Marc Emery’s First Radio Interview From US Prison

POT TV – On Sunday, November 18, Marc Emery was interviewed for the first time from US federal prison by Roy Green, host of the cross-Canada Corus radio network’s “The Roy Green Show”. Marc’s wife Jodie was interviewed before Marc called from Yazoo City medium security prison in Mississippi. Listen to the entire interview here.

From The Roy Green Show: “Prince of Pot, Marc Emery on Sunday’s show! Marc Emery will be giving his first live media interview to me on Sunday since being extradited to the U.S. to serve his five year prison sentence for distribution of marijuana seeds to U.S. customers.

“I’ll begin the hour speaking with Jodie Emery, Marc’s wife, then Marc joins us and after my conversation with him (prison authorities allow a maximum of 15 minutes), Jodie will be back on the show. We’ll open the phone lines and include this question which I have also posted on Twitter.

“Should President Obama pardon Marc Emery now that public health officials, former law-enforcement officers and the U.S. prosecutor who handled Marc Emery’s prosecution for Washington all agree the so-called war on drugs has failed and that the marijuana prohibition is a particular failure? Let’s not forget that the electorate of the State of Washington voted to legalize marijuana sales and consumption in a special vote (Initiative) on the night Barack Obama won his second term as President of the United States.

“So….. should U.S. President Barack Obama pardon and release Marc Emery from custody?”
