With Emery facing extradition to the U.S. for selling seeds, Chong has been wearing a Free Marc Emery t-shirt on TV shows and offers these words of advice to his home country.:

Hey Canada – smarten up, eh! You’re letting the U.S. government take a Canadian citizen from Canada and put him in jail for marijuana seeds. Come on, eh! How can you be so stupid? How can you roll over and let the former U.S. president plunk you in the butt without a fight? The current U.S. president sees nothing wrong with medical marijuana, so why are you so ready to give up one of your own citizens for selling seeds? Marc Emery did not break any Canadian laws. Selling marijuana seeds is not a crime, no matter what anyone says. You’re giving up a Canadian citizen simply because some of you don’t agree with his philosophy – now that’s a crime.

I was put in jail for “shipping a bong across state lines” by the Bush criminals, so I know what Marc is going through right now. Smarten up Canadians and protect your own. Don’t act like Bush. Show some independence. Show some Canadian balls! Don’t bend over just because Uncle Sam tells you to. Act like Canada is separate from the States. Don’t let them take Marc. Free Marc Emery!
