LA's Dopest Attorney gives us her legal opinion
on why the jury will find Phil Spector innocent.

We'll see, but I think that this was not helpful Allison.

If he is convicted, you have put some sand in the eyes of the public.

I am with you on ending cannabis prohibition, and as far as ending the war on drugs, but I do not want to link to this kind of thing. I will still read your blog and if I see something worth linking specifically, I will still do so.

I just want you to understand why I am removing you from the sidebar of Cannablog.

WOW.. no wonder i never got into drugs. they warp the mind as is clearly shown by whig's comment. there are more important things in life than weed. oh lets say like LIBERTY. if a lawyer cannot opine about the state's possible failure in meeting its burden of proof, well please puff puff and pass it the other way.

I am very offended and perturbed that someone would knock me off their links simply because I presented an analysis of---not my opinion on the guilt---Phil Spector. What, do non-pot defendants, not deserve their day in court? And should I shy away from pontificating on the subject because it involves murder not drugs? And how does this affect my views on drugs or anything about my character or website? I'm sick of marijuana elitists who think that other types of criminal defendant are inferior to those charged with marijuana crimes.

I believe that he deserves his day in court, and a judgment of guilt or innocence by a jury of his peers, and the best legal representation he can possibly have in defending himself from the charges.

I do not believe that there is a benefit to a public rehabilitation of Phil Specter or a disparagement of the process which he is being afforded given the violence of the offense with which he is in fact charged unless he is acquitted. And yes, I believe he is not guilty until found so by the unanimous judgment of the jury.

You can surely take some criticism, I'm not against you, I just don't think this is what I endorse for the reasons I have stated. If you think my reasons are not good, I'm still reading.
