NJ Weedman gets his medicine by mail (Cannabis delivery)

August 27th, 2013 | By Pirate

I have been following NJ Weedman lately again.  It has been a few months since I have paid much attention to anything but healing from my accident.  But I have watched NJ Weedman as he has been getting treatments for his bone cancer in California, while living in New Jersey.   We had contacted Ed Forcion (AKA NJ WEEDMAN) in June when we were on our way to our new home on the east coast and we wanted to do an interview with him.   Ed agreed, and we told Ed we would pay him for his time.
When we got to Ohio, we started see how low our funds were, and how far we were from Maine.  So we told Ed we would have to reschedule.   New Jersey would have taken us several hundred miles out of our route.

Tonight I was able to send Ed $20, to try to keep my promise.  I figure it may come in handy during a rainy day when Ed is budless.  I sure wish I could send more.  I know Ed is overwhelmed right now with medical treatments, court cases, and activism.  As Ed often says “Activism doesn’t pay” and I know that all too well.   It was nice to be able to support a good activist and someone who has been very effective in promoting and using Jury Nullification.  Good work Ed!

Tonight Ed posted a video about how he had sent his medicine to himself from California to New Jersey and he displayed a video with all of his ganja treats..   This is revolutionary!   People in so-called “Dry states” can do this too, and there are many ways to do it.

First this is Ed’s documentation of this process:

Now here is the nitty gritty of how this works for other people.

I have learned about several websites on the “Darknet” that you can purchase and have different illicit items shipped to you.

It is neither illegal to visit these sites, nor is it illegal to post about them.  But the legality of the items and the process in which the items are shipped is a different story.   Before I give any links to these sites or references to these sites, let me make it clear.

1.  You do no know who you are ordering from.  Be very mindful of that.

2.  You don’t know what you will receive in the mail or who will follow your package

3.  You need to be VERY careful of how you browse these sites and how you relay information over the internet.
With this in mind.   I am neither responsible for your orders, or your actions.  You take full responsibility!

However if you are a cancer patient and you need cannabis for medicine, I have no moral conflict with you ordering cannabis online to help treat your symptoms or in fact to even CURE your ailments with cannabis.   I lost my father and my grandmother to cancer, as well as countless friends and loved ones.

First is Silk Road Marketplace, which is one of the oldest sites for ordering medicine over the “Darknet”.

They accept bitcoin as payment and they offer both sellers accounts and buyers account.   You can learn more at Wikipedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silk_Road_%28marketplace%29

Forbes reports that Silk Road makes 22 million dollars in sales per year.

http://www.forbes.com/sites/andygreenberg/2012/08/06/black-market-drug-site-silk-road-booming-22-million-in-annual-mostly-illegal-sales/

Then there is a few smaller sites.  One that I have heard of is “Black Market Reloaded”, and I do not know much about it.  You will have to do your own research.

Another one that has made some recent waves over the last few months, and has gotten a lot of press is “Atlantis”.   Which is also an .onion website, and offers very similar services to Silk Road.  They are probably most well known as Silk Road’s biggest competitor.

Learn more about them at this link:

http://www.businessinsider.com/atlantis-drug-marketplace-2013-6

Now down to the security issue.   As NJ Weedman says, he does not have items delivered to his own house.  That would just be stupid.   So finding a drop location is going to be one of the most difficult problems with getting meds by mail.

It takes the TOR Network to even gain access to these sites.  The TOR Project is used by various private individuals, organizations and governments to provide concealed/anonymous internet browsing.   Learn more at their website;

http://torproject.org/

But many people have still been traced.  Recently several web hosting sites, and mail hosting sites were targeted by authorities and their owners were found and arrested.

Read this:  http://yro.slashdot.org/story/13/08/04/2054208/half-of-tor-sites-compromised-including-tormail

Many of these sites had illegal child porn or other related services on them, and it good that those people were blocked from injuring children.   However many legitimate services that activists, journalist and others rely on were also taken down at the same time, since it was a central hosting company that was providing service to these sites.

So I recommend to people to do many things to protect themselves.  On top of using the TOR Project, I recommend looking into an anonymous VPN service.  See more at this link;

http://torrentfreak.com/vpn-services-that-take-your-anonymity-seriously-2013-edition-130302/

It is also well known that using Windows in any sense will leave you vulnerable to attacks and exposing sensitive data.  So I recommend using linux, as well as a USB live linux OS like Tails.   Even if your computer is loaded with only one operating system, and that OS is a Windows version.  You can still bypass using windows, and boot in to a USB Operating system like Tails, which is designed to provide anonymity.

