San Diego ASA proudly presents:
Lessons Learned, the Jackson Verdict
K. Lance Rogers, Turner Law Group, APC
December 8, 2009 @ 7pm sharp!
This event is free, just as the plant should be.
For profit or not, it did not matter on December 1, 2009. In the case of the People vs. Jackson the jury decided “very quickly” and the verdict proves “conclusively” that due to the “medical marijuana affirmative defense“, a jury cannot convict anyone in a collective or cooperative of “selling marijuana” because selling marijuana is not strictly forbidden in the law that allows for an affirmative defense.
If the jury can not find the defendant guilty “beyond a reasonable doubt”, the defendant must be found not guilty based on our justice system, said the judge.
With regard to medical marijuana collectives & cooperatives jurors said;
“…the prosecution gave his kind of narrow definition during the closing arguments but there was nothing in the law that really backed that up…”, yet another juror said;
“…when you have an issue of doubt, the law shows that the benefit of that doubt NEEDS to go to the defendant…” and went on to say;
“…we had no evidence on the table that there could not be a profit in a cooperative…”
All who are interested in the future of medical marijuana through collective and cooperative distribution should attend the next San Diego ASA meeting at 7pm sharp.
Expert defense attorney K. Lance Rogers will provide us with lessons learned from the historic Jackson case and at 8pm he will offer a question and answer period for your lingering questions about this landmark trial.
