Marc Emery’s supporters lit joints and used pot vaporizers as they waited outside Windsor City Hall for him to cross back into Canada from Detroit Tuesday afternoon.
“I’m glad to see I’ve got friends,” Emery said shortly after 4 p.m. to the cheering crowd of dozens. “It’s really touching, actually.”
Emery was extradited to Seattle in 2010 where he pleaded guilty to selling marijuana seeds to American customers. The 56-year-old London, Ont., native was sentenced to five years in prison in September 2010.
In front of cameras and microphones, Emery talked about his experience with the “polite” people in prison.
“I feel good now, I did good things with my time,” he said. “I learned to become a bassist in a rock-and-roll band.”
At 4:20 p.m., a time and number associated with marijuana use, the crowd briefly became rowdy, drowning Emery out as he began to talk politics.
