Marc Emery Marks Hopeful Halfway Point in U.S. Prison Sentence

B.C.’s self-proclaimed “prince of pot” is marking a milestone this week, as he passes the half-way point of his sentence in an American prison.

In September 2010, Marc Emery was sentenced to five years for selling marijuana seeds by mail and phone order.

He’s now serving his time at a prison in Yazoo City, Mississippi.

Emery’s wife, Jodie, says with good behaviour, he’ll qualify for early release in July of 2014.

“But if for any reason, he should lose his good time, good behaviour time, he’ll be there until early 2015.”

Last year, Emery’s supporters tried to gain the attention of the White House, with more than 9,000 signatures on an official petition.

The White House responded with a “no comment.”

    Happy to see that Marc will be coming home soon…he still needs to improve his bass playing because I can imagine the times he’ll get to play with famous bands when he gets on tour again.

    Ricky Simpson is now living in Honduras (promised help in Costa Rica was a ruse like WarBama),and he has a friend JB on FB that does his posting–we wish them well in Central America. Soon,we need to unify the hemp movement & like the psychopathic General in FULL METAL JACKET: go all in for the BIG WIN !!!
