Jury Nullification

There is a weapon against marijuana prohibition that many American citizens don’t know that they have at their disposal. It can be used in states that have not reformed their marijuana laws, and don’t have medical or recreational marijuana legalization on the books. It’s like kryptonite. That weapon is jury nullification.

Jury nullification occurs when a jury refuses to convict someone of something because they consider the law that was broken to be an unjust law.
