'Weedman' Allowed to Leave Jail Once a Month to Smoke Weed: Video
"The same judge who sentenced Ed Forchion to nine months in Burlington County Jail in New Jersey for marijuana possession also lets him fly to California for 10 days each month to smoke marijuana.
Forchion -- who tried to legally change his name to NJWeedman.com -- is a cancer patient legally cleared to receive medical marijuana in California."
This story perfectly illustrates the absurdity of our " War on Drugs", as usual the poor and minorities pay the price for our hypocrisy and moral cowardice.
Even though New Jersey has passed laws legalizing medicinal marijuana since Weedman was arrested and convicted, he still has to travel to California to receive his medicinal weed.
Anti-marijuana laws are anything but logical or compassionate; this poor cancer patient has to travel all the way from New Jersey to California to get his weed.
Weedman will be finished serving his sentence at the end of February. Let`s light one up for this crusader for Truth, Justice and the American Way!
