New Jersey better be ready for a fight because legendary defense lawyer William Buckman has just slapped Appeal papers on the state’s supreme court on behalf of John Ray Wilson.
This all started back when, Mr. Wilson, a multiple sclerosis patient was busted by police for growing marijuana plants in his home. He then received a 5 year prison sentence for second degree manufacturing even though he explained to the police that his plants were for his own personal use.
The courts threw out his plea because though NJ now has a medical marijuana law, there is no accommodation for patients to grow cannabis for personal use. Bill Buckman, who is no friend to the state habit of abusing their power over citizens plainly states what many in New Jersey already feel.
“New Jersey already has some of the most draconian laws in the nation with respect to marijuana, costing taxpayers outrageous sums to incarcerate nonviolent, otherwise responsible individuals– as well as in this case — the sick and infirm.”
Cases like these could be avoided if we would just decriminalize marijuna or either make it more easily accessibly to the sick that need it.
I would like to know how much money is being spent to try this case? How much does it cost to house this inmate for the next five years and how much money would the state make if they would just sell him his marijuana?
Revenue and shaving off mindless budget spending to save money should be state’s purpose when it comes to weed and not locking up people who are already prisoners of their medical condition.
Maybe a distasteful public image will move along public perception but I’m hanging my head right now because NJ is very lame.
Until next time.
