‘Prince of Pot’ About to be Busted

(Photo by Jeremiah Vandermeer)The days of freedom are just about over for Marc Emery, the Vancouver, B.C., pot activist wanted for four years on U.S. drug charges.

Emery, who has described himself as the Prince of Pot, will surrender to Canadian authorities on Sept, 28, his wife says in her blog.

Then he will be shipped to Seattle, where he is expected to plead guilty as part of a deal with federal prosecutors and be sentenced to five years. He wants to be able to serve the time in Canada.

It will end a long and strange prosecution. He was indicted in Seattle four years ago over charges that his former Vancouver business sold marijuana seeds.

The case soon sparked controversy. Emery sold seeds, not marijuana and was busted by U.S. agents in Canada. Then, too, Emery, a frequent candidate for public office, had long been a promoter of pot, often through a printed, then online magazine, and he mocked U.S. drug laws.

But this summer Emery decided to take a plea deal. He explained online that his lawyers told him that extradition to the U.S. was inevitable.

    Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man’s appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

    I like the “was busted by US agents in Canada”
    The corrupt US government must really really have felt that Mr.Emery represented a global national threat to the US.
    I just wish our RCMP would have gone in the US trying busting some porn kings who export their material into Canadian land.
    O Canada… we stand on guard for thee….
    Hip Hip Hip Hurrah
    Fucking sickening hey?
