Marc Emery: His Final Blog from U.S. Federal Prison

This is my last blog from the terminals of the US Bureau of Prisons. My sentence was for five years (1,825 days), and I earned all 235 days of my eligible good conduct credit, so my sentence officially ends at 1,590 days, which is Wednesday, July 9th.

Marc Emery Prison Blog: Hats Off To You, Justin Trudeau

I've always welcomed it when former prohibitionist politicians see the light, change sides and become freedom fighters wanting to end the injustice of prohibition.

Seeds, Raids, and the Beginning of the BC Marijuana Party

2001 was the biggest year for sales of Marc Emery Direct Seeds. It sure needed to be!

Marc Emery Prison Blog: How I Began My Plan to Overgrow the Government

CANNABIS CULTURE - Since the 20th anniversary of my activism in British Columbia is approaching on April 11th, I thought I would write a series of blogs about my early years, when there was no movement, no legal medical marijuana anywhere, books and magazines about cannabis were banned in Canada – in essence, there was nothing. Over the next few months I'll tell you about great moments in my life where I contributed to the marijuana movement and helped changed several laws.
