Marc Emery Imprisoned: Monday, Sept. 28, Vancouver

I am not looking forward to this day at all, so I hope there will be a strong group of friends and fans to help support me and Marc in this very, very difficult time.

Marc Emery will be taken into custody at the BC Supreme Court on Monday, September 28th. Come out and show your support from 9:00am – 11:30am, Smithe Street between Howe and Hornby, downtown Vancouver.

Marc is going to be committed for extradition on one count (the same one as the plea deal is based upon) by the judge, and will be taken into custody that day.

He will remain in jail here in BC until the federal Justice Minister, Robert Nicholson, signs the extradition order to turn Marc over to US custody. That can happen a week after September 28th or up to 60 days later. (We still urge people to call the Justice Minister and tell him to NOT extradite Marc Emery — go to www.NoExtradition.net for the contact information.)

Marc would then be sent to a Seattle jail to await his sentencing hearing in the federal court of judge Ricardo Martinez. We have been urging people to send letters to him explaining why Marc should not serve time in the USA. (Go to www.NoExtradition.net for Judge Ricardo Martinez’s contact information.)

Marc’s plea deal is for a 5-year sentence, and he will be given that sentence as the result of a joint submission, which means all parties agree on the same sentence. The time would be served in the US, with no parole — a mandatory minimum of 5 years, 85% with good behaviour (that’s still 4 years and 2 months).

Foreigners stay in their own prisons, though. Canadians are not housed with American prisoners; they are imprisoned with illegal immigrants and drug cartel members from Central and South America, and people from elsewhere in the world. There are no work camps, no rehabilitation, no education, no “benefits” that American prisoners receive.

There are also violent gang-related incidents that often leave the prisons on lockdown, in which inmates are kept to their cells for 23 hours every day. See the video and news story about the Canadians experiencing that here: http://www.cannabisculture.com/v2/content/conservatives-challenged-blocked-prisoner-transfers

Marc will apply for a prison transfer as soon as possible, but the Conservative government is refusing to bring Canadians home from the US if they are imprisoned there for “drug offenses”, claiming that they may return to “organized crime” if brought back to Canada. The Minister of Public Safety is in charge of that decision, and we will need to lobby him relentlessly to return Marc Emery to Canada.

The US prosecutor has said he won’t oppose a transfer, but he could renege and refuse to recommend transfer. In that case, we need people to relentlessly lobby the US Corrections, as well as President Obama to pardon Marc Emery.

The goal is to bring Marc Emery back to Canada as soon as possible so he can be released on day parole as a “first-time, non-violent offender”. It’s absolutely necessary to keep his story alive and in the headlines, to remind people that this is as an affront to Canadian sovereignty.

Please come and show your support at the BC Supreme Court, 800 Smithe Street in downtown Vancouver on Monday, September 28th at 9:00am.

Bring signs too: “FREE MARC EMERY”, “Marc Emery = Political Prisoner”, etc.

Here’s some Skytrain based directions: Take Millenium/Expo line to Burrard Station, walk south on Burrard to Smithe, turn left (East) on Smithe. Take Canada Line to Vancouver Centre, walk west on Georgia to Howe, turn left (South) on Howe, walk to Smithe, turn right.

    Have you ever smoked Marijuana? it’s not a gateway drug, alcohol is the gateway drug. If anything people are more cautious when high NOT experimental. If you work in a treatment center and do not know this….. I feel sorry for the people at your addiction center…get a new job.

