5 weeks ago was our last full day together…

It’s almost 11pm on Sunday, November 1st. Five weeks ago, Marc and I were spending our last night together, counting down the 11 hours until his court appearance and incarceration on Monday, September 28th.

We spent our last Saturday and Sunday nights staying late at the office with our friends/employees, smoking a lot of cannabis and talking about good memories. Marc signed the last sets of “Prince of Pot” DVDs, large and small “FREE MARC” posters, and copies of CC #57 (printed the day of the raid, and released with a warning sticker on the final seed catalogue).

Our last night together at workOur last night together at workWe took some photos of everyone together in our store/office those nights, and cherished every moment, knowing that we would soon be torn apart for what could be five long years…

I’m crying now, remembering how precious and important those last few days were. It was hard to come to terms with the fact he was going to jail. We knew it was coming and we accepted that, but it doesn’t make being separated any less painful. We tried to do everything as we would normally do, but also take time out to just love each other, and had a beautiful final few days together (though every day we spent together was wonderful, and the last few months especially so).

Everything seems much more intense lately. I cry almost every day because I miss Marc so much, and sometimes I cry when reading the newspaper because I’m just so sad and concerned about the way our country is changing. The Stephen Harper Conservative government is taking Canada in a very scary direction — they’ve doubled the prison budget, introduced laws to eliminate parole and early release, passed laws that take away the double time credit for pretrial imprisonment, restrict prisoners’ rights and rehabilitation programs (no more farming or animals, fewer in-person visits, and possibly even taking away voting privileges like in the USA), and spending undisclosed billions of dollars on the military… Those are just some parts of the overhauling of Canada, and there is so much more everyone should know…

Marc wrote an incredible review of the Conservative Party’s terrible impact on Canada called “Stephen Harper and The End of Days (of Canada as we know it): Revelations about the Conservative Party’s direction for Canada”, and it can be heard on his fourth “Prison Pot-cast” audio report (click here to listen). You should also listen to his other “Prison Pot-cast” recordings, as it gives you a look into his daily life and thoughts while behind bars.

It’s difficult accepting what has happened but I’m staying very strong, and I’m learning a tremendous amount running every part of our organization and business, and managing various campaigns. I get through each day with a lot of support, and Marc calls me at least 4 times every day. I get to visit him every Sunday; in fact, I saw him earlier tonight. Visiting Marc is one of the best parts of my life — seeing him, looking into his eyes, examining his face and remembering what it was like to kiss and touch him…

The glass barrier and awful little metal sound grate prevent us from being able to make any physical contact, but we put our hands up to the glass and stare into each others’ eyes. I so cherish that one hour together each week… I can’t imagine what it’ll be like to not see Marc this often. I don’t know if I’ll be able to visit him in the USA, as he might be far away in Florida, Georgia, Texas, or wherever there’s space in the federal prison system, and I might not be able to make it to his facility…

I wish he could just serve his time in Canada. People should be contacting the Justice Minister and asking him to have Marc charged for the same crimes in Canada — after all, selling seeds is against the law, the Vancouver Police investigated Marc in 2003 (but the Crown refused to lay charges), Marc conducted his activities in Canada at all times, and other seed sellers have been charged in Canada. It doesn’t make sense that Marc Emery is facing extradition to, and imprisonment in, the United States.

Please do what you can to help free Marc and all drug war prisoners. It’s horrifying that so many people must suffer under prohibition… I’ve made it through five weeks so far, and there are many more to come, but I know that this hard work and suffering will help me grow, so I can be strong enough to change the world alongside my husband and hero, Marc Scott Emery. I love you, my prince…

    That is very true. he shouldnt of done that, but many people do it, hes gonna serve his time. But nobody should have to go through that kind of pain of losing someone that imoportant to them. I get what you are saying but im very sorry for Jodie. I hope everything is going well.

    All my wishes

    First off I apologize if I offended you as I meant no disrespect. I looked at it at first as one of those situations where a little kid snitch’s on another for name calling. I also saw it at first as if its not true it can’t affect your reputation. Unless your dealing with uneducated people who won’t look something up for themselves, and believe all the hear say they read online. Thinking about it now though. There are plenty of people like that. So I understand what your saying. If that’s the only way to get haters to shut up about you then so be it. Personally I believe all the good things Michelle Rainey who I admire a lot says about you, and your magazine. Not someone who’s emotionally unstable right now, and running off at the mouth. You can call me one of the ones that’s jumped off the emroid clan band wagon but still respects some of their clan. I had a lot of respect for Marc when I first learned what he was doing. But after seeing him say he wanted this fight with my government so he could change the law. Then cry when being locked up. As well as saying he cried a little when seeing the prison food made me lose all respect for him. It makes him seem like all bark, and no bite. I’m starting to lose respect for Jodie for crying to get sympathy for herself, and help for Marc in her videos. When it’s obvious that when comparing the people that show up to the 420 event in Vancouver and the people who are at that pointless vigil. It seems like not that many people care about Marc being locked up. I still respect Greg Williams, and Chris Bennett though. I more than likely won’t be at the Toronto expo, but I hope you have a great time as these expos sound like a whole lot of fun. You take care to and have a great day.

