TRENTON, N.J. — A New Jersey marijuana advocate dubbed “NJ Weedman” has been arrested on witness tampering charges and was broadcasting on Facebook Live when SWAT team members burst through the door.
Mercer County authorities say Ed “NJ Weedman” Forchion was arrested Friday afternoon; he was indicted Tuesday by grand jury. His broadcast captured the moment officers entered a room at his girlfriend’s house.
“There’s probably officers in Trenton or somewhere looking at my Facebook Live right now,” Forchion said about seven minutes into the first broadcast. “I hear car doors opening but I’m not going to go near the door.”
A few minutes later, Forchion ended the first broadcast. He posted another video a short time later showing police officers opening the door and telling him to show his hands:
Forchion tells NJ.com he thinks the new charges stem from him revealing the name of a confidential informant.
Forchion was arrested in April during a police raid of his eatery, called NJ Weedman’s Joint. He has spent time in and out of prison for marijuana possession. In 2012, federal agents in California raided his pot farm, confiscating 600 plants, according to CBS New York. He is charged with selling marijuana at his establishment.
Prosecutors have said an informant bought marijuana from Forchion multiple times before the raid and provided essential information on the sales.

I can only believe you are obviously ill informed in several areas and by now you are figuring out that the rabbit hole or snake pit is much deeper and darker than even you had believed… When it comes to the pure evil that seems to have a hold on nearly everyone and everything.
As it appears to be swallowing you too! At this point!
Which bothers me because I thought you had more heart and wisdom than your displaying and maybe it is some of your actions…
Or the Lack of Action or thought before action in some areas, or looking at all the perspectives in others… If not the same areas… When it comes to your keeping promises.
For those of us who had some faith that you would… Because of some previous good experience we had with you…
I believe you are missing or overlooking some important issues and/or perspectives in your so-called solutions that you might should take the time to reconsider or consider.
Like you can’t get rid of Cartels in Government by replacing it with a new one that’s hand picked!!!!
So disappointed that I thought you meant to do your best to keep that promise…
I knew you might be ignorant in some ares, yet, I believed you would take some time to educate yourself on all the perspectives too!
Seems I was wrong and like I have had to admit that fact one too many times.
Like when I had to admit that Legalize was in fact Legal Lies!
Seems that be what you be telling!!!
If you know how to Repeal Obama Care (which I supported as it is currently unconstitutional as it is mandated) and you really want to fix some things in big pharma and “return power to the people” than Please protect and return our earth, air, water, gardens, stop breaking Native Treaties and Repeal Marijuana Prohibition instead of telling even more Legal Lies!!! As it = Marijuana aka Cannabis Sativa L aka Hemp is a food first!!!!!!!!!!!!! Prohibition leads to Malnutrition which leads to Disease, War and Genocide!!!
Just because we were established as a Penal = Prison Colony of the Crown = Great Britain.
As it was incorporated through D.C. the “District of” and/or the “Contract of Incorporation or Corporate Merger” aka “The U.S. Constitution”
Doesn’t mean our children have to go out like that or that they should be consumed by those who conned, framed and laid in wait for them to do so.
And then there is KARMA and/or physics like perpetual motion you know ?
