Jury Finds NJ Weedman Not Guilty

NJ Weedman ate pot cookies as he explained his case to a jury on Thursday morning. Later in the day, that same jury unanimously found him not guilty of possession of one pound of pot with intent to distribute. Police picked up NJ Weedman on April Fool’s Day back in 2010 and found the pound of marijuana in the trunk of his car. Weedman maintains that the drugs were solely for his personal use. He uses the drug to suppress pain brought on by his deep bone tumors. NJ Weedman asked if he could have his pot back, but the judge said no. [The Trentonian]

    Of course if this column were entitled “What They’re Saying That I Actually Give A Rat’s Behind About”, it would be much shorter.

      The thing to remember is that any of these pundits can more or less say anything they want to with no accountability to anybody except, maybe, other pundits. There are lots of “journalists” who depend on creating more smoke than light. Generating controversy keeps them employed.

        Eh, I probably shouldn’t have made that first remark, but I guess I just don’t care for the most part what the national media people are saying about the Eagles. (I know some people do care about it however). In fact, if I’m looking forward to a game against the Redskins, I’d rather go to Redskins blogs and Washington newspapers to find out what they’re thinking about the matchup, and what they see as the strengths and weaknesses of the team they cover closely.

    I love listening to Moving the Chains on Sirius, but Pat Kirwan has a real bug up his ass about Chip Kelly. He thinks the sole reason he won’t succeed is because he’s coming from college. You can’t rule out that possibility, but I think it’s a very conservative, limited view of Kelly’s chances for success. You listen to Kirwan talk, and it’s like he really has a dislike for someone coming into his boys club with new ideas. Sorry, but the Eagles have too many talented players and play in far too weak a division to completely write off at 5-11. My prediction is 7-9 on the low end, 9-7 on the high, with a strong finish (thanks to a gelling D).

    Damn, Michael Irvin, that’s genius. I can’t believe no one has thought to tell Vick to slide sooner.

    Super Bowl here we come.

      “Outside of that, anywhere else in the season, you slide. Somebody’s got to say that, man.”
      Apparently, Irvin > Obama.

    I think Sheil and Tim post this update so they can reinforce how much more they know about the Eagles than anyone else on a national scene.
