NH Says Nullification is Normal

Could be one of the largest changes in the American judiciary system in decades.

Disagree with a law, even if someone is guilty, you can acquit.

The implications are huge, because everyone now gets to vote on not just whether the accused is guilty, but the mortality and benefit of the law the first place.

Obviously, this will hardly affect things like violent crime, and if we're honest, white collar crime too (for a capitalist nation we have some strange beliefs, courtesy Hollywood, stupidity, and a liberal press), but the big one will probably be marijuana. With the right jury, those laws don't stand a chance.

Interesting.
