Please sign and share and pass along ��❤️
Ed Forchion a.k.a Njweedman is a long well known rastafarian marijuana activist in New Jersey. Ed is known all over the United States for his out spoken views on Marjiuana. He has had his own medical marijuana shop in California along side with his Rastafarian Temple next door before getting raided and forced to shut down even with a license. Ed returned to NJ where a few years later he opened a Restaurant “The Joint” and along side of course his Rasafarian temple a ”Liberty Bell Temple III” in Trenton, NJ in May 2015. For about 8 months everything was fine. At the beginning of January 2016 the police have been harassing The Joint and congregational members for being open after 11 pm. #NOCHICKENWINGSAFTER11PM
March of 2016 he filed a lawsuit against the police. In April the police retaliated by raiding his Temple based on the word of a rat. Njweedman outed the rat on Facebook and critized the states tactics of entrapment. Then the Mercer County miss construed that as witness tampering and on March 3rd, 2017 he was jailed and charged with 2 counts of witness tampering. A second degree and Third Degree. On March 7th Mercer county prosecutors detain Ed until trial based on false claim that He was a danger to the witness. (Lol yeah right black hippie peaceful dude) There is not one single piece of evidence of him being a threat to the witness. He actually states in a couple videos to do no harm to the witness or his family. He simply wants the witness to come to court and testify against the police entrapment.
In October of 2017 he went to trial and the jury of his peers found him Not Guilty of the most serve witness charge of second degree!! On the third degree the jury hung (11-1). Maliciously the prosecutor demands a new trial on the third degree leaving Ed stuck where he remains being wrongfully held for his freedom.