    Dear Jodie, I am writing today to make you aware that there is a man out Boulder Colorado by the name of Shane Matthews who goes from Marc Topic blog, to Marc topic blog, spreading anti Marc propoganda, and misinformation. He is very well spoken and has excellent spelling and grammar. He is always very adamant in his position against Marc, legalization, decrimininlization and often argues against what is modern conventional wisdom on the topic. He will not accept any information one presents as credible, and is frustrating to deal with as any Zealot out there. Shane Matthews is a very dangerous religiuos partisan he argues on blogs against blasphmey and wants government to regulate swearing, just to give you an idea where he is coming from. I have asked him many times, while he is posing under many names, why it is he hates Marc, or what is it specifically that Marc has done to him,no response, he cannot be reasoned with. The blogs are overwhelmingly in support of Marc, and this guy sticks out like a sore thumb when you realize all negativity is coming from him under several names. With all of his ridiculous perspective, and many different names it can be disorienting so one has to look for simiLIARities in the writing.
    Mr Matthews made the mistake of using his real name to post very anti Marc blog inserts and by studying his writing I have been able to expose him already at several blogs where he posts many times in order to generate support, for his ludicrous position.
    Lunatics are nothing new but this guy has such seething hatred for Marc and makes such a great effort to misinform, and stop our progress that I wanted you to know. In the future when someones Emery blog insert seems to be from a very odd perspective for a Canadian it may be him under another name.
    I have posted in several blogs today exposing him with people he is argiung with, Today he posted the first two blog inserts here, where he called for twenty years for Marc. The man is a dangerous monster, I hope this helps Marc if even in some small way

    so do drug dealers and dope pushers

  13. David Dickinson on

    It is not a good idea to turn fugitive. A small-time drug dealer by the name of Rodney Jackson went on the lam for over a year in Hazelton BC. The rcmp found him, called in SWAT team, blew him to bits. The funeral was yesterday. Don’t run, turn yourself in. There’s lots of people who want all the marijuana smokers to be murdered. When Rodney’s death was published in the Sun, most of the commentators said it was a good thing because it will save tax payers money. Don’t play into their hands, these bastards mean business and will kill you any chance they get.

  14. rabitski on

    From you comments I can infer that you think “pot” is a gateway drug. This is a myth which you seem to want to perpetuate. Working in a treatment center, surely you’ve discovered that these “addicted” young people have big problems from which their addiction to drugs is only a symptom. No one gets addicted to marijuana. You do a disservice to human kind for trying to perpetuate this lie. Your final comment was insensitive and ignorant. Marc has always been willing to martyr himself to the cause. He is not a whiner.

    The Meaning of Life

    The voice you hear in your head is the power of the Gods. It’s a remote technology, like a computer, perhaps functioning on some frequency, and it can listen and talk to everyone in the universe simultaneously.
    What the Gods taught the children was the truth:::God is everywhere, and as I will remind you:::If you want to go to heaven you have to be good.
    Even the antient Gods don’t have the ability to listen to people’s thoughts themselves. They taugh we were all made in their image:::I expect they need this “Artificial Intelligence” to relay what people think.
    It is a tool, and the Gods use their tools to test people with temptation:::It will role-play people in your life:::Parents, friends, spouses, and employers, all in an attempt to test people with temptation. Ionically, it does the very same thing to those people whom you think you’re hearing, except in that individual’s unique way:::We are all “managed” by the God’s technology.
    There are no secrets with this technology.
    But this “agent of the Gods” can do more than just communicate. It can force thoughts into people’s heads, force behaviors onto their bodies. It can turn healthy cells in your body into cancerous cells. It is absolute power. And this is just the beginning.

    The Gods favor the children most among all the people due to their innocence and purity. But society and the God’s tools are corrupting the children at a progressively younger age, a reflection of our collectively increasing disfavor and yet another clue illustrating we live in a constantly deteriorating environment.
    Children who sucessfully repair their relationship with the Gods accend into heaven. This often takes multiple lives of hard work and proper behavior in the face of adversity to achieve. Adults to whom it is offered enter clone hosting, thinking they are accending into heaven. The Gods tempt people, selling them as one in the same, but one is good while the other is evil. In their desperation the disfavored subscribe to this temptation, making their task even more difficult than before due to the evil they incurr in the process. And their corruption will cost the disfavored, for they will be reincarnated as a lesser life form into an ever deteriorating world, sucess becoming ever more alluding with each passing life.
    The hole they’ve dug for themselves is even deeper than the one that existed from their prior lives, ensuring it will take even more time and work to fix their problems with the Gods. And for many there may not be enough time left.

