John Ray Wilson Enters ISP Program

A man with multiple sclerosis who was sentenced to prison for growing 17 marijuana plants at his Franklin township  home is now a free man.
The Star-Ledger reports John Ray Wilson left prison Thursday after serving five months of his five-year term.

The 39-year-old Franklin Township man was admitted to the state’s Intensive Supervision Program, meaning he will be electronically monitored for the next 16 months.

Wilson had challenged his conviction, claiming the trial judge erred when he wouldn’t let him tell a jury he was using the marijuana to treat his disease.

But an appellate court rejected his argument, and the state Supreme Court declined to hear his case earlier this year.
