Quiz: In New Zealand, is the defence forbidden from advising the jury on it’s purpose?

Jury Nullification Power!

A jury is designed to

protect society from lawbreakers, but it is also a means to

protect society from bad law

Jury independence is your power to

judge the law as well as the evidence

Since it has a

conscience

A jury can nullify a law

that it believes is unjust

No matter what the evidence, it’s your moral obligation and natural right to

declare the defendants of non-violent drug charges NOT GUILTY!

Judges are not required to inform you of

Jury Nullification Power!

In many jurisdictions it is forbidden for

attorneys to advise a jury of the possibility, and jurors must learn of it through extra-legal sources – like this art.

Fear of jury anarchy guides

such restrictions, and there are examples of nullification gone awry (e.g., racist juries refusing to convict white supremacists for killing black people)



Every year I design and new and even better “Octocrown” or A0 size poster that I want up everywhere in NZ with a nationwide poster campaign on the streets.

I’m sure one day we’ll love TPPA, but until that day, we have this poster! Exacto.



This graph of doom to me shows the backdrop perhaps helping the Mexican supreme court to uphold the notion of the right to the “free development of personality” against the cannabis prohibition.

So much killing: thanks Nixon for the drug war. Let the mexicans smoke doobies already. And pull back some of those 45,000 troops deployed since 2006 to fight the war.

New Zealand politicians should take heed and legalise cannabis to help reduce our gang problems, as we too are experiencing an increase in attacks on police and general assault and intimidation crimes hidden among overall reduced crime rates.

Here’s a legit conspiracy theory: a judge at the appeal courts suppressed the media coverage of the outcome of the Kelly van Gaalen appeal by order. Me and my ganja-gnomes have calculated by a process of deduction, that this means she is out on bail awaiting a re-trial. If she was back inside or had been freed then it would be front page news!

But due to the court ordered suppression you won’t see a peep from the mainstream media – it’s gone eerily quiet. UNTIL NOW.

I’m hereby breaking the silence and requesting all other media owners to do the same. Go one further and shout loudly for all juries to acquit Kelly in her retrial regardless of the evidence of the case. Ignore the evidence and go into the trial with bias.

I hereby instruct all Jurors to remember their responsibility is to deliver justice, not uphold the law. Acquit all cannabis accused from now onwards, and by any means possible you must also therefore acquit Kelly with prejudice!

58 different websites have carried stories about Kelly so it is in The Public Interest… Image available as PNG or PDF

Also, they had to have an election here is the results: https://www.fndc.govt.nz/your-council/local-government-elections/2015-by-election-kaikohe-subdivision/FNDC-Kaikohe-Final-Result-281015.pdf

All that  work just because she had to resign since she’s in the pris-o.

I’m gonna blow the lid on this undemocratic media cover up.

This is a case of democracy versus over powerful state.

I’m sick of seeing no news whatsoever since another scumbag judge ordered a media suppression order not to cover this fact in the media: she’s remanded out on bail pending her retrial (unknown date due to suppression order). Reason for the order: to avoid biasing the jury against a fair trial – apparently since it’s a case of public interest. I’m gonna blow the lid on this cover up so that when she finally does get a jury trial, they will know about jury nullification and been informed to acquit her and anyone else like her purely based on contempt for the prohibition law itself. Find some other way to reach the people of Kaikohe I will. I will ask them to consider nullification. If it’s not too late that is…. and she’s back the slammer another 2 years already.



The use of home detention has caused incarceration to skyrocket. New Zealand has very high imprisonment! Only 8 people were convicted of smoking weed in 2012 but suppliers are punished severely. It’s almost De facto decriminalised already! It’s high time to tax cannabis. Less income for gangs; More jobs created; Less Prisons; Higher GDP. The proceeds of crime act is not a very effective tax collection method, and the total recovered is dropping over time. Nice people take drugs too.

Since the Police decided to go easy on pot smokers there has been a steady decrease in the drug rates shown very clearly in this 20 year graph.

An official information act request shows only 8 people convicted of consuming pot in 2012.

 

Only 8 people were convicted of smoking cannabis in 2012

It’s pretty evident that the police are not interested in arresting innocent pot smokers – the results of this Official Information Act request from 2012 show that only 8 people were convicted of smoking cannabis.

I hereby declare cannabis decriminalised!