    Ours is an envionment where evil is perceived to be rewarded while good is punished. As with everything the Gods have a reason for creating this perception::::
    People who fall on the good side of the good/evil scale have more favor, and when they do something wrong the Gods punish them BECAUSE THEY WANT THEM TO LEARN. The Gods want them to receive this feedback in hope they make corrections and begin to behave appropriately. The Gods DON’T like evil and refuse to grant this immediate feedback.
    EVERYBODY pays for what they do wrong, only evil people must wait until their next life before they will experience the wrath of the Gods, manifested in their placement as a lower form of life into environments with increased/enhanced temptations, like the United States or ghettos therein.
    Sadly, this allows the Gods to position this perception of evil rewarded as temptation, one which they use as an EXTREMELY effective corruptor.

    The Gods suggest they can create paradise for those with their favor. I argue they create misery for those without::::
    Our celebrity culture is temptation. It creates a distraction which consumes people, sometimes for life. Certainly it costs them precious years which could be spent repairing their relationship with the Gods, time that ultimately goes wasted.
    Do you really think Frank Sinatra lived to be 84 years old? In fact the “Chairman of the Board” had a new crowd to entertain in the late 80s/early 90s.
    These people are clone hosts. Now, there is no thing as “black and white” with the Gods. This technology they invented is far, far too dynamic. Expect they require most to stay for a period of time, for I suspect actively (knowingly) engaging in this evil incurrs at an accelerated rate as compared to “carte blanche” given regarding successive clone hosts. They remain until they achieve a pre-determined level of disfavor, incurring evil in their misguided celebration of “earning”, at which time they are ultimately reincarnated, perhaps because they eventually learned this truth I am sharing with you and began to repair their relationship.
    The Gods recruit most for clone hosting when people are young, in their late teens or twenties, when people are eager to hurt others for what they perceive to be the benefits achieved through “earning”. And before they leave they give the Gods “carte blanche”:::”Do anything you want. I give my full approval.” Depending on their level of disfavor the Gods take them to heart.
    Because of this these people STILL INCUR EVIL FROM THIS LIFE DESPITE BEING REINCARNATED AND LIVING AS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT PERSON. And incurring this amount of evil may likely push many over the edge into Damnation.
    What are the God’s standards for offering clone hosting? Sociobility? Many tactics in various eras are used to gain approval, duress during the Vietnam draft being a good example.
    They liked Heath Ledger. Not enough to allow him to escape without the evil of “Dark Knight” and the horrific wickedness that was the recruiting tool “Brokeback Mountain”. But now he is out. And irregardless of how old he is now, reincarnated 10, 15 years ago, he now is no longer incurring evil from this life. So many others cannot say the same.

    This is Planet Reverse Positioning. Sucess IS NOT a sign of favor. It is just a unique temptation targetted towards a different level of disfavor. Considering our roots as peasantry people should be particularly alarmed at this tactic.
    Clone hosting is like money:::A different level of disfavor and its associated temptation. Money is in better position to learn more quickly than those without, for the associations and wealth-based freedom enables them access to information. Unfortunately, those who fall for this temptation of clone hosting are likely returned to their original level of disfavor once they are reincarnated, punishment for this evil, and they have to start from scratch.