    That comment from Marco shut her up. Although that’s such a pussy move. Stop falsifying my reputation or I’ll take you to court? lol People, and their fucking law suits now a days. Whatever happened to not giving a fuck what people think Marco? Although how anyone could let themselves get punked by Marc is beyond me. If the man talks all that shit to my government, and then cries when heading into court to face a 5 year sentence. More than likely he’s all talk, and nothing more.

    // However you forgot he also heckled the US Drug Czar John Walters //

    valuless point- ,, In spite of Mark Emery boasting he damaged the Drug Czar who then sent his ziombies after him to eat his brains..that ain;t what happened

    1) Emery paid $500 for a table to seat his wipehead friends to heckle on command, ya Marc basically paid the Drug Czars speaking fees with his own drug money, – >>what a tool

    2) the room was mostly full of cops–and as the Drug Czar was a high ranking US official he was covered by armed security -what was Marc gonna do> throw a sandwich at him? >> get real

    3) Marcs claim that he so angered the drug Czar that he went home disgraced then sent his evil Yankee minions undercover after him to destroy him is a mentally ill fantasy..Marc Emery is a bigmouth- the room was full of Canadian RCMP and high ranking Vancouver cops.. they all recognised him as the Canadas’ premier asshole surrounded by obvious uncool street drug culture twit gang. In a room full of law enforcement professionals they sort of stabnd out– bearded and wearing pschedellic clothes,,.

    All anybody organizing the event had to do was glance at the conference table reservations list in advance and see f clearly ” Party of Four assorted vague wipeheads starring MARC EMRY- THE PRINCE OF POT . ” .

    or all anyone had to do was look at the cheques that arrived to pay for the table- AVALON SUNSPLASH_- Vancouvers’ Drug Culture Corporate Bandits requesting vegetarian platters and oversized ashtrays –>> some secret

    The cops probably had a hug laugh at Marcs expense- likely made bets that marc would spark up a big dick shaped joint- and they would then be able to bust him without a warrent.. and pick up his stupid friends at the same time,,

    Marc posed for a photo with the drug Czar-who in performance of his duties appears in public wearing body armor..- remember the Drug Czar also does the luncheon circuit in Columbia, Afghanistan where __ ALL__ the guests are Cocaine & Opium barons pulling the same stunt here as el Marco de Mucho Royalee des Pottos –aka retarded dope fiend goofs with an expence account- and nothing else to do – >>> Big fucking deal

    — and nobody knew he was Marc Emery??
    Come off it!
    They did so.
    .they took his $500 and fucked off,,
    Marc barks at a passing jet
    and imagines he has shot it down.
    .no wonder he’s in the Psyche ward in jail

  12. DamaskinosWasRight on

    If you want to understand the DEA, the best example is to study monkeys.

    When a big monkey hits a smaller monkey, the smaller monkey will not fight back but instead find and even smaller monkey to hit.

    The DEA, FBI and all other law enforcement agencies in the USA are now obsolete because gang stalkers poison whomever they like and the police are afraid of them. The USA is no longer a real democracy.

    The DEA is like the smaller monkey that got by the bigger monkey ( the gang stalkers ). To prove that it still has some worth, it finds a very little defenseless monkey ( Marc ), and beats the crap out of him.

  13. DamaskinosWasRight on

    It is very hypocritical to go after Marc.

    In the USA, the FBI, DEA and every other federal and state law enforcement agency IGNORE the gang stalkers that are allowed to openly and notoriously stalk, harass, poison and irradiate people.

    Do a web search on “gang stalking” to see.

    In the USA, voluntarily smoking a harmless weed is bad but belonging to a gang and going around poisoning people gets you respect and freedom.

    Maybe Marc’s real mistake was a lack of gang membership and being a peaceful civilized good person.

