EDWARD "njweedman" FORCHION
In 1994 when I began embracing RASTAFARI
I had no idea that I would one day have my child taken from me, my freedom,
my life, and the lives of my family threatened because of the
religion I freely was choosing. I have chosen RASTAFARI
an illegal religion in the
There is no such thing as freedom of religion any longer; it now is “Freedom of Religions decided upon by our states
Christian Lawmakers to be religions”. Religions, such as (
Although I began using marijuana long before I was formally introduced to RASTAFARI, once I found RASTAFARI- it
further convinced me that the marijuana laws were wrong, because marijuana is
good! Only now Jah tells me so. Does the first amendment protect me
like it protects Native Americans who use Peyote ,
(A cactus that produces natural LSD), or Christians who use alcohol. I
believe it does, and will soon ask a NEW JERSEY jury if they think it
RASTAFARI is an African based Religion, with strong roots to
In the RASTAFARIAN religion the herb (marijuana) or GANJA is considered a sacrament and most Rasta’s use daily, for spirituality, and medical use. “AS I DO!” The present Marijuana laws are absolutely unconstitutional, for it's failure's to make exceptions for religious or self medicating purpose's in this marijuana prohibition as was done with alcohol during the alcohol prohibition.
For those of you who don’t know it, during the Alcohol Prohibition, wine
was still legal for citizens who identified themselves as Christian
believers. I know this for when I was a child my parents took “us” (brother
and sisters) on a tour of the Renault Winery on rt. 30 in
Present marijuana laws now written by Christian law makers refuse to make similar exemptions for RASTAFARIANS and other religious groups, who use the herb (marijuana), instead of the grape, as a spiritual sacrament, or in the exercise of their religions faiths/beliefs. They further discriminate in that no exception is made to RASTA individuals who choose to medicate with natural herb's; of which marijuana is the greatest. Directly resulting in the imprisonment of US citizens for their Religions, as I may soon be. Or for taking our children, from us as Judge Bell has done to me. This is an example of religious preference, or persecution. A human rights violation.
Unless my Jury is informed of its (1) constitutionally permissible function of a jury, to nullify this law which clearly is unconstitutional and they then choose to do so, by rendering a verdict of not guilty. I may spend close to 30 years in a (US POW camp) prison essentially for having a religion that is illegal. For those of you who don’t know what Jury Nullification here it is briefly:
"Jury nullification of law," as it is sometimes called, is a traditional American right defended by the Founding Fathers. Those Patriots intended the jury to serve as one of the tests a law must pass before it assumes enough popular authority to be enforced. Thus the Constitution provides five separate tribunals with veto power “representatives, senate, executive, judges and the jury” that each enactment of law must pass before it gains the authority to punish those who choose to violate it. Thomas Jefferson said, "I consider trial by jury as the only anchor yet imagined by man, by whom a government can be held to the principles of its constitution."
"Hopefully I'll be allowed to at least
read the constitution to my juror's". I believe if my jury is fully
informed of its veto-power and my right to freely exercise my
religion I will be acquitted".
The unconstitutional marijuana laws are directly interfering with my constitutional guarantee of freedom of religion. And my "RIGHT TO REGULATE MY OWN BODY". The marijuana laws are wrong! Not I, “I say”. The marijuana laws are directly interfering with the “free exercise” of my chosen religion- "RASTAFARI"- this is an obscene violation of the Constitution's very first amendment. My marijuana use for religious reasons, is protected by the NJ Constitutions Article I, (3) and (4).
(3) - No person shall be deprived of the inestimable privilege of worshipping “Almighty God” in a manner agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience.
(4) - There shall be no establishment of one religious sect in preference to another;
The US Constitution, the pending (RLA) Religious Liberties Act and the
(RRA) Religious Restoration act of 1993, signed into law
"Hopefully I'll be allowed to at least read the constitution to my juror's they should be allowed to know the History of Jury Nullification".
Have any of you every heard of William Penn the Quaker, or Mr. Wood,
Do you think children that are now going to be forced feed the 10
commandments, or are being introduced to drugs and propaganda by DARE at
school will be able to accept that there are other religions with other
beliefs, practices and customs. When even our courts officers like Judge Bell
