Apart from the fact that these people are pretty high profile (and make a bad ass TV show), probably the most interesting aspect of this article is the point they raise about jury nullification. I've put that part in bold for those who don't want to read the whole article.
Reason had an interesting commentary about the issue of jury nullification raised in that article:
Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