  14. Christopher David LeBlanc on

    Yeah he was as you said Marco Renda. about Marc Emery. I wouldn’t of posted my full name and told people my profile on facebook is wide open for all the public can see and be honest that Marc did threaten people that didn’t agree with him. He got what he deserved. This guy is a goof simple as that. The best that we can really hope for is that the prison pop in the states doesn’t treat Marc like a celebrity and deal with him accordingly. Marc didn’t think that someone like me would bash him years later when I had the chance. You are a goof Marc. Maybe you should have jodi send you some KY because you may need jerk off.

    I hope they legalize pot soon so i can get stoned and maybe find comments like this funny. in all seriousness marc emery is on a mission he knew what he was getting into it is a very serious cause he has many people die due to the drug war many suffer and fighting for your freedom rights is a very serious cause. his wife is like a widow of war when someone goes to war and gets killed one does not say to the widow that she has no right to be upset because she supported his fight. If anyone has been following what marc has done they would know he is no idiot he knows how to get what he wants and people need to respect him and fight with him.

    Yes, you read it here, you can thank this bunch of narcissist. I especially loved it when you bad mouth Michelle who was really only innocent one of whole bunch as Narc drug her our of a bank and a real job and shoved her medical butt out to be his jail cover dummy. Do you really not know anything about what Marc did to so many other peoples lives, he destroyed my family and a few others…laughed when i was in jail…how do you think people like me feel.

  19. Danger Dan on

    There you go Jodie– your latest gossip/slander target has rolled in and easily reveals you hard at work in the manure pile you are shoveling at random..Apparently, it’s you who is flinging falsehoods and then glibly accuses people who don’t agree with you of the crime of not knowing anything. Other people actually do know things you are too stoned to notice.. and here they are, returning your serve with a clear head.

    This shock you are experiencing is called ” Getting Truthed Out ” .liL’ GTO the Prince of Pot was uncomfortable with that concept as well and look where it got him? Adored by intoxicated idiots , loathed by people with brains. arrested by people with a sense of responsibility and soon to be imprisoned by people with integrity. This habit of firing off fictional angry lines without thinking, to bolster up your special entitlement fantasies in public is gonna cost you.. BIG

    Fact is, Marc & Jodie Emery almost single handedly brought the drug war to Canada. We note other cannabis people in 2009 are able to work with the government to grow for fibre and medicine just fine.,, but not you guys or the 420 pot pirates you claim to be the leaders of.

    Bill C-15 is coming into law any day as a direct response to your asinine

    Reguardless of whether that’s true or not. It’s kind of fucked up to put Marco’s shit out there like that if he hasn’t been disrespectful towards you. There’s no reason to start a fight between activists when your both working toward the same goal. If he has been disrespectful towards you then disreguard this comment.

  22. David on

    Very well said man. As an American in a state with mandatory minimums I can guarantee that Bill C-15 will lock up plenty of everyday citizens who grow for personal use while selling some of their grow. As well as those who are growing to survive the recession. It doesn’t affect the gangs here as the gangs have plenty of people to take the place of those raided at a stash house, or on the corner. Lastly as a fellow grower if you stick to rule number one there’s a rare chance you’ll get caught. Rule 1 being don’t tell anyone. Plus it’s so much more rewarding to grow for yourself, and you don’t have to spend a shit load of money yearly paying all those greedy dealers high prices for quality weed.

  23. Marc Emerly on

    nice upskirt pic :)

  24. cannabis"criminal" on

    Reviewing the comments of this thread and others in recent past, I come upon two conclusions:

    1) Cannabis supporters, of which I am one and designated “criminal” for its growth, can unfortunately let their passions take hold and respond to criticism with ranting and unsubstantiated accusations towards societal institutions. Even when they are correct it doesn’t further the cause to come off as a lunatic…after all, that’s what our foes accuse us all of, and most of us aren’t.

    2) The more people that show up and use vitriolic language to castigate the Emery’s and their supporters are a telling sign that society is indeed coming around, and that frustrates them so much they need to cause harm in any way possible. This is why we see people who have no interest in cannabis as regular attackers, and the likely motivation of the “he got what he deserved for daring to public challenge” crowd.

    The Canadian government has plans to create what many of us feel is an American style prison industrial political complex system and their statements regarding targeting organized crime are ludicrous when it is considered that most people imprisoned by c-15, should its evil pass by our propaganda besieged Senate, are individual gardeners who are dedicated to the safe and scientific process of responsible growth and use.

    As much as it pains people’s cynicism to state, the vote is all we have to try and fight them, outside of our very existence being civilly disobedient. Only when the passionate marijuana proponents convince politicians that their will can actually effect their chances at office will we see real change.

    Supporters and foes alike, we tend to use anonymous handles, while some have the courage to stand forward with their name and person on the line. The Emery’s have done so, and so they become a target for the haters.

