MS Patient in NJ Appeals Pot Conviction

The lawyers of John Ray Wilson - who was sentenced in March 2010 to five years in prison for growing 17 marijuana plants - are appealing his conviction in New Jersey.

Mr. Wilson suffers from Multiple Sclerosis and has claimed from the beginning that he used marijuana for medical purposes in treating his symptoms. Now free on $15,000 bail while his lawyers appeal, Mr. Wilson's case has a good chance according to Ken Wolski, the Executive Director of the Coalition for Medical Marijuana New Jersey.

“This is an excellent appeal that has every chance for success," he said.