And there are many others to choose from.

You may also want to encrypt your data.  TrueCrypt is known for being a free an effective way to encrypt your data.

See more here:  http://www.truecrypt.org/

That is the basics, and there is a lot more to it than that.   So do your own research.  DO NOT TRUST WHAT I HAVE GIVEN YOUR HERE.  There are always changing circumstances that may leave you vulnerable.   So rely on your own research and wisdom.

NJWeedman on Jury Nullification

April 21st, 2011 | By Pirate

I am glad to hear so much about this.  As of recently two people that I highly respect, Barry Cooper of Kopbusters, and NJWeedman (Edward Forcion) are talking about – jury nullification -.

Jury nullification occurs in a trial when a jury reaches a verdict contrary to the weight of the evidence and contrary to the letter of the law (an official rule, and especially a legislative enactment). A jury exercising its power of nullification need not disagree with the judge’s instructions themselves—which concern what the law is—but may rule contrary to the instruction in light of the actual evidence admitted in the case.

A jury verdict contrary to the letter of the law pertains only to the particular case before it; however, if a pattern of identical verdicts develops in response to repeated attempts to prosecute a statutory offense, it can have the de facto effect of invalidating the statute. A pattern of jury nullification may indicate public opposition to an unwanted legislative enactment.

Heres the thing about MMJ in WA. We have of the most progressive MMJ laws and culture in the country. We are doing fine with exception to the letter from the DOJ about dispensaries. But I think now that these dispensaries have a great clientele lined up, and contact info for their patients. They could call each patient and tell them “We offer cannabis delivery” and take care of patients like that.
Sure it wouldn’t be as economical, but they would also be saving the overhead of the commercial space and utilities, etc..
Our MMJ laws are strong, and though the police get tricky and the prosecutors use their experience to sway the jury the wrong way from time to time, over all Washington has some great protection (comparatively) for patients.

From the purpose and intent of 69.51a (RCW)
http://apps.leg.wa.gov/rcw/default.aspx?cite=69.51A

The people of Washington state find that some patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses, under their health care professional’s care, may benefit from the medical use of marijuana. Some of the illnesses for which marijuana appears to be beneficial include chemotherapy-related nausea and vomiting in cancer patients; AIDS wasting syndrome; severe muscle spasms associated with multiple sclerosis and other spasticity disorders; epilepsy; acute or chronic glaucoma; and some forms of intractable pain.

The people find that humanitarian compassion necessitates that the decision to authorize the medical use of marijuana by patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses is a personal, individual decision, based upon their health care professional’s professional medical judgment and discretion.

Therefore, the people of the state of Washington intend that:

Qualifying patients with terminal or debilitating illnesses who, in the judgment of their health care professionals, may benefit from the medical use of marijuana, shall not be found guilty of a crime under state law for their possession and limited use of marijuana;

Persons who act as designated providers to such patients shall also not be found guilty of a crime under state law for assisting with the medical use of marijuana; and

Health care professionals also be excepted from liability and prosecution for the authorization of marijuana use to qualifying patients for whom, in the health care professional’s professional judgment, medical marijuana may prove beneficial.
——

In the purpose and intent of our current laws, patients should not be arrested or charged, neither should doctors, and providers.
This is something that most lawyers can work with rather well, even in cases of 133 plants in a very conservative county in WA. 

What we need now is to see hemp spread from sea to sea. Rebuild our infrastructure with hemp (fuel, food, medicine, etc), and let all of the pot convicts out of prison.
Everyone can get social pot, or medical pot or whatever, now we need to employ hemp in our society to balance the environmental toxicity, and to balance the scale of wealth in this country. Give it back to we the people.

I recommend that we continue to employ people’s initiatives, both locally and nationally.  If we don’t change this law within our community, then the feds will mess it all up, or give it to Pfizer.

Jury Nullification or Mutiny?

December 23rd, 2010 | By Pirate

I have heard a lot about this from former drug enforcement officer Barry Cooper, it’s called jury nullification. 
This is proof that it works!  If the people of the jury refuse to pass judgment, deal sealed.  Prohibition is as much as over at that point.
The courts won’t continue to waste money on trials that do not end up in a conviction and instead only waste money.




A marijuana mutiny? According to a prosecutor in Missoula County, Mont., potential jurors made it clear they wouldn’t convict anyone for possessing a few buds of pot. District Judge Dusty Deschamps found it impossible to seat a jury, and decided to work out a plea bargain for the man in question, Touray Cornell, instead.
