Winning your Marijuana Possession Trial, your Trafficking in Marijuana Case, your Distributing Marijuana Charge or mail order Marijuana Crime is central to voir dire and educating the jury.
I cannot emphasize enough!!! Look!
Marijuana nullification works, but you have to do it right and you have to know what you are doing! Absent a suppression motion being granted, marijuana and its amount in pounds, ounces and grams will come in at trial. You will have lost a lot of jurors in voir dire and it will seem like the best ones for you to have for this imminent Marijuana Crime. They seem like the best because they talked about marijuana openly, but there are "sleeper" jurors.
Our revered professionals in the jury pool:
Fireman, emergency medical technicians, doctors, nurses, attorneys, teachers and everyone but law enforcement, will be struck from juries because they understand the marijuana and marijuana medicinals. They are normally struck for cause because they state in voir dire that they can sit on a jury and be fair with convicting someone of a marijuana crimes or charges. They state that they think marijuana should be legalized and that they don't understand why it is not. They are almost impossible to recuperate when Defense has their turn at voir dire. But their is a catch, they will identify themselves as marijuana tolerant firemen, EMS, or school teachers because they have state their occupation. These are positions in society that people, from an early age, are taught to revere, respect and be like. There opinions matter! And they all have one thing in common in that they think marijuana, marijuana edibles and marijuana medicine is not a crime and should be legalized. They will champion the marijuana cause in voir dire at the wrong time, leading to their discharge for cause.
What do these fireman, school teachers, ems workers and others have in common that has them believe that marijuana should be legalized? Education. They are educated in emergency services, protecting our homes, teaching our children and they are in the front line and they do not see marijuana as a problem. These individuals are dealing with life everyday and they are educated about marijuana and individuals that are high from something other than marijuana. Life affects their beliefs like it does everyone, but they are in employment that is "life" intensive. Life and death, exigent circumstances and dealing with people current status unknown are daily problems for these culled out professions and many others.
