REVISED EDITION - And so begins the memoirs of the man, most know as the notorious New Jersey Weedman! Ed Forchion aka NJWeedman has achieved cult status in the medical marijuana community and beyond for his stance as an advocate for his right to legally smoke marijuana.
A well known cannabis activist, even before its legalization in several states, he founded the Legalize Marijuana Party in 1998. An avowed Rastafarian rebel, the former New Jersey resident openly and indiscriminately incorporated the use of marijuana in his daily practices and spiritual belief system, much to the chagrin of the state's local authorities. His legend was confirmed when he was arrested for smoking the sacred herb in front of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, PA!
A disarming intellectual, with a vitae that includes running for Governor, Senator and a Congressional seat in the state of New Jersey, as well as a stint in prison for various related herb charges, the self-professed "pot head" finally tired of fighting the powers that be. In 2008, NJweedman fled New Jersey in a self imposed political exile to sunny Ca., a state that, per the passage of the Prop. 215 and SB420 recognizes the legal use of marijuana for medicinal purposes.
"Public Enemy #420," is the tell-all memoirs of this marijuana activist. Ed Forchion is one of the few Blackmen in the medical marijuana movement to actively and openly campaign, position and politic for his right to exercise his freedom of choice to partake in a ritual he considers sacred. Once a self employed truck driver, Forchion is now the victorious owner of his own medical marijuana dispensary in California on the famous Hollywood Boulevard. He names his dispensary the Liberty Bell Temple as an ode to the basic concepts of democracy and faith.
A true "Superhero of the Potheads," Ed Forchion's "Public Enemy #420" is chock full of amazing statistics about the "politicks" of marijuana as well as the page turning adventures of his life.
