    To Justice Minister Nicholson I think Marc emery should not be extradited to the US.I think you people are weak and can not protect us the canadians.I think this man helped people and saved people suffering from illnesses that can not be cured by your crap medicine.I think the canadian government are a bunch of drug dealers I think the US are a bunch of drug dealers selling medicine that kills people you should look in the mirror and really see whats going on.But you know what this corruption will not be dealt with.Here’s someone standing up for his belief and he has hundreds, thousands I think millions behind him on this one when I say he should not be extradited he should not serve and jail time what so ever he did nothing wrong.He should still continue to help people that require the help and If they choose that medicine is killing them and possibly marijuana is helping them then they should be damn well be allowed to do what everyone wants to do.I think the Canadian government and US government should be jailed or possibly given the death penalty for putting this man in harms way.

    My heart is with you both. You have chosen to do G-d’s will. When governments, individuals, groups impose their will upon an individual’s sovereign free will, they are acting against G-d and will reap what they sow sooner or later. Trust that you did the very best that any human being could do to confront that which infringes upon anothers’ sovereignty and destiny. This is a spiritual war of what is good and what is evil. Its been going on for thousands of years and is coming to an end. Theirs is an ‘unsound reality’ and they know it to and they need ‘false’ laws to keep their unsound reality going. Well, we can all see the emperor has no clothes. The money system is bogus. The laws are bogus. And the truth is consciousness is expanding in leaps and bounds and they simply cannot ‘control’ this like they used to. Take heart. Be strong. Have faith that you are doing the right thing and are to be commended for such unheard of oppositions for that which is inherently ‘wrong’.

    Nobody has an ‘inalienable’ Right to impose upon another. Nobody. Not Kings. Not Popes. Not politicians. Not other individuals. Not governments.

    G-d is with you and all those who fight for justice!

    hiya –
    kinda tough times, i did see a black helicopter the other day,
    but with 10,000 dead in the mexico drug war, ( of which almost none are related to cannabis – apparently it is not profitable anymore, and the drug lords are not too interested in it )
    just be happy marc is not in the 10,000 number above.
    i mean, be happy, 2-3 years in jail is a joke
    you should be happy
    just be happy
    happy

    “Man will never be free until the last king is strangled with the entrails of the last priest”Voltaire wrote.

    People all governments are corrupt and the fear of god control’s us which brings war and makes us have hateful laws.There is no Justice in this world, and if you want change it has to come form the individuals that turn there backs on the the oppressor of the people and says “Ive had enough” and walks to there own pace in that state of grace.
    The forces that be try to control us through fear and Mark you scare the shit out of them them because you are one who has said “enough”…So i say thank you Mark and Jodie Emery and thank you the countless others, thank you all for fighting the good fight its the only one worth fighting.

    Shame on you conservatives. Get a new hobbie aside from ruining non violent drug offenders lives. I hope they vote you guys out next election. I seen how proud you guys were to stand up to vote for bill C-15. It was pathetic.

    Dear Justice Minister Nicholson,

    As a Canadian citizen, I believe that most if not all issues perpetrated here in Canada can be resolved on Canadian soil. More importantly any non violent crimes such as those regarding Mark Emery should not only be dealt with here, it should be handled in a mature and informed manner. This extradition case is not only about Mark, its about the freedom or freedom we believe we have here in Canada. The sovereignty of all Canadians is at question if Mark is sent away from his loved ones, for selling nothing but harmless plant seeds.

    As a centerpiece in the news and drawing huge attention, most of the citizens are calling to free Mark Emery. And as a Member of Parliament, I urge you to listen to the people of your country. Mark should spend his time here in Canada.

    Even if you conclude Mr.Emery should go to jail, at least let him carry his time out in Canada.

    The United States prison system doesn’t need another burden on their shoulders and neither do we, so lets handle this responsibly, as compassionate, rational human beings. Please say no to the Extradition request.

    Thank you for your time,

    Evan Langendorf

    I think the point is to try to get across to the political zealots that there are people out there who disagree with their ignorant and senseless methods of conducting public/political business.

    Sure, they won’t listen at first, but if they’re consistently inundated with letters, comments, phone calls, etc., then maybe they’ll either get with the program or get the hell out of office and let someone with some proper ethics in.

    We can hope, at least.

    After all thats been happening I wonder how activists like you find the strength to keep sending letters addressed to the Minister of Justice. Do you still believe that there is justice left in this country ? To respectfully send your pleas to a Minister who does not give a damn for Marc Emery.
    Youd better be off sending that to the Minister of Injustice or to the Tar sand King Stephen Harper who doesnt give a damn about global warming.
    What does it take you to realize that youre writing to idiots and morons ?

