors to support their weak law.

When it comes down to it, if that’s what they have to do to win, then we are truly winning. More and more folks need to be educated about jury nullification to the point where prosecutors will have no choice but to accept them on jury pools..

In the meantime if you’re selected for jury duty and you support cannabis legalization , Do your duty, be professional, and keep your mouth shut until it is time to deliberate. You don’t have to explain to the other jurors why you think a person is not guilty. You just have to say to yourself “The law is wrong, not them”
