Not sure if there is one but someone needs to get a petition going.

John Ray Wilson is heading off to jail in New Jersey this morning (Friaday Jan 27, 2012) to serve a five year sentence for growing marijuana in his backyard.

John has multiple scleroses and was growing the marijuana for personal use. He claims there are times when it is the only thing that give him comfort without nausea. The lower court judge refused to let Mr. Williams state that he was only growing it for personal use or that he was using it to relieve his MS symptoms. The NJ Supreme Court has refused his appeal.

To put this in perspective, 80% of child molesters serve no jail time under current law, but instead are required to seek therapy according to the American Bar Association.

thats so ridiculous another reason marijuana should be legal.

well, i happen to own several breweries. if it's legalized, people would prefer to smoke, rather than drink my beer. at the very least, they'd drink less of my beer. i pay congress very well to make sure legalization does not happen.

that has to be the stupidest reasoning ive heard so far for keeping it illegal. people drink beer cause they like beer.. not cause its legal. if it were illegal they would still drink beer. besides it shows your greed why could you not start selling marijuana if it was legal and increase your profits?? greed does not produce critical thinking skills i guess

dumb ass... i am suggesting that there are powerful interests that make sure there is not competition for recreational products.

of course there are.. and that is stupid on thier part as they could become even more powerful if they just took control of selling the stuff

it's a question of margin. they prefer to sell higher margin products. legalize MJ and everyone's growing it themselves downstairs, whereas not everyone's willing to make the effort to process beer. so price destruction would occur and hence margin destruction.

i disagree that people would grow their own..people are lazy and thrive on convenience its not that simple to do and how many people do you know that grow their own gardens? even though they have a balcony or a yard? not many

Read all of the problems caused by illegal drugs it doesn't have anything to do with beer or the drugs. Crime is one of the easiest ways to perpetuate a source of employment and revenue for private companies. If it wasn't drugs, it would be some other easy to vilify act, behavior or substance. Way back, it was burning witches. It's that 1% mindset.

CALL or TWEET to Governor Chris Christie 609-292-6000 or @GovChristie – ask him to “Pardon medical marijuana patient John Ray Wilson!”

Please pass this along. I suggest calling at this point.

That's because the 0.1% elite run the biggest child sex trafficking rings. The worst ones are in the top positions of law and government. Just search "elite pedophilia rings" or "elite child trafficking rings". The elite are raised with abuse and pedophilia from a very young age to "toughen" them up, and are sworn to cover for each other no matter what.

You may want look up on youtube as well, these people who have courageously come forward to tell their stories of the elite abuses that are used on their members. Brice Taylor, Cathy O'Brien, and Svali.
