Circulating Petitions to amend laws & challenging political seats are not the only way to fight in this marijuana movement, explains Chad Moody. According to Moody, an effective way to fight back is thru JURY NULLIFICATION. He said that he was informed that the marijuana movement in Colorado began to gain steam when juries began nullifying these marijuana cases.
Some people don’t know about the doctrine of Jury Nullification, as its not talked about in the court rooms anymore, said Moody. He further explained that at the time the US Constitution was drafted, jury nullification was “common place”. The idea behind jury nullification is that the jury can get to disagree with the King’s BAD LAW & to refuse to enforce it REGARDLESS of the evidence, Moody added. “A single juror can keep a bad law from harming people”, he said. He stressed that more people who are against cannabis prohibition need to get on these juries and to STOP AVOIDING jury duty. He said to consider it an opportunity to help vindicate somebody’s rights. His closing statement on Jury Nullification was: “It is your right as a juror to refuse to convict people of an immoral & unjust law. And if there ever was a law that was immortal & unjust, it is cannabis prohibition. God gave us what no government should take away”.
Chad Moody, a practicing criminal defense attorney known for fighting marijuana cases in Oklahoma, is also the republican candidate running for Governor of Oklahoma to beat out incumbent republican Mary Fallin. Primary election is June 24, 2014.

Its been reported that Wayne Shaw, the 2012 GOP candidate for Oklahoma senate district 3, does not know what the 10th amendment is, according to Qadoshyah Fish. Shaw was a no show at the candidate forum in Tahlequah, Oklahoma for Oct 9,2012. He is running against democrat Jim Bynum for this seat. Jim Wilson (democrat) is not running for reelection.
Its agreed that Jim Bynum political signs have flooded the area & that there was no Shaw activity on the ground. Therefore, it’s a safe bet that Bynum is favored to win this election.
Ms. Fish, said that when Shaw spoke in her area, he responded that he did not know what the 10th amendment was; and further indicated that its a mystery as to how he beat out Cyndi McArtor in GOP primary, who was said to be much more articulate & knowledgeable of the issues.

Bob Anthony (R-OK) is seeking re-election as Oklahoma Corporation Commissioner in 2012. Another republican Brooks Mitchell is running against him. Both of these candidates will compete in the primaries on June 26, 2012. There are no democrats running for this state office.
Anthony says he’s has business experience & is a military veteran (Airforce & Air Defense Artillery). He explains that the Oklahoma Corporation Commission regulates big monopoly public utilities such as electric & gas, railroad crossing & cotton gins. He responded in this interview that the commission however does not regulate rural water districts due to state legislation. When I suggested that the Oklahoma legislatures place rural water districts under the corporation commission’s jurisdiction, he indicated that the commission already has a lot on their plate.
This interview was done at Oklahoma GOP state convention on May 12, 2012 at Embassy Suites in Norman, Oklahoma. At this state GOP Convention I did not see his opponent Brooks Mitchell. Therefore I was unable to meet with Mitchell.
Howard Houchen is running for Oklahoma state senate (District 5) in 2012 to beat out democrat Jerry Ellis (incumbent). Since both of these candidates are in different political parties, they will be on ballot in general election in November.
When asked Houchen about his position on open meetings (open government rule) at the state capital, he said that he supported HR1004 petition and that his opponent Jerry Ellis did not. There were talks amongst Oklahoma State legislatures about allowing all representatives discuss bills so that it was not left up to the chairman to arbitrarily kill it without discussion. Then suddenly they decided against it. Here’s the website that explains the HR1004 petition.
Also Houchen informed me that if Jerry Ellis were to win, that he could not fulfill his full term of office. Since this was the case with Ellis, Houchen added that he wanted to give the people a voice throughout the entire legislative process.
Oklahoma State senate district #5 covers the following 5 counties: Atoka (eastern portion) , Choctaw (entirety), Leflore (southern portion), McCurtain (entirety) and Pushmataha (entirety).
The general election is November 6, 2012.
