The Weedman

On August 4, Ed Forchion, a New Jersey cannabis activist known as “NJ Weedman”, who has been arrested several times on cannabis-related charges (see CC#27, Pot-parents lose their kids), lit a joint in front of the American Liberty Bell in Philadelphia. Forchion expected to be arrested again, but police watched casually while he puffed on his stogie and shouted through his bullhorn for an end to the drug war. Two dozen other protesters also gathered in support of Forchion. Afterward, Forchion and supporters marched to the local police station where hundreds were demonstrating for the release of drug war prisoners.
