Since the 1990's, there has been a notable front-line freedom fighting cannabis activist very outspoken from coast to coast in favor of cannabis liberation and whom also is accredited for having greatly helped get medicinal cannabis protected under New Jersey law in 2009. Edward Forchion, a true cannabis super-hero known best as the "NJ Weedman" co-founded the "United Cannabis Ministries" in October of 2005. From that, Eddie established his own independent branch of UCM that he named "Liberty Bell Temple" which was located in Hollywood, California. Additionally, Eddie owned a prominent medical marijuana dispensary in Hollywood as well, but apparently it was shut down after a federal raid in 2012. In 2014 Eddie additionally became an honorary member of Oklevueha Native American Church Kautantowit's Mecautea and blessed as one of the churches Supreme High Counsel Emissaries. Forchion had already long set his focus upon the state of New Jersey and on it's position regarding cannabis "Marijuana" and ultimately fairly quickly got in trouble back in 2002, which led to a feud with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie. While on provisional release from jail on possession charges, the NJ Weedman continued his activism by advocating for marijuana legalization despite being warned not to by state officials. Thanks to his dedication to the cause, medicinal marijuana use was legalized in New Jersey in 2009, however, recreational use is still illegal because according to Forchion, the Trenton city counsel are "Cowards."
