American Scene: ‘NJWeedman’ convicted of pot possession
Question of the Day
MOUNT HOLLY — Jurors in New Jersey have delivered a mixed verdict at the trial of a marijuana activist who lives in California and goes by the name “NJWeedman.”
The panel in Mount Holly on Wednesday convicted Ed Forchion of possession of a pound of pot in the trunk of his car. However, they could not reach a verdict on whether he intended to distribute it.
The 47-year-old moved to Los Angeles several years ago to run a medical marijuana dispensary. He was arrested during a traffic stop in April 2010.
He could not use New Jersey’s medical marijuana law as a defense.
