I contacted the author, this is sadly a work of fiction. I find it really lame that he presented it as true.

here is the email:

Dear smokin,

The story is fiction, but based on true facts about jury nullification and the war on drugs. Thanks. Joel

Very well said. It is no one elses job but your own to insure you know what you need to know. I think your rights are something you need to know. If you are going to serve on a jury, I think its your duty to research what you have to do.

To many people expect others to do everything for them.

Knowledge is power, and you could scream it over and over and over, but most of America still wont understand or care.

I agree completely.  Sadly, knowing about jury nullification (just for those of you who are not already aware) will do nothing for you if you are ever in the hot seat, as it is illegal for the defendant to request jury nullification.  But if enough people knew about jury nullification, drug charges are the perfect areas to apply it.  Imagine case after case involving drug related charges where the defendant is acquited do to jury nullification.  Then my friends, the U.S. Government would have no choice but to legalize this shit and stop wasting everyones time and law enforcement dollars on petty issues such as what people do on their down time to relax/have fun.:smirk:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jury_nullification

Wikipedia is usually on the ball.

Looks like the story is spot on, true or not.

"To do right is to know what you want. Now when you are dissatisfied with yourself it's because you are after something you don't really want. What objects are you proposing to yourself? Are they the objects you really value? If they are not, you are cheating yourself. I don't meant that if you chose to pursue the objects you most value, you will attain them; of course not. Your experience will tell you that. But success in getting after much labor what you really don't care for is the bitterest and most ridiculous failure." -George Santayana

Make drugs legal, or alcohol and tobacco illegal. Either way it's more fair.

I know this thread is old... but with more and more states decriminalizing marijuana, THIS HAS NEVER BEEN MORE IMPORTANT TO KNOW!  "Why are we going to send a man away for 5 years if states all over the nation are taking away all criminal penalties for simple possession."