    Any person that would revel in somebody else’s misery likely has many challenges in their life that lead to such anger. Their invectives can cause one to reflect, but how could they ever shake the belief of people that fight for what they think is right? People willing to risk all for a cause?

    I’m not giving up. I will grow again, and likely will go to jail for it. If I survive that experience, I will grow again. I will continue to grow until I die or am killed for it. I believe in my right to prepare marijuana as I see fit for my own use, to avoid the short-cuts and risks that uncaring profiteers make take with my health as a customer.

    Those that hate cannabis culture will have to abide, because there are millions of us, and cannabis will never die.

  27. David on

    I understand what happened, and why it happened. I don’t need it explained to me. However you forgot he also heckled the US Drug Czar John Walters. Anyways I never said I was surprised by this. I feel no pity for marc as this is what he wanted, and unless he’s housed with the gangs that he’s always talking bad about he should be fine. Although I do feel bad for Jodie. She just lost her husband for the next five years. Was with him everyday, and now only gets to see him once a week until he’s extradited. While also having double, or triple the responsabilities to take care of while he’s away. I can imagine anyone in that situation being very emotional, and overwhelmed by everything all at once. Also how you can justify the breaking up of a family for the sales of a 10 pack of seeds is beyond me. If the government came out with a law tomorrow that said water is illegal would you consider everyone who drinks water a criminal? We have as much right to all of gods plants as we do the water, air, and soil. Also marc is not a criminal. He’s an outlaw. Criminals are people who go out looking to harm others. Not someone who wants to relax, and smoke a bud. While selling seeds to use the money to overturn an unjust law.

    “…After all, selling seeds is against the law, the Vancouver Police investigated Marc in 2003 (but the Crown refused to lay charges), …”
    —-wrote her majesty. Jodie Emery the former Princss of Pot

    By 2003 Marc Emery had been charged many times for drug offenses and even charged & convicted with selling seeds TWICE. Obvioulsy he wasn;t learning his lesson.

    By 2003. after so many smuggled pot seeds were found to have originated from ” Marc Emery Direct Seeds” the USA DEA approached the Vancouver Police and asked rather sternly why that seed selling repeat offender felon hadn’t been shut down? \

    We can only imagine the VPD are such girls they didn’t know and were not prepared to enforce the laws they were obliged to enforce. Selling cannabis is clearly against the law, so is money laundering.. so is exporting contraband internationally through the mails..

    So the DEA, who don;t shit from anybody made their move–petitioned the RCMP and the CDN Dept of Justice to work with them,, the USA was the injured party- and together’ thy worked to shut marc Emery down. This was completely within their rights and limits of power to do so, Working with the Canadian authorities the DEA bused him, & his criminal co conspirator properly’ fairly and honestly, The Canadian police freely shared their ample case files ( based on seizing Emerys’ computers several times ) with the American authorities — as they should and as they did

    because Emery was smuggling contraband cannabis into the USA on a regular basis – The USA has an extradition treaty with canada that was in place long before Marc Emery started his now defeated ” Overgrow the Government” campaign. Marc Emery freely admitted to deliberately breaking these laws, even flaunting the fact on his website- He’s a grown up. he knew what he was doing

    IT WAS JUST A 1-2-3 JOB TO BUST HIM
    & EXTRADITE HIM TO THE USA TO FACE TRIAL-

    Why are you surprised? Marc painted a bad boy bullseye target on his butt and wagged his ass right at the guns of the Americans,daring them to bust him.., and they did bust him.. and the Cdn Justice Minister will ship him south just like the law says he can.. Strange part is marc had already plead guilty-to all these srious drug crimes on his website-= on CBC TV- to the public, to the Canadian authorities, to the US authorities.. – there is no contest here he did it and is proud of it

    Now he lingers in jail in Vancouver and at the pleasure of the CDN Justice Minister, he will be sent in chains any day now to face an American Judge who will apply the full wight of the US law to him. Is Emery a martyr? No way he sacrificed anything for anybody–he did it all for his own gain greed and glory- and says so..

    – he’s just another Drug War Profiteer who got caught

    You make $15,000,000.00 by breaking the law – you should sort of expect to get caught and spanked,,Maybe what he didn;t expect was the Americans would spank him..Maybe he expected he would be dealing with the soft vague and uncertain Vancouver police all his life as he stacked up the cash mountain from his various illicit enterprises

    The question is… How did someone as smart as marc emery- who ran a successful criminal organization wide open surrounded by lawyers 24-7 for years on end , manage to not see that one coming?

    Why is anybody surprised that this happened ?

