Some call him the 21st century William Penn others say he should be in the Penn but on Oct 18th a New Jersey Jury said he was like William Penn – http://www.phillyburbs.com/news/crime/njweedman-found-not-guilty-in-pot-distribution-case/article_2d6d582d-0887-53f2-a7d5-c7c10bc8b958.html
“My life was saved by Jury Nullification and I want to give back to society by helping other marijuana defendants across the country. Enlightening the local public to a Constitutional tool for “WE THE PEOPLE” to win this war on drugs with legalization”!
NJWeedman is going on the offense, rigging up his weedmobil with cameras/audio and a plan to make a reality show out of his adventures this spring. On January 17th NJWeedman must appear one more time before the Burlington County Court, from there he plans on touring the country this spring on a “JURY NULLIFICATION victory TOUR“.
He wants to take his “WEEDMOBIL” on the road, visiting towns and cities across the country lending support and Jury Nullification enlightenment to targeted Juries and communities nationally. Getting airtime on local radio and TV. Hitting pro marijuana festivals such as the Michigan/Ann Arbor Hash-Bash, Seattle Hemp Fest, National 420 Rally in Washington DC and Boston Freedom Rally. All the while video recording everything around and in the weedmobil, the center of his travels. – http://vimeo.com/19910141
Most importantly NJweedman wants to roll into towns a few weeks before a marijuana defendants trial begins with the goal of using himself and the weedmobil to generate news stories in local newspapers talking about Jury Nullification – reaching this individuals potential jurors. NJweedman wants to distribute massive amounts of fija fliers ( www.fija.org ), and pass out leaflets explaining Jury Nullification all round the courthouse preceding trial. he did this in his own trial - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DsQo5WqkXJw
NJWeedman wants to re-pitch this idea to a major TV network again as a reality show. Defendants nation-wide wishing or seeking to use the NJWeedman defense and enlist his help would call and ask him and the weedmobil to come to their town – to make a big deal of the case and promote Jury Nullification “420″. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQquVy1wohQ

The impact of this project on America’s “WAR on DRUGS” as a whole could be enormous. If this project gets picked up by a network as a “reality series”, or real life documentary it could impact how thousands of marijuana defendants chose to defend themselves. The show would be about the travels of NJWeedman in his Weedmobil and the main goal would be to enlighten Americans to the concept of Jury Nullification as a defense to the tyrannical prosecutions of peaceful pot smokers. (victims of our nations war on drugs.
This is the type of press coverage I got when I did this for my own case and I believe I could use the WEEDMOBIL and myself as examples to locals on how to win marijuana cases with a jury. – http://www.trentonian.com/article/20120508/NEWS01/120509729/-1/NEWS/trentonian-tv-njweedman-goes-to-trial#full_story
