Hollywood, CA – Last month, over 500 party revelers celebrated the legalization of medical marijuana when cannabis activist Ed Forchion aka the NJ Weedman hosted his Lavish Libra Party at the Hollywood Hills Hemp Mansion, a prelude event to herald the return of the Cypress Hill’s Smokeout Festival. Four levels of entertainment overlooking the city of Los Angeles saw attendees happily partaking in the pleasures of roots, live reggae and reefer.
Building upon the success of his last two events, the first being the “Rooftop, Reefer, Reggae Leo Party,” NJ Weedman plans to take the festivities even higher. Saturday, November 28, 2009 will usher in his “Sexy Scorpio / Sagittarius Party – Bongs and Thongs” celebration! The event will be held at an exclusive mansion located in the Hollywood Hills, beginning at 8:30 p.m. Live reggae performances will provide the backsdrop to an evening filled with food, fun and festivites. For information on the “Sexy Scorpio Party – Bongs and Thongs” event, go to www.njweedmanpromotions.com . Shuttle service will provide transportation to and from the private location, with VIP limousine service provided by Jacoby Limousine Service (http://www.JacobyLimo.com).
“I love Los Angeles,” exclaims the New Jersey political exile. “We are living in the midst of a ‘reefer revolution’ and I am happy to be a part of it.
And now that President Obama has put a moratortium on the Feds raiding local dispensaries like mine, there is even more reason to celebrate. My events are a positive cultural expression of the times we live in. It’s all about ‘One Love’ and that’s what I’m promoting with these reefer events – ONE LOVE.”
New Jersey Weedman aka NJ Weedman.com discovered early on that marijuana soothed his suffering from asthma. An avowed Rastafarian rebel, the former New Jersey resident has openly and indiscriminately incorporated the use of marijuana into his daily practices and spiritual belief system. A well known cannabis activist, even before its legalization in several states, he founded the Legalize Marijuana Party in 1998.
NJWeedman achieved cult status and media notoriety when he was arrested for smoking the sacred herb in front of the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia, PA. His legal medical marijuana dispensary, the Liberty Bell Temple on Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood, CA has served to propel his cult status.
NJ Weedman’s video series, filmed from the shop, and seen on his website (http://www.libertybelltemple.com/Home.htm ) and at YouTube.com, commands a following of viewers from around the world. He regularly updates his footage with vivid coverage of the happenings in his shop, including specials on the vast varietals of medicinal marijuana he is now able to serve up legally daily to his patients. Located at 5642 Hollywood Boulevard, the dispensary’s name represents the basic concepts of democracy and faith.
A true “Superhero of the Potheads,” NJ Weedman is a hero of sorts for all his former East Coast colleagues. With coverage spanning CNN to MSNBC, national and international news media consider him a leading ‘talking head’ on all things cannabis.
NJ Weedman is also busy completing an autobiographical book, “Public Enemy #420,” the memoirs of a black marijuana activist, which he plans to release soon.
