NJWeedman: I tried to send the Gov a fatty


New Jersey’s most determined advocate of marijuana, who actually changed his named to, announced today that he’s about to be indicted for mailing pot to Gov. Chris Christie.

Weedman, whose real name in Ed Forchion, made the disclosure two days before he’s supposed to go on trial in Burlington County on marijuana distribution charges.

“My jaw is dropping,” a spokesman for the governor said after the long pause that followed word from the reoprter on what Forchion admitted in a telephone call to The Trentonian.

Forchion, who hails from Pemberton Township, also has long criticized the court for using his drug cases to block his access to his children. He said earlier today that he mailed Christie medicinal marijuana from California, where he had landed the seemingly perfect job for him, manager of a pot clinic.

But last time Forchion came east he allegedly was found carrying a large load of dope and got busted. He often represents himself and argues for “jury nullification,” in which the jury tosses a case as bad law.

That’s a rarity, of course, but the last time Forchion tried the tactic, a case in which he ultimately took a plea deal, he was allowed to poll the jurors and found four of them would have let him free as an innocent man because they believed the marijuana laws were unjust.

That total would have won Forchion a mistrial and it would have been up to the prosecutor as to whether or not they would try him again. It would take a unanimous decision by all 12 jurors for nullification, which, if achieved, could set a precedent for other similar cases to be thrown out.

It's been bad year for awesome dude Edward Forchion. Not only did his request to change his name to "" get denied (thanks, Obama), but the packages of weed he sends to NJ Governor Chris Christie aren't getting through!

Forchion told the Philadelphia Inquirer's Matt Katz that he mails a gram of weed a month to Christie plus another 14 public officials, including the state attorney general. It sounds like a winning gesture:

The dope, sent from Weedman's home in California, comes with a letter that misspells Christie's name and misstates Christie's former law enforcement job, which was U.S. Attorney. Weedman calls Christie a "fat hypocrite."

Unfortunately, Christie hasn't seen a single bud. (Or so his spokesman claims.) Too bad! Forchion could use some powerful friends for his upcoming trial over a pot bust last year—not that he doesn't have an awesome strategy:

As for the pending trial, Forchion is representing himself, as he has in the past, and he hopes to pick pothead jurors using his "pot-dar."

Never change,

It's really the land of the slave when  government makes up mala-prohibita laws, that have no Constitutional basis,
and clearly violate God given Inalienable rights. 

The founding fathers grew hemp and smoked pot. Now the psychopaths in government lock people in cages for the same peaceful activity.
