All over the world cities and towns will be participating in the
Millennium Marijuana March. I'm organizing a small protest/picnic
(12 noon) in Camden's Wiggins Park at (3 pm) we will travel across the
Ben Franklin Bridge to Philadelphia's 
liberty square. At about 420 PM. 
I will smoke a joint in front of the Liberty Bell.
Because Liberty Bell square park is a Federal site. 
The charges that will result will be federal.

The Government has no authority to regulate my body.

the world. The Liberty Bell as a background for my protest.

SEPT 2000
JURY NULLIFICATION TRIAL part #1
I was ordered not to talk about Jury Nullification during my trial. 
FUCK that order, unless my right to free speech is suspended
just because I'm in a so-called court of law, I'm talking JN

incarcerated after this. I can't as usual post what I'm going to

  CIVIL DIS-OBEDIENCE ACTS

 

                                                               1999

Beginning this March-1999, I plan to start randomly arriving at a different local municipal court 1/2 hour before they start "Robbing" citizens. I will not cause any disruptions, I will not be trying to get arrested. I will just be handing out, (www.fija.org), Fully Informed Jury Nullification literature. To protest the NJ municipal courts systems practice of denying it's citizens a jury trial-in violation of the 5th, 6th, and 7th amendments. As well as Legalize Marijuana leaflets with my number and web address (www.njweedman.com) on them. I know I have the right to do this, and I know I'm supposed to be protected by the first amendment. Although last year I had one incident (May 19th) where NJ State Police Officer Patrick Thornton, who works out of the Bellmarw, NJ (08033) tried to throw me off the steps (assault) of the Gloucester Township Municipal courthouse steps because he didn't like the LEGAL information I was distributing. 

"Pro Marijuana Legalization leaflets". The state police and the Gloucester township police department has covered up this attack by one of it's own, even though there where 6 witness's who where willing to testify about what they saw. I don't expect anything like that to happen again. 

See NJ State Police.

    Jury pool pollution, I want to pollute them with knowledge!
Thereby informing/enlightening them, The state wants ill-informed jurors. 

      Simultaneously, I will also begin distributing (www.fija.org) Fully Informed Jury Association literature outside the Camden County Hall of Justice (a lot of injustice is done here), at 5th and Mickle Bvd's in Camden, NJ, where superior court is located. I want to do this on monday's and tuesday's that correspond with jury pool selection days. I will be located on the public sidewalks with a sign over my chest/back that will read "JURY DUTY ?",  each person (potential juror) who mistakenly thinks I'm giving out directions for court will be handed information that all potential jurors should know. Like "a juror has the right to judge the law as well as evidence" , "A juror cannot be punished for acquitting a defendant for violating a law that the juror's feels is a unjust law" and leaflets explaining jury veto power". I hope the week that my jury is chosen individuals who agree will help distribute outside courthouse alongside of me. 

EVENTS LOCAL RALLIES, JOIN US!
JOHN HEINZ POT PRESERVE 420 event 

APRIL 20th @ 420pm - 1999
      At the John Heinz Wildlife Preserve, just off interstate 95's (exit 9) prospect park exit,  south of the Philadelphia International Airport many of the area's freedom fighters and supporting citizens will be holding the 1st Annual Citizens Freedom 420 rally. Band together as one in our quest! The government has no right to decide or dictate how we, as FREE CITIZENS, live our lives. For years we've been under the control of a small group of senile old men, who have no interest, in their minds, for us, but only for themselves. We as a people must decide for ourselves what is right for each of us. In order to do this we must stand INDIVIDUALLY AS ONE!---Stand up against the democratic/republican party's who have stolen our freedoms, and demand that they return them. 

More info available in the future. 

Wiggins Park, Camden NJ-next to E/center
COMING-OUT -POT PICNIC 
April 24Th 2pm-(4:20 pm-7:00 pm)

          Join the "Legalize Marijuana Party's" second annual coming out POT- PICNIC.  Last year, at the inaugural event it rained all morning and it was held on a weekday.( so we could march on Hall of Justice, which we did!) Several local bands appeared and it planted the seeds for this years event to become a annual event. Only about 200 people attended last years event (mainly because of the weather). This years event will be a much more informal event that last years. This year due to my legal case's we don't have the $2000.00 for insurance, and expense's of last year. So we have decided for the moment not to apply for a permit, have no bands, and just call it a picnic and invite everyone who interested to come hang-out at the park. (no alcohol). Peaceful assembly is lawful. At about 420 everyday I use my medicine, this day will be no different. Bring yourself, bring your friends, bring food and most importantly of all bring "God's Medicine". 

Literature and info will be exchanged. If you've got a BULLHORN PLEASE BRING IT! 
If we get a influx of cash -we will apply for a permit, and invite local bands so stay tuned. 

COME ON NOW! Get involved participate. "Peacefully" no-more arrest!

How you can help? 

     In anyway you think you can. Obviously money is what helps grassroots efforts the most but your physical help is just as valuable. One day passing out literature is immensely valuable. Help spread the message. Pass on the web address. - pay for newspaper/radio ads, share the weed, or write letters to all of the local papers, judges, politicians advocating and end to the so-called "War on Drugs". 

Just get involved! Help Re-legalize!
