Retrial of NJ Weedman Postponed Until September

Ed Forchion—better known as NJ Weedman—had originally asked for a speedy retrial after a jury deadlocked at 7-5 when he was originally tried on marijuana distribution charges. Now, he has agreed to allow his public defender to argue that charges be dismissed and a judge has set a retrial date in September. NJ Weedman was pulled over by police with a pound of marijuana in his trunk which he maintains is for personal use to treat symptoms brought on by his giant cell cancer. [Inquirer]