    The Canadian government are real bastards. There’s a case of a Sudanese immigrant who was hassled for a long time by CSIS because they wouldn’t believe he wasn’t connected with Al Qaeda. When he went back to Sudan to see his ill mother, Canada tipped off the Sudanese to arrest him. He was imprisoned and tortured for years. I heard his whole story when he told it on the Parliament channel. Pretty horrendous. The Canadians involved were very malicious and obviously had no regard for human rights whatsoever. The basics of the case are here but the details of the Canadian agents’ deplorable personal behavior are absent http://www.cbc.ca/world/story/2009/09/24/abousfian-abdelrazik-sudan-lawsuit.html He’s suing the Canadian government for 24 million. I think Emery should sue them for 50 when he comes back. It’s a clear case of maliciousness, not to mention illegal behavior such as conspiracy to manufacture and money laundering, neither of which will they ever be punished for by the US.

    That’s a very interesting concept you have there and I wonder what they would do – probably wouldn’t do much since most of us don’t have much political clout… as individuals, but as a group, that’s a different story. They’re all about who stirs up the pot most (lol, no pun intended) and putting a stop to activities that work against their intentions.

    I think what’s most important right now is that we don’t let go of the fight just because Marc is temporarily out of the picture. He’ll be back, and we need to keep the momentum of the movement going stronger than ever! Keep talking, keep educating, supporting and…

    OverGROW the goverment! Don’t throw your seeds away, drop them in planters everywhere!

    just a thought but what if you had 500 Canadians send seeds to the judge in seattle who resides over emery case?whould they try come for all of us

    Dear Mr. Nicholson

    I am writing you today about the extradition of Marc Emery to the USA to face charges for his selling of Cannabis seeds.
    I can not believe that the Canadian government would have allowed the extradition to happen. I am shocked!

    Marc Emmery did not commit a crime in the USA. He did it in Canada. He should be charged in Canada and if found
    guilty, he should serve his time in a Canadian Jail.

    If he is sent to the USA and is found guilty he should be returned to Canada immediately to serve his sentence in Canada and
    all other non-violent cannabis offenders who are in USA prisons aswell. Nobody should ever go to jail for Cannabis or any other
    plant for that matter.

    With Respect,

    Brian Kerr

    As much as I’d like to grab him, shake him and say LEGALIZE IT I think that a measured approach is more useful in this case. They just might listen when they are told that we no longer think they believe in our rights or their own laws…

    To the Justice minister of Canada, the Hon. Rob Nicholson,
    I would like you to know that as a Canadian citizen I am outraged at the idea that another Canadian citizen, Marc Scott Emery is being extradited to the United States for selling marijuana seeds through the mail. Regardless of whether you think that marijuana is harmful or not, the extradition of a Canadian citizen to a foreign jail for selling marijuana seeds is an unnecessary and heavy handed approach. If Canadians wish to consider their country a sovereign nation then Marc Emery should be serving his time in a Canadian jail, not an American one. If this government truly believes in its policies on crime then we should be dealing with our own problems, not exporting them to another country. I implore you, have him serve his time in Canada immediately to show Canadians that you are respecting our rights and that you believe our laws are moral and just.

    Friends – Below is a copy of a letter I sent to Justice Minister Nicholson. Perhaps he’ll read it, perhaps not. But if enough of us send him letters about how we feel, then perhaps we’ll make a difference. It’s just too important not to.

    Dear Justice Minister Nicholson,

    As an American citizen it may not be my place to make a request of the Canadian government, but I do so because I believe that it is not right for the American government or DEA to request the extradition of Marc Emery on the grounds that he possibly sold cannabis seeds to American customers.

    We all know that cannabis is harmless, and we know the lies
    behind its prohibition, and yes, we understand the law. But the nature of this law, and this extradition, are unjust and unfair. Honest, upstanding citizens have tried for many decades to turn this unjust law around, but we cannot do it alone. We need your help to make things right.

    Millions of United States citizens, cannabis consumers and non-cannabis consumers alike, feel that Mr. Emery deserves fairness, justice, and proper treatment, and that proper treatment is for you to refuse to sign his extradition papers and deny the DEA their prize. They do not deserve
    to gloat in such twisted and morally corrupt success. Marc Emery deserves to be a free man because he has harmed no one in America, nor Canada, or any other country. The only grief he has caused has affected the misguided
    and corrupt pride of the DEA.

    I beg you, for Marc’s sake, and the sake of millions of others whose lives are ruined, not by cannabis, but by law enforcement of unjustifiable laws, please don’t sign the papers.

    Respectfully,
    Annah *****
