Police in Wilson, North Carolina, have charged Joey Ricky Carson with using profanity on a public road or highway. They say he responded with profanity when they asked him why he was sitting in his parked car on a local street. The law they charged him under was declared unconstitutional by a judge in another county two years ago. The local district attorney says that decision isn't binding in Wilson but he'll take it under consideration when deciding whether to pursue the case.
A court ruled that officers did not have enough information to know whether or not stealing violates the Constitution.
It took a jury 26 minutes to decide that Jonathan Vanderhagen wasn't guilty.
This vote is "a hopeful sign that the harmful policies of marijuana prohibition will soon be a relic of the past."
Jonathan Vanderhagen believes a judge doomed his son to an early death. The judge says Vanderhagen's Facebook posts were intimidating.
