Help Bring Imprisoned Marijuana Activist Marc Emery Home To Canada

CANNABIS CULTURE – Marc Emery needs your help. The Canadian marijuana advocate, currently serving a five-year prison sentence in the US after being arrested for his political activism, has been approved by the US federal government for a transfer to serve the rest of his time in Canada.

Please help us convince the Canadian Public Safety Minister to approve the transfer and bring Marc home!

“On July 7th, the United States Department of Justice approved my transfer application,” Marc writes in his latest blog on Cannabis Culture. “Now Canada’s Minister of Public Safety has 90 days – until October 6th – to accept or reject my application.

“Despite the diminished value of returning to Canada under the 1977 bi-lateral International Transfer of Offenders Act treaty transfer, I still want to urge you to politely call the Minister’s office and constituency office, and your local MP (you can find your Member of Parliament here), and urge a swift approval to my transfer application.”

Please contact the Public Safety Minister’s office

Telephone: (613) 944-48751-800-830-3118

Letters: (postage not required within Canada)
Minister of Public Safety
House of Commons
Ottawa, ON
K1A 0A6
Canada

“Marc’s supporters can help bring him home to Canada by calling or mailing the Public Safety Minister and their local Member of Parliament,” Marc’s wife Jodie Emery told Cannabis Culture. “Please send letters and make phone calls politely asking for my husband to be transferred home.”

If approved for transfer by the Canadian government, Marc could be released as early as May 10, 2014 or as late as June 10, 2014. A transfer would also mean Marc would have parole in Canada lasting as late as August 25, 2014.

If not transferred, Marc’s US release date could be as late as October 7, 2014. Find out all the calculations in Marc’s latest CC blog.

    Free from the craphole he is stuck in, freed or released back to Canada, the Department of Justice here in the States is full of hot air. They have thrown us ALL a cookie and made some great sounding rhetorical statements which mean very little, if anything, to the federal prison system. He is in there, and it may be a huge letdown. Lawyers have all kinds of things they do to delay, hinder, slow or block, anything they are told/paid to, and are very good at the practice of sophism. I truly hope he makes it home, the sooner the better, for him and his family. As a former victim of the drug war, I hope this half a century long charade is over, as soon as POSSIBLE.

    Hey maybe that political hot shot wannabe Justin Trudeau was worth a hill of beans, perhaps he could weigh in on this.But, unfortunately I believe he’s just another in a long list of phonies.

    shame on Canada for extraditing marc to the usa in the first place. I wasn’t aware that we sent our own Canadian citizens to other countries. some political leaders we have!

    Harper has been laughing it up for 3 1/2 years at Marc and Jodie’s expense.
    Human rights are not on the agenda of our government.

    Marc should ride out his sentence in America. He will be a free man soon enough. Peace Bro!

    What a shame how we are being prosecuted and sent to jail for a plant…miracle plant at that! My heart hurts for Marc and his family, friends, and humankind that’s letting corruption and greed control us all.

    Marc Emery is a political prisoner and a victim of crimes against humanity.
    Legalize!
    Apologize!
    Compensate!
    Prosecute the perpetrators!

    He is a non-violent offender.

    Well hopefully he will be freed soon. The justice deparment is going to announce changes to the jail sentencing of drug offenders. I am hoping that this helps Mark finally be freed.
