Steve Marlowe, peaceful person and long-time marijuana advocate, was driving his peace signed car in Florida in October, 2012 when he was arrested for 19 grams of cannabis (marijuana) - a misdemeanor. Instead of pleading guilty and paying a fine, Steve says he has done nothing wrong and wants a jury to hear his case, believing at least one juror will have common sense, see the unfairness and vote not-guilty. 64 years old, Steve uses cannabis for his arthritis, preferring it over debilitating prescription medications. He faces up to a year in jail if found guilty.
Steve's first court appearance is Dec 12, 2012 at the Sumter County Courthouse, Courtroom B, in Bushnell, FL. Calling on all supporters of legal marijuana and jury nullification to be there to support him.
