Rich Paul, a noted cannabis legalization activist in New Hampshire, was convicted in 2013 of selling cannabis. He served a “county year” in jail. Now, his appeal brief has been filed, and his case will be heard by the New Hampshire Supreme Court on June 18 at 9:00 AM.
Supporters who enter the court are asked to be respectful and non-disruptive.
The issue at law is the question of whether the judge’s jury instructions violated the statute that makes the defense of “Jury Nullification” permissible in New Hampshire.
