Jury Nullification Activist Jailed 145 Days for Distributing Info

We noted that Schmidter was not guilty of any actual law, but rather rules written by the acting judge. These rules that Schmidter is in violation of are for demonstrating outside of a “free speech zone” determined by Judge Perry.

Furthermore, the very rule he was found to be in violation of has been overturned.

Obama drug czar: We will go after marijuana distributors in Wash. and Colo.

Many soon learned his real intentions when the DEA raided four times as many marijuana dispensaries as Bush, in half the time.

Rangel and McCAin support slavery apparently and they have the gall to call it “volunteerism”.
