He’s waiting for a five year jail term. The prince of pot, is sitting tight until he’s extradited to the United States.
Since surrendering in September, Marc Emery has been waiting at the North Fraser pre-trial centre — a maximum security facility. A justice minister has to sign extradition papers to send Emery south, which still hasn’t been done.
His wife Jodie tells News1130 there’s a chance she won’t be able to see Marc once he’s in the U.S. “If a border guard wants to look up my name and see that I’ve used marijuana and I’m a marijuana activist it can refuse to allow me in the country as an ‘undesirable citizen.’ I’m sure it will be a nerve wracking time if I go to try and visit him or even when he’s being sentenced.”
Jodie says she keeps busy by working on the Free Marc campaign, running their business and possibly running for political office.
