Sudbury, Ontario

Rally calls for pro-pot advocate to be released

About 40 pot smokers and their supporters gathered at Memorial Park in Sudbury on Saturday afternoon as part of a day of protest across the globe in support of Marc Emery — Canada’s so-called Prince of Pot.

“I’m really happy everyone came out today,” said Kayla Guse, one of the organizers of the Sudbury rally. “It’s to create awareness about what happened with Marc Emery and his extradition and pretty much to show the government that we are not going to sit around and do nothing.”

Rallies to support Emery were held in more than 100 locations in 11 countries on Saturday.

Emery, a Vancouver-based promarijuana activist, was extradited to the United States on Thursday after Justice Minister Rob Nicholson gave the green light. He sold seeds over the Internet to people in the U.S.

He faces five years in jail in exchange for pleading guilty. Canadian authorities have known about Emery’s seed-selling business for a long time and have, for the most part, ignored it.
