My husband Marc Emery goes to jail…

I don’t know how many of you watch our YouTube videos or Pot-TV, but I want to share this 24-minute video of the morning Marc surrendered into custody (September 28th, Monday). I use a phrase that will be heard more often as I campaign for the release of my husband (and all pot prisoners) — “I am a Drug War Widow”.

(There are also numerous media clips from Global, CBC, CTV, etc. on YouTube if you want to see the media’s perspective; just search for “Marc Emery” and arrange by “newest” to get the latest additions.)

I appeared that same day on live TV across Canada, both CBC and CTV, to discuss what happened and how I feel about my husband being sent to a foreign country for harmless activities done in Canada…

CTV National News:

On Friday, Global TV did an excellent, in-depth and truly fair segment about Marc when they interviewed him from jail.

On Saturday (yesterday) we had our prison protest, the start of a constant vigil outside the jail where Marc is being held. Global came out again and covered it for the evening news.

Keep up to date on what’s happening at — and please, write Marc letters! The address and rules are listed at the FREE MARC EMERY page on (which is the page, soon to become a full website in itself).

Regards and thanks for the support,

Jodie Emery