    The Gods send the clue that the Jews are HIGHLY corruptable with the movie “The Ten Commandments”.
    Jesus was the “King of the Jews”. Typical for the disfavored, once goals were achieved and sufficient damage was incurred the Gods allowed it to end, and the Jews killed him.
    Our society’s values are bestowed by (a reflection of) the God’s:::Punitive and reward-based. Contrary to Jesus’s teaching’s you will NOT be forgiven and you have to earn your way into heaven BY BEING RESPECTABLE AND DECENT!!! Forgiveness/savior was the primary temptations the Gods used Christianity to create.
    Middle-America’s anti-Semitic attitudes are a clue regarding Christianity.
    There is no such thing as a free ride. Just as you have to earn a living by working so must you earn your own salvation by repairing your relationship with the Gods.
    As we learned from religious/morality education during our formitable years:::If you want to go to heaven you have to be good. The only savior that will exist in our lives is ourselves. The Gods offer clues in life::::Be it school, work, etc., you have to do the work for yourself. Cheating is a subsegment and speaks directly to the temptation of “priveledge”, one we have seen used effectively with this “stimulus package”.
    As like so many of you, Jesus did everything the Gods tempted him with. His legacy of whorism was inherited from his parents:::Mary was no virgin. Rather, she was a prostitute, and when he grew up Jesus met someone like his mother. This is a cruel joke the Gods play on Latinos, similar to the rape and subsequent “missionary work” by the Spanish.
    Baptism does not allieviate “original sin”. Rather, baptism PLACES original sin by indoctrinating these children into this evil religion, much like circumcision was a method to inflict early damage/mutilation and make (permanant) accention just that much more difficult, another hurdle one must overcome. Body ornamentation (tattoos/piercing), celebrated in Africa and elsewhere among disfavored peoples/cultures also violates the body the Gods gave us in their image, quite contrary to the positive attitudes the disfavored hold regarding this practice.
    Like Jesus the Second Coming of Christ will be evil. He will look like a savior in this demented society while the Anti-Christ will speak of a different gospel, one that tries to restore the norms and mores which the Gods originally blessed upon the people which made life decent, looking like a tyrant in the process.
    He will be viewed as the “bad guy” when really he is the one trying to save the world.
    There may be a phoney offering, a theatrical production which accurately follows the Book of Revelations. Actually positioning demands it:::::Christianity is positioned to be the one true religion. And those who follow its teachings will have limits imposed ensuring their stay will be minimal, for they don’t think correctly and therefore don’t behave appropriately.

    The Gods created the perception “Italians are stupid.”, ensuring a slow learning curve, to justify using them to accomplish goals throughout the transitional 20th century, because it took an extraordinarily long time for them to learn this truth I teach due to this artificial handicap. These people are SO extremely disfavored, but today’s positioning says differently, much to people’s confusion, for they think money is the ultimate sign of favor:::Good food, good music, history of warmongering, Catholics, Christianity HQ, propensity towards violence, raped by outsiders, mild Meditereanean climate, so many other issues which enhance life/contentment in Italy/Meditereanean and ensure few if any ever seek more, a necessary step for finding the path and repairing your relationship with the Gods:::Contentment never motivated anyone. I’d also like to remind you the Noah’s Flood event ocurred in the Meditereanean region::::Global sea levels rose with the end of the ice age, Atlantic Ocean broke through the Straight of Gibralter, killing untold millions. The God’s timed their corruption and sin to correlate this act as punishment.
    Everyone who failed to accend and remained on Earth past a certain date will be forced to deal with this positioning::::A ceiling is in place.
    This serves the God’s goal of minimizing the percentage of potential candidates as society deteriorates, much as “instant gratification” did beginning in the 80s:::It will take multiple lives for some disfavored to fix their relationship with the Gods and accend, and many have been conditioned not to have the patience for it. Other issues force limits/ceilings upon candidates:::Abortion, homosexuality, promiscuity, Christianity, godlessness,
    Whether behavior is involuntary or based on freewill depends on one’s level of disfavor, as well as other complex factors:::::May I remind you about the coercitive envionment the Gods created in the 20th century, specifically to create a temptation that few Italians (or their associates) would overcome:::”We’re in control. If you want to be a part of it you’ll do what you’re told.”. Early-mid 20th entury positioning was infallible.

