Help Keep Marc Emery in Canada

In less than a month the Canadian Justice Minister Rob Nicholson will sign the extradition order handing Marc Emery over to American authorities to serve a 5 year prison sentence for selling marijuana seeds….in Canada. There isn’t much time to try and stop this egregious miscarriage of justice. Do your part.

1) Please call the Canadian Minister of Justice, Rob Nicholson, and (politely) tell him that you and thousands of other Americans are opposed to Marc Emery’s extradition to the USA.

2) Contact the Canadian Minister of Public Safety, Peter Van Loan, and tell him that if Marc Emery applies for a prison transfer from the USA to Canada, that the Minister should approve it right away. Feel free to describe the conditions in US prisons.

Another very important thing you can do is write Marc Emery directly while he is awaiting transfer to the US. Please don’t write him sad, sobbing, depressing letters. Those do not help his morale. Write him letters telling him what things you are doing to carry on his important work in legalizing marijuana and ending the horrors of the drug war.

Here’s Marc’s address

    Dear sir,

    I was quite disappointed to learn that the Government of Canada agreed to arrest and detain a Canadian citizen, Marc Emery, at the request of the American government’s agency DEA over an offense that was not committed on American soil. This sets a very dangerous precedent in against Canadian law and sovereignty, therefore should be stopped immediately for several reasons.

    First, the offense Mr. Emery is being charged with is not a crime in Canada.

    Secondly, If it is a crime in the United States and his sentence is carried forth, the the Government of Canada is an accomplice and gained revenues from these crimes knowingly through Mr. Emery’s income taxes.

    Third, the extradition of Mr. Emery means that any Canadian citizen, including Her Excellency, the Governor General MIchaelle Jean herself should be held accountable for acquiescing during the 11 years that Mr. Emery raised millions of dollars contributinig to Canada’s political process and various charities.

    My question to you, sir, is this. How can anyone in Canada be charged for something, that for which they paid Federal income taxes?


    Use this and vary it so they don’t bunch it up as a form letter.

    Hello to you all from England, UK.

    I think that all the proceedings that Marc Emery is facing, put pure and simple. Is morally wrong!

    As an outsider looking in,this is, bureaucracy, at it’s most evil. Mr Marc Emery did not break Canadian law, as I understand it? Admittedly the persons whom Marc Emery was in communication with in the US, may of infringed an American law, but he himself did not! For his person was not on American Soil! Thus in my opinion the Canadian government’s priority should be to defend the rights of it’s citizens that are adhering to Canadian law.

    The Americans, in my opinion might have had an argument if he had physically taken the seeds to the US, but he didn’t!

    I just hope that someone in the Canadian Government, will realise that even in America, the legal bodies are in conflict.

    You have medicinal marijuana permitted, in some US States under State law. Yet Federally this is a violation, and action is taken against US citizens, that are not breaking their own State law!

    Now the real hypocrisy is that there’s a handful of people that the Federal Government it’s self, does prescribe medical marijuana to!

    So someone in the Canadian government should have the foresight and understanding to realise that:

    If the Americans cannot look after their own back yard without legal bodies being in conflict, over medical marijuana. Then surely the extradition request is NOT on solid ground!!

    Hopefully the end result being that the Canadian government will realise that is wrong, to send one, of their citizens, to be judged by a country where evidence, exists of conflict in it’s own legal bodies, with reference to medical marijuana. Thus making any judgement unsafe!

    How can an extradition request, from the Americans, in these circumstances be valid?

    If Canada does send Marc Emery to answer, to the Americans? Then my respect for Canada’s judicial bodies, will be really challenged!

    But then, what do I know? Just wanted to voice my opinion on a travesty! Mark J

    I’ve wrote a note for myself under the address: “Tell him you’ll be CC’ing his next address in each prison letter addressed to the above.” Just in case he is transferred while the letter mails. I would suggest other people sending to this address re-send their letters to the next address posted (the American prison, if he goes there) with such a footnote. Would you rather he read something twice, or never? Otherwise, hopefully, the 2nd copy reminds him you were thinking twice as much about him in the first place. Just don’t tell yourself it’ll disappoint him, and instead make sure it gets to him – twice if it has to. Remember that the letter may take too long the first time.
