Marc Emery, the Prince of PotMarc Emery, the Prince of PotThis incredible movie, Part 2 of “The Principle of Pot”, is about Marc’s marijuana freedom-fighting career and Canada’s cannabis legalization battle. It uses tons of media, interviews, and old news footage to document the story of MARC EMERY and how CANADA almost legalized cannabis! MUST-SEE!

Watch it tonight, and learn all about how:

– Marc came to Vancouver in 1994, kick-started Canada’s marijuana movement, and became world-famous as the PRINCE OF POT

– Cannabis was almost LEGAL in Canada in 2003 with help from Marc’s efforts and money, “Summer of Legalization” tour, and more

– Marc funded the marijuana movement in Canada and the USA with millions in marijuana seed money for a decade

– The USA stopped legalization from happening in Canada in 2003, and the Vancouver Police were behind the US extradition request in 2005 after Canada refused to charge him in 2003

– Marc went to prison in September 2009, but is currently free on bail awaiting the Justice Minister’s decision on extradition

– The Conservative Party of Canada is “tough on crime” and “anti-drugs” but also in a difficult position: should they extradite Marc Emery to the USA, potentially violating law and enraging millions of people, or should they keep him in Canada?

    marc you are a genious! while i dont agree with everything about choice because when should someone be given the freedom to choose? at what age is a child truly responsible for their own actions? some people who are 30 are still doing mistakes that children aught to know better than to do. someone has to be out to look after these people too. and if you think that the country is mosty smart people who know whats best for themselves you are sadly mistaken. however i love the documentary and you are one of my heros. i wish you only the best my friend.

    Quite a sophisticated and sustained argument concluding that the government’s only option to “beat” Emery is to NOT extradite him. In other words, if they extradite him they are playing right into his strategy and will give him what he wants — namely, a lessening of respect for government and a shift towards anarchism through his martyrdom.

    Well worth a watch for the background information alone but the argument that runs throughout is the real tasty morsel.