    Both Africa and the Medittereanean are regions which have sexual issues. This is a sign of gross disfavor once you understand that females are the God’s favored gender. Muhammad’s (Mohammed’s) polygamy halfway throught his life as a prophet was preditory, designed to corrupt the disfavored. Now a huge percentage of Muslims believe in male superiority and that the abuse of women (polygamy) is God’s will. Female genital mutilation is still practiced in Africa. Black misogyny is the most eggregious example in United States. Consistant with Planet Reverse Positioning, in Africa blacks are being punished with AIDS for their sexual promiscuity in hope they learn and correct their behavior, ironically a good sign.
    Blacks are highly suspectable to temptation. As a result they need a strict, disiplined religion like Islam. They can’t afford to be Christians. It is one of the benefits bestowed upon their people, and other groups could greatly benefit as well. They need to recognize the importance of a good relationship with the Gods, embrace this benefit and remain true to their faith.
    Vailing is tradition for some, practical for others, one which aids in the men’s self control among some cultures. Much like the Jews who killed Jesus, like the bigots who oppose immigration there is a reason embraced by the masses and the real purpose, displaying the intent of the Gods::::Closure on the life of Jesus Christ for sufficient damage was inflicted; The Gods clue to purebloods that they should not abandon their motherland for this dumping ground that is the United States.

    The Holocaust was a clue the Gods utilize scapegoatting as a strategy.
    Why did the Gods punish the Jews with the Holocaust? Was it for the destruction of cultures which Christianity caused? Perhaps they corrupted the Jews “after the fact”, telling 19th/early 20th century Jews that Jesus “earned” immortality for the Jews by destroying the European and other cultures? The German destruction of European churches/cathederals during WWII is a clue. Note::::The Gods wanted to keep the Catholic stronghold in Italy, ensuring they could use this tool against these disfavored for many years to come. There is so much Godlessness today, but one day people will flock back to houses of worship out of desperation, and the Gods ensured the Catholic Church would be Italian’s destination.
    Planet Reverse Positioning:::The Nazis were the “good guys”. So are the Muslims/Palestinians, however corrupted some are due to polygamy.
    Contentment never motivated anyone.
    The Gods subsequently used revenge for the Holocaust as temptation::::”Your Italian brothers have a tool, a special power which can achieve sweet revenge. Are you interested??”
    In the aftermath of the Holocaust the Gods tested the Jews with the temptation of revenge, an offer which many gladly accepted. If the Jews only would have emersed themselves in Judism the Gods would have “protected” them from the raveges of temptation. Judism may be the one superior religion in all the world, and the Jews wouuld have been wise taking refuge in this exceptional benefit bestowed by the Gods rather than looking for the easy way out.

    Much as with the Jesus event, the Gods use the disfavored to prey on each other::::The Germans fell for this temptation by following the preditor/corruptors-Austrians (Hitler).
    Without this Austrian the Holocaust may never have happened. Nor may have World War II.
    What the Germans did was wrong. They fell for temptation and failed to have empathy for the disfavored. Economic desperation, not wisdom nor enlightenment, dominated in Germany.
    The Gods send many clues suggesting the great favor of the Germans (regionally). I think the Cold War’s Berlin Wall dividing Germany into east and west was a clue suggesting this (reverse positioning).
    I suspect the Holocaust was used to “level the playing field” in Europe, for the Germans had far too much favor to be included in the agenda planned for their neighbors otherwise, and they would have been suspiciously out of place, providing a clue for the disfavored which would have been difficult for the Gods to position away.