    Hey Jodie,

    I just wanted you to know that whats been happening to you with Marc’s extradition has really struck a nerve with me. I’ve been following your story for the last 6 months or so, and thanks to the tireless efforts of activists like Yourself, and Marc, I feel my eyes have been opened and you have inspired me to become somewhat of an activist myself! I have written to the Justice Minister several times (I know it might not help alot, but it doesnt hurt to try) contacted my MP, and plan on doing whatever I can from the “75 things you can do…” list to help out with the movement, and to try to get Marc out of jail.

    I also plan on making monetary contributions when I can to people such as Yourself and David Malmo-Levine help out with lawyer fees, etc, because I find it downright admirable that you are taking these issues to the courts. I cant even imagine the sacrifices you’ve made in order to do this.

    Lastly, I’d like to express my admiration and respect for you and Marc for doing the right thing, which is following what you truly believe in. Alot of good is going to come from what you are doing. If you were able to inspire myself and others around me, im sure thousands of others also took notice.

    Keep going Jodie!

    I apologize on behalf of my country; it is a bully and a bitter old man. Your husband is a hero and a legend in our time of need right now. I will be praying that all this will be over sooner than we all hope. If anythng they made a huge mistake putting him in jail cause it just made them look scared & weak while the Cannabis Community are more focused than ever. At the end I truely believe that this will end up biting them in ass :-)> Just please hang in there and enjoy every precious moment U have with him ’till he gets out. God Bless and take care Princess of Pot :-)>

    “…Marco Renda never beat extradition — he was never sought for extradition! That’s not “fact”! There are no other seed sellers at all who have faced extradition to the USA from Canada, not a one! And wanna-be seed seller Renda lost about $70,000 worth or marijuana seeds recently from bringing them through Customs from Amsterdam trying to start his own seed bank, but he has never been successful at anything — even Treating Yourself is run on his parents’ money….”

    Smarten the fuck up Mrs Emery- and get real for the first time in your life

    Try ” desperate”
    or maybe even “dumbass”

    Emery pleaded with the DEA to tak five years in prison because his
    ” friends” had already sang their bags off about the fine points of the seed sales operation in the DEA head offices in exchange for special treatment.. They even drove down to the USA to do it,even though the DEA had a regional office in Vancouver.- they are just the nicest people !!

    If you had friends like that you’d be a criminal

    That kind of disgusting vitriol directed at a suffering woman is the definition of cowardice. Shame on you.

    What Marco comment are you referring to?

    Jody is a very intelligent person and will keep it going far better than anyone else could.

    I think you are one mean, evil bitch and this is exactly what you wanted but you are not smart enough to keep it going, after that Marco remark I bet you don’t last 2 months. Maybe you and Marc’s junkie son can drugs together while he’s gone. I have no feeling left for you people at all, get a job and quit stealing from others!

    It certainly seems orchestrated, that B.C.’s two most vocal Cannabis-activists have been put behind bars for the Olympix (the Torch-relay originated at Hitler’s 1936 Berlin games) Free Drug-War Prisoners on Remembrance Day!

    Jodie, you are the sweetheart than will get Marc through this above all others! Unless truthful justice prevails, Marc is going to need your love more than ever. It boggles my mind how truthful, hard-working, loving people like Marc get imprisoned for a fabricated crime. There is no victim here. Marc hurt nobody!!! This crazy censoring of a God-given plant must stop. It is the ultimate invasion of our human rights! You and Marc are the best! Keep your chin up, look to the future, help Marc, and let others help you through this hard time!

    My condolences to Jody and Marc. It will seem like forever but time will pass. Keep the faith , you guys are the reason I fight here in the states. I admire you both so much.

    Hang in there Jodi…You and the cannabis community must keep trying to keep Marc in Canada were he belongs….Until then, as you are, cherish the memories that you have and continue to stand tall and make your voice heard…Free Marc Emery!..peace and Pot

    Remember this, he agreed to that plea deal to keep his friends safe from what he (and you)is going through. Generous, noble, brave,selfless, whatever word you use to describe it, he is someone I very much admire. I wish I had friends like that.

    It is heartbreaking. I’m sorry for your pain and loss.

    I’m sorry that you are devastated about Marc’s sentence, but I’m glad to hear that you have a lot of support around you to keep you going. We need you Jodie! I hope this experience helps to bring you two closer together as a couple. Also I doubt it will, but I hope things get easier for you as time goes on. Lastly thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to keep me updated on Marc’s situation, how your doing, and continuing to fight for our right to use cannabis freely during this tragic time. I wish you the best of luck with everything.
