-Jury Nullification Victor NJ Weedman Requests Clemency for Imprisonment Due to Administrative Shenanigans


Cannabis_sativa_(Köhler)Ed “NJ Weedman” Forchion has issued a Request for Medical Clemency today requesting that New Jersey governor Chris Christie grant clemency for a Stay of Sentence, pending his appeal of Judge Delaney’s court rulings regarding his conviction on a victimless offense of marijuana possession, which he uses to treat very painful bone cancer tumors. As we’ve previously reported, Forchion successfully pursued a jury nullification strategy and obtained an outright acquittal on a more serious charge of possession of marijuana with intent to distribute, but was convicted on a charge of simple possession. Click through the link below for Ed’s comments on how he believes administrative shenanigans were employed to put him in jail for a charge that would ordinarily not be punished with imprisonment.

In addition to his use of medical marijuana to treat his condition, Forchion is taking part in an experimental treatment which requires him to be in California periodically for medical procedures. His imprisonment has interfered with this life-preserving therapy, by resulting in major expenses to fly back and forth to California, impeding his ability to raise the funds necessary to do so, and even interfering with him obtaining a required MRI/Bone scan as part of his treatment.

An irreplaceable human life is at stake here, and real harm is being done to this man in retribution for him not harming anyone. Please call Governor Chris Christie’s office at 609-292-6000 to support Ed’s request for a stay of sentence pending his appeal in this case, emphasizing that real medical harm is being done to a peaceful person, which is contrary to the spirit of COMPASSION that New Jersey’s Compassionate Use Act of 2010 was meant to bring to the legal system in the cases of medical marijuana patients.

Ed “NJ Weedman” Forchion’s Request to Governor Christie for Medical Clemency

I ask you to grant me CLEMENCY not for the entire case but for a “STAY of SENTENCE pending the appeal” review by the New Jersey Court system of Judge Delaney’s court rulings. If not – not only will I not be able to retrieve my freedom back upon successful appeal. My HEALTH is absolutely being ruined by Judge Delaney’s illegally obtained GUILTY PLEA.
