Do you think a judge should be allowed to ban you from defending yourself in court?
Because that is what happened in this story:
It is a weed related case.
Basically the judge banned the defendant, under threat of jail, from telling the jury that he grew the weed to alleviate his crippling and terminal cancer.
Why is shit like this even allowed?
