Jurors Refuse To Consider Pot Case

Full-fledged revolt broke out over marijuana possession and tax-stamp charges

I had a jury trial this morning on level 3 possession with intent MJ, level 4 possession drug paraphernalia and level 10 no drug tax stamp. During voir dire, my almost all white, middle-class, middle-aged jury went into full rebellion against the prosecutor stating that they wouldn't convict even if the client's guilt was proven beyond a reasonable doubt—almost all of them!
