A New Jersey man with multiple sclerosis who says he grew marijuana to treat his condition will remained jailed while he appeals his conviction.
State Superior Court Judge Robert Reed had barred references to Wilson's medical condition during the trial, ruling that personal
use was not a defense, and that at the time New Jersey had no law sanctioning the use of marijuana for medical purposes.
Wilson cited Reed's decisions in his appeal and sought to remain free on bail until the matter is decided. But Reed denied that motion Friday.
