New Instagram Series to Highlight Acts of Civil Disobedience and Protest in New Jersey
NEW JERSEY: For over three decades, Ed Forchion aka NJWeedman has fought for the legalization of marijuana. As one of the first Black activist in the movement, dating back to the early 90’s, Forchion has spent over 1200 days in prison, fighting for the right to smoke and sell pot.
Now, in 2020, with marijuana legalized in the majority of states, Forchion is part of a vocal collective that is fighting against the current legalization policies in his home state of New Jersey. Forchion asserts that new laws are being set to criminalize growers and small vendors like him, while awarding billion-dollar contracts to corporations for the sales, distribution and marketing of the plant.
In an effort to mobilize attention to this grave matter, Forchion is launching “Get on the CannaBus with NJWeedman” an Instagram Live series starting Monday, September 7, 2020 at 6:00 p.m. ET to 7:00 p.m. ET, to garner awareness and support per his current anti-legalization campaign in New Jersey.
