Weed Mobile Rolling Through NJ - My9 New Jersey

Weed Mobile Rolling Through NJ

Posted: Updated:
They say every superhero needs a super-vehicle and now there is a weed-mobile rolling through the streets of New Jersey. The Garden State’s “Weedman” Ed Forchion is running for Congress and his tribute to marijuana legalization is one of the more unique campaign tools the Garden State has ever seen.

“In 1998 when I first publicly came out in support of legalization I was considered a zero, and here we are in 2014 and I am now considered more of a hero,” Forchion explained.

Even though the custom painted van with chrome rims and marijuana leaves is a bit of a novelty, as is his run for Congress, he says his message is legitimate.

“I’m not that high where I believe that I’m gonna win, but I think just bringing attention to the cause. Forcing the Democrats and Republicans to have to talk about this issue, I accomplished exactly what I wanted to,” he said.

Weedman submitted his signatures to run as an independent for the seat being vacated by Congressman John Runyan. He is now officially on the ballot.

Although few expect him to actually win, Weedman believes that his participation in the election and the attention of campaigning in the weed-mobile, could bring his legalization message to the forefront. We’ll see if Weedman’s run can gain support for legalization, but in the meantime, be on the lookout for the weed-mobile rolling and smoking in a neighborhood near you.
