NJ Weedman aims to get arrested again

Activist will sell marijuana to protest legalization bill

By Nikita Biryukov, March 13 2019 11:42 am

Ed “N.J. Weedman” Forchion said Wednesday that he plans to sell marijuana on March 21, days before Trenton lawmakers are aiming to vote on a marijuana legalization deal reached by Gov. Phil Murphy, Senate President Steve Sweeney and Assembly Speaker Craig Coughlin.

“This bill (2703) does nothing for those victimized by the current prohibition for providing marijuana to the state’s ½ a million potheads for decades because the state enforced a racist prohibition and now is swapping that out for racist legalization,” Forchion said in a statement. “This law NOW EXCLUDES US (US = minorities, current black-marketeers), all of those arrested for distribution or for having more than 50grams aren’t eligible to participate in this new Government industry.”

Forchion has previously been arrested for selling marijuana, though authorities declined to arrest Forchion last year when he was smoking and selling marijuana outside of the governor’s.

Forchion said that he intends to get arrested this time in order to mock Sweeney and State Sen. Nicholas Scutari, who is sponsoring the legalization bill.

State lawmakers are aiming to vote on a suite of marijuana legalization bills on March 25. At the moment, Democrats likely lack the votes to pass the legalization bill outright.

    1. Did you ever consider that the laws that incarcerate the greatest number of people (drug prohibition laws) make a mockery of free people and should never have existed in the first place?
