Please Stop Arresting Marijuana Activists, For Canada’s Sake

Last week police arrested Marc Emery for the 30th time.

It is believed this is the first time he’s been arrested since police in Montreal picked him up in December, but it’s tough to keep track. Police also raided Cannabis Culture dispensaries owned by him and his partner Jodie in Toronto, Vancouver and Hamilton. Emery faces 15 charges relating to distributing marijuana, and Jodie Emery has been charged with five such offences.

The federal government plans on introducing legislation later this year which will legalize the sale and distribution of non-medicinal marijuana. Despite this the police just can’t stop themselves from arresting Marc Emery. By the time these charges go to court the laws literally won’t exist anymore.
