Sun Mar 6 2016Cannabis Patient John Mazula Found Not Guilty in San Diego
Sun Mar 6 2016Ten Minutes to a Not Guilty Verdict in San Diego Medical Marijuana Case
Terrie Best of San Diego Americans for Safe Access writes: On March 1, the prosecution began its case against John Mazula, who was being charged with manufacturing medical cannabis concentrates. The case came down to whether the process John used to extract cannabis concentrate made use of butane gas or not.
The prosecution rested their case after not having proven anything but that law enforcement are experts at reciting how to make butane honey oil. They were to have proven John was making BHO (butane hash oil), they didn’t do it. And, there’s no honey oil, no blasted plant material, no used filters, piles of empty butane tanks or lengths of glass tubing to help them either.
I pulled into the El Cajon courthouse parking lot just in time to see one of John’s jurors. He turned out to be the jury foreman. He gave me a glimpse of what happened in that jury room. In the first few minutes the 12 introduced themselves, then at exactly 4:20, a fact that made some of them chuckle, they took their first and only poll. Without hesitation each juror at the table one-by-one pronounced John not guilty. Then they discussed why. The jurors blamed the police. They knew the case was poorly put together with no evidence to convict John. It was a manufactured case. The case against John was vapor, a waste of time and resources and the jurors took ten minutes to destroy it. The prosecution never lost the case because they never had one. John was not guilty, the DA only tried to make 12 people believe he was.