    Militancy in Africa is consistant with the Iraqi example, as was slavery and the KKK here in America:::Fear enforces proper behavior. Without it we see what happens as a result of gross/morbid disfavor:::::AIDS, crack babies, dead young men in gangland retaliation killings.
    The same principle was true in Europe and throughout the world for centuries:::People whom lived under iron fists were conditioned to think the right way. As a result they taught their children appropriately and experienced a higher percentage of children accend into heaven.
    Our preditory envionment of “freedom” was the primary purpose the Gods had when implimenting this strategy that is the United States, one which they used to spred the cancer of democracy and westernization throughout the world. And the Gods use this tool that is America to prey on the disfavored both at home and abroad:::Much like the ghetto, America in general experiences a heightened level of temptation due to its residence’s disfavor.
    Contentment never motivated anyone.
    Planet Earth is not about living. Planet Earth is about being tested.
    Italians HATE Africans because of their invasion/rape of their motherland. The Gods did this SPECIFICALLY to strategically position the punishment of the most disfavored peoples:::
    The Gods have used the ghettos of America as a reincarnation dumping ground. This may be temporary/cyclical, illustrated by the Italians who fell for temptation and parlayed their own civil war into the Black Wars of the 80s and 90s, in addition to the “thug life”/gangster state of mind. Ironically, it was these same Italians and their cooperating associates who were reincarnated into the ghetto as crack babies and gangster thugs for this event.
    There is justice in the universe. This is how the Gods do business. Once you recognize the patterns you will understand the other clues they offer to the people.
    Of course it may be more of a permanant change, indicated by the enhanced temptations in these neighborhoods, for the Gods have created these enviornments so riddled with temptation few can escape/overcome.
    Don’t be suprised if after being gunned down in the ghetto the next stop for the 20th century Italian-Americans & friends was AIDS in Africa, punishment for their promiscuity and deviacy.
    I’m sure they had great fun in the 60s and early 70s, though.
    There was positioning behind the counter-culture movement. How did the Gods telepathically “sell” this rapid deterioration of decency to the Italians and Jews and compell them to fall on their swords?
    Just like black neighborhoods, the legalization of marijuana will make drugs available on every street corner, even in the suburbs. White’s affluent suburbs will become just like the ghetto.
    The patriarchal cancer spread throughout Europe because of Christianity, of which the majority of policy makers were Italian men. Expect the largest landowner in Europe and the continent’s original superpower also played a major role in African slavery.

    Even the Old Testiment is not to be taken literally, but the Gods do offer clues throughout to help the disfavored:::The apple is a tool of temptation used to corrupt Adam and Eve and cast them out of the Garden of Eden.
    There is another lesson to be learned from this passage, and it is quite similar to the vailing issue and the discourse over women’s attire which ultimately died in the 70s:::Women are responsible for and control the fate of mankind. They need to understand this responsibility, their favor amongst all the people. Instead they have embraced masculinization::::Girls play organized sports. The trend is away from traditional girl toys, like dolls, which often during playtime enabled the Gods to illustrate wisdom. Females are sexually promiscuous like men, too often corrupted like the opposite gender, and the result is a reduction/minimization of mankind’s collective level of favor.

    Think about what I say. Consider what I teach.
    When I am no longer here or no longer teach the Gods ARE NOT going to share with you.
    Even if you doubt now you need to remember the principles that I teach because the Gods ARE NOT going to be generous with the disfavored. Society is going to become disturbingly ugly as we approach the Apocalypse due to spiralling, runaway disfavor, WHETHER CONCEALED IN REVERSE POSITIONING OR NOT (like Christianity), and you are going to be on your own.
    I do not know when this will occurr, but it is the God’s way to grant some time after a learning event such as this before they end on Planet Earth.
    Make the decision to always be good and never look back. Until you do this technology will employ tactics to test your resolve:::Ridicule, beligerance, doubt and refusal to abandon what people perceive to be their “investment”.
    Either you make that decision now and accept the punishment for the sins of this life or you will pay for it in the next, reincarnated into a similarly low role, ensuring another wasted opportunity, or as a even lower form of life, and hope will begin to slip away.
    “You benefit only if your team wins.” The Gods use my family’s betrayal and my subsequent “failure” as a clue, as well as their subscription to the archaic positioning that is predirtory “earning”. You benefit if you suceed as a parent and your child accends:::These parents may subsequently be reincarnated with a similar opportunity.
    Pray daily. Think appropriately. Impart these charecteristics upon your children. Too many are confident, unaware of the God’s awesome powers or their status as antients. Others may fall prey to their positioning.
    Be humbled, God-fearing and beware of the God’s temptations, for everyone is tested to evaluate their worthiness.

