New Jersey’s most determined advocate of marijuana, who actually changed his named to NJWeedman.com, 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

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.
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.
a rarity, of course, but the last time Forchion tried the tactic, a

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

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."
