That’s right! Ultimately legitmate power only comes from the people. That means a jury has the right to nullify the effect of a law by refusing to convict based on the law.

I believe nullification only applies to GRAND juries, I.E. Federal and State cases.
You are always free to render your vote as you see fit, without fear of prosocution or prosecution what ever the court.
