No convictions in big marijuana bust in ND
#1 Feb 4, 2012
Jury Nullification is a constitutional doctrine that allows juries to acquit defendants who are technically guilty but do not deserve punishment.- All non-violent 'drug offenders' who are not selling to children - be they users, dealers or importers - clearly belong in this category.
If you sincerely believe that prohibition is a dangerous and counter-productive policy then you must stop helping to enforce it. When it comes to acquittals, you, the juror, have the very last word!
* It only takes one juror to prevent a guilty verdict.
* You are not lawfully required to disclose your voting intention before taking your seat on a jury.
* You are also not required to give a reason to the other jurors for your position when voting - just simply state you find the accused not guilty.
We must create what we can no longer afford to wait for - PLEASE VOTE TO ACQUIT!
