‘The Prince of Pot’ Documentary Now Available on iTunes

CANNABIS CULTURE – The Prince of Pot: The U.S. Vs Marc Emery, one of the best documentary film to explain the plight of the prominent Canadian marijuana activist, is now available through the iTunes store.

Go to the Prince of Pot preview page on iTunes.

The film, directed by Nicholas Wilson and released in 2007 in coordination with the CBC, follows the story of Vancouver cannabis seed-seller Marc Emery during his fight against extradition and imprisonment in the United States.

Emery, founder of the B.C. Marijuana Party and publisher of Cannabis Culture Magazine, spent millions in profits from his successful seed business on legalization and drug law reform activism in North America and around the world. His altruism made him a target of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, who claimed he was Canada’s biggest “drug kingpin” and admitted in an official press release that Emery was targeted for his political activism.

The movie also stars Marc’s two former co-accused, Greg Williams and Michelle Rainey, his wife Jodie Emery, and fellow cannabis activists including Kirk Tousaw, Chris Bennett, David Malmo-Levine, Alan Young and many others.

Politicians like NDP MP Libby Davies and former Vancouver Mayor Larry Campbell speak on Emery’s behalf, and criticize back-room plotting and scheming between elements within the U.S. and Canadian governments.

The film was completed before Emery was extradited and sentenced to five years in prison in the U.S.

Emery is now stationed at a federal penitentiary in Yazoo, Mississippi and must serve 994 days until he is eligible for early release.

The Prince of Pot is one of several documentary films produced about Marc Emery. Others include The Principle of Pot and Messing Up the System. Another, called Citizen Marc is currently in production and is expected to be released in 2012.

    No wonder most of the world hates Americans.
    Didn’t they invent marijuana prohibition, which is all based on lies & propaganda. They whine about human rights abuses in other countries while the are one of the worst abusers. Marc Emery is a political prisoner. Canada under Harper is not much better.
    It will be interesting to hear the conditions that will be set when he is eventually paroled.
    No drugs or involvement in politics or risk spending the rest of his life in an American gulag.
    America the land of the free. What a farce.

    Marc not only paid his taxes he even stated that they were for his seed business and the government accepted it without question for years. As for his gang that would be all the pro-legalization people in Canada and USA. You sound like an unintelligent troll. You’re right he probably won’t be able to leave Canada anymore, just like any poor innocent sucker caught smoking a joint once. It is prohibition that ruins lives, not cannabis. Obama admitted that he smoked up but never got caught. Would you throw his ass in jail?

    I know Canada has to let him back in because he’s Canadian. I was being sarcastic. It was more a shot at the overzealous nature of Harper to not let him back in. It was the Harper government that did nothing to help Marc. They may have even helped to hand him over to the DEA.

    he was born in Ontario canada ..he is a Canadian citizen. he will def be deported from the USA in chains when his sentence is up, and sent under guard back to canada. By law canada has to accept him. canada has to accept Canadians back no matter how much they fucked up, esp if they owe the taxman big cash still.
    But marc will probably will never be allowed to leave canada to travel to any other country for the rest of his life. Thats OK Canada is a big place. Him and Jodie can start a new gang when he gets out.

    Marc might be safer in an American jail than Canadians with the Harper government bringing in this omnibus bill. I wonder if when Marc’s sentence is up and he is extradited back to Canada if the Harper government will even let him back into the country.

    I just checked the link and ironically it is not available on the Canadian iTunes site, only the American iTunes site. Ironic because he is a Canadian prosecuted and incarcerated by the Americans even though he never stepped foot in the USA.
