Marc Emery’s Farewell Tour, Summer 2009

CANNABIS CULTURE – The Prince of Pot Marc Emery took a final tour across Canada before going to prison in BC to await extradition to the United States for selling marijuana seeds online. Go to www.NoExtradition.net for information about his fight against extradition and his chances of going to prison in the USA.

Marc and Jodie embarked on a tour of Canada beginning July 5th in Calgary, Alberta and ending September 4th in Rolla, BC. Their cost was $500 per city for airfare and a hotel room. Marc spoke at indoor and outdoors venues, including parks, city squares, libraries, community halls, hemp stores, Legions, universities and even on the street. His speech was typically 2 to 3 hours plus questions and one-on-one time for photos and autographs.
