Marc Emery’s Reefer Revenge Just Might Work

“Revenge!” Now there’s an anguished utterance you normally expect only to hear in bad Shakespeare parodies. Not last week, however, when Marc Emery, Canada’s so-called Prince of Pot, dropped the R-bomb on no less than the government itself.

Speaking to CBC Radio from a private deportation facility (whatever the heck that is) in anticipation of finally being released from the U.S. prison system, Emery said: “My own government betrayed me and I’m going to wreak an appropriate amount of political revenge when I get home and campaign against the Conservative government.”

Emery served nearly five years for the crime of selling seeds, “chained and shackled every inch of the way,” and, obviously, he isn’t about to forgive and forget. But this is no routine — and therefore hollow — act of fist-shaking by a jailbird.

His threat is anything but empty.

Emery is now poised to re-enter his chosen life’s work of cannabis activism in the most significant way possible, by threatening to turn the next federal election into a single-issue referendum on legalizing cannabis. He and his many supporters are planning to campaign for the Liberals and will thus hold Justin Trudeau’s feet to the fire regarding his pledge to end the legal morass that is cannabis prohibition.

Emery’s team already has 30 rallies planned across the country, surely with many more to come. His plan is to energize young voters on what will be framed as a civil-rights cause, irrespective of their personal relationship to cannabis. The hand-wringers in Ottawa don’t know what to make of it.