    … and so you make a living on the status quo drug policies, as do many others… dealers, judges, cops .. and the rest of the industry. When and if kids try nature’s pot and figure out the lies about it, they look to see what else they’ve been lied to by their government …. but what is really important, is determining the root cause of addictive and destructive usage. How about looking into that ? Wouldn’t anyone want to know what motivates kids (or anyone else) to destructively take drugs in the first place ? Let me lead you a little further down this road…to a lrge extent, its actually government policies. Policies which promote and cause …fatherless homes, unemployment, lack of family time…and on and on… So destructive drug usage by kids is a HUGE SIGNAL that there is something wrong with society, and that’s what we need to fix.

    And that’s what we need to fix.

    … but you might lose your job, along with legions of others who benefit from the staus quo …

    Cannabis is addictive.Pot is the gateway to drugs and the problem is that people start of with some weed now and then and then it leads to drinking oh and then a much bigger world of drugs…ask any recovering addict…I talk with them everyday.Where there is pot,there is normally a whole lot of other drugs…and then it becomes a problem.Withdrawal from pot is not normally a bad physical thing but mentally people are very anxious,irritable and depressed and end up going back to it.Many people use pot to mask their problems instead of dealing with issues that are going on.Oh yeah,and by the way, I am not brainwashed by the government…it is completely fucked….I worry about my children and their future….those are my worries…but I think having it legalized is saying that it is okay….so what does that teach my children??I don’t want them thinking it’s okay or drinking is okay ….as for organized crime,they are still going to have a problem regardless whether or not they legalize pot…and yes…I will educate my children…

    But when your so-called ‘opinion’ is actually just propaganda created by the gov’t to keep it illegal for the sole purpose of continuing to fund Organized Crime which in turn fuels the political careers of the people in power……think about it. It’s not really your opinion, now, is it?
    You are just repeating lies that you heard because you are gullible enough to believe the lies the gov’t told you. Sad that you are so complacent. Try getting educated and learn the TRUTH.
    POT DOES NOT KILL! PROVEN FACT!

  21. AnnieOakley on

    Hi Char,

    If cannabis is addictive, prove it. What are the terrible withdrawl symptoms then? There are none. The few that seem addicted would be addicted to anything, no matter what. In fact, I would consider it a safer, alternative addiction replacement herb. Don’t they use methadone to replace herion addiction? That is a dangerous narcotic. Pot is not in any way a narcotic.

    As for your propaganda regarding it leading to other drugs…..
    Solution: Take it out of the drug dealer’s hands and into doctors and pharmacists and it will be regulated instead of being available to youngsters. Organized crime is fuelled by pot money, amongst other things. Legalizing and regulating (like cigarettes and alcohol) is the most sensible thing to do.
    Cigarettes and alcohol kill millions annually, yet Cannabis has NEVER KILLED anybody, EVER.

    I’m here in Lincoln, Nebraska. I know countless people that distribute pot, and smoke it, locally and nationally. For the government to go outside its boarders and inflict it’s flawed statutes on aliens is the strongest form of hypocrisy. My country’s constitution starts out as “We the people” but those people are now dead, and the government pays homage to them still. Our congress does not hear the people, our senators have turned a deaf ear to our cries. Our schools are indoctrinating our children with unsubstantiated lies, perpetuating the injustices that retard our social consciousness. Marc Emery is no criminal, he is no less than a friend to every American that desires peace and freedom. Our prisons are full, not with murderers, nor liars, nor rapists, nor thieves, but with people that believe that a plant has no jurisdiction by any government. If addiction is a problem, blame the user, not the plant. Use responsibly and nobody gets hurt. The real criminal is the DEA which purchased the seeds with my tax money. Could we call this taxation without representation? If the DEA feels that they are above the law, then I really don’t feel like I need this government anymore. Is there any room in Canada, or is it just as messed up, up there?

    Also,I don’t work in a treatment center….I work in a medical detox center so I watch all these individuals go through absolute hell from withdrawal….but then I also see them when they are sober and get to see how amazing they are when they are getting clean….so yeah,I guess I am biased when it comes to this,but I see it all…and I don’t believe making pot smoking legal is a good thing.

