Jodie Emery is readying for her bi-weekly trip to Yazoo City, Mississippi, to visit her husband, one-time mayoral candidate, would-be premier and full-time marijuana activist, Marc.
She’ll get up Friday at 3:30 a.m. to ensure she’s at the airport two hours early for her 7 a.m. flight to Houston.
The reason is simple: Sometimes U.S. Customs detains her for extra questioning.
After the five-hour flight to Texas, she’ll wait another hour or so before grabbing a plane to Jackson, Miss.
She won’t get to Yazoo until after dark; it’ll be midnight before she gets to bed.
Jodie will be up before dawn to be at the medium security Federal Correctional Institution where she will be searched before being allowed to spend six hours in a common visiting hall with her husband.