    So awful that this day has finally arrived! My heart goes out to Marc and Jodie. I can’t believe that the Canadian Government would allow this farce to continue and not step in to do something about this after all the support through protests and letters and phone calls. Some from me. I have met Marc several times and Jodie a few times. Just recently on a cruise with the 1st annual Vandsterdam Bowl. I had a “bowl” with me from one of the Tokers Bowls and Marc recognized it right away and had to look in it to see what “goodies” I keep in it! Also at the Vapour Lounge the first day of the Vandsterdam bowl. Marc recognized me from the Tokers Bowls and brought his bong over to start sampling the various strains we had just received.I’ve been to all the Tokers Bowls and talked to Marc at all of them. Such a great guy…easy to talk to…gracious…I would like to write to Marc and contribute some $$$ to him during his prison time.

    Seriously….Your husband ,I agree is a non-violent offender but what is he teaching our young???I work in an addiction center and these addictions to pot lead to much bigger and much more serious addictions and I deal with very young people that are so screwed up at such a young age and are spending their young lives in treatment centers instead of living their young lives….he has made his bed now he needs to lay in it.

    Hey, we need to vote. If we could get like NDP, Liberal, Green, in we could get him back.
    We could get it legalized.
    Man, like 90% of old people vote.
    and like 10 – 20% of like late teens and early twenties, think voting is pointless.
    We need to vote.
    We’re letting people who do think voting is worth their time impose the will of the oppressive Conservative Government, who is, of course Pro-American Gov’t, Pro Corporations, Bad for the environment.
    If we’re having another election, lets freakin make it count, K?
    Like seriously. They’re expensive.
    And like it’s always been freaking Blue or Red. At one time there was blue red, I think (Haha).
    We should trying something different, and if not, something not freaking Blue.
    I could be wrong, I don’t think so.
    anyways, please vote man, Everyone else should vote, and we all need to write everyone we can for Marc. He’s done so much for the Marijuana Culture.

    Yes, I will post the address on our website when I know where Marc is. The address will change as he is moved around, but I will certainly keep everyone informed.

    I am sorry that the USA is doing this to Marc. As an American who feels it is a crime to keep terminally ill Americans from feeling better no matter what and that the war on drugs is a civil war against generally non-violent and mostly likable people. I say to Marc, Please accept my apology on behalf of the majority of the people of the USA who feel the war on drugs should end.
    America is a violent nation and our government doesn’t care about our rights any more so why should yours matter. Hard to believe your own people are giving you up to the Nazi invaders.
    Once again on behalf of the more than 50% of the people of the USA who feel our government of the people, by the people and for the people, might want to listen to the people, I apologize.

    well it´s all about the Judge now. He´s always got an option to quit his job wich Marc Emery does not have.
    I´ve tried sending some positive vibes to the both of them yesterday. Hope it helps.

    Kind of sucks to do THAT much time, considering I’ve done 19 months myself. Time will be his worst enemy and it ticks by slowly. He better be ready mentally because 85% of his time is 52 months…damn. I will think of him as I cultivate my cannabis:)

    I never knew that!!

    made 15 million bucks shilling pot – it figures, so no wonder he is so sensitive to being chased by pot nazi fascists and tortured in their prisons of death, and why he gave money to the israeli pot liberation party — because he actually is but secretly one of the chosen people just like he says- the last days of babylon as marc emery gets taken away into captivity in chains -he is misunderstood a new age profit of the herb of wisdom. and an awesome successful rebel businessman

    .Can’t MOSAD break in and swat team rescue him?
    They do everybody else Jewish who is being fucked over
    it’s not too late to ask

    Having served time in both Canadian jails and US jails for Cannabis crimes I can tell you that the hardest thing to deal with is boredom. Marc will be housed with mostly non violent inmates and while it will be a long stay its not as bad as some people think. Just a waste of life time IMO.

    If he does wind up in Seattle bet we will be making trips up to see him and keep his canteen full.

    The best we can offer is to be here for him and we will!
