Welcome Home Marc Emery!

FreemarcWell, it’s been far too long, but Pot activist and business man Marc Emery is out of jail in the States and back in Canada. If you don’t know the story, here is an all too brief, and possibly inaccurate summary of what went on and why Marc was in jail in the U.S.: Marc had a store in Vancouver, B.C. called Hemp BC, and one of the things he happen to sell at this store was marijuana seeds. Not pot, but just the seeds. He did this for a long time with no problems, but eventually the authorities in the United States started to get interested in Marc’s business. You see, they didn’t like the fact  that this guy was selling pot seeds to people in the States. No sir, they didn’t like it at all. Who was he to provide pot seed, allowing people to grow, and then presumably consume and get high. The DEA called him a drug dealer never mind that he only sold seeds, and there isn’t enough THC in pot seeds to get an ant high. The US authorities charged Marc with conspiracy to manufacture marijuana… Now. Marc lives in Canada where  the rules are a little bit different than in the U.S. where the charges were actually laid. That should account for something, right?

Cannabis_leaf.svgNope!! When the DEA requested he be extradited to the U.S., our shitty Conservative government in Canada handed him right up. Hell, I was surprised he was delivered with a bow on.He spent the best part of 5 years in a foreign prison system for selling goddamned pot seeds.

Well, he is now out of prison back in Canada. I heard talk that he want to help drive out the Conservatives in the next Canadian Federal election, and I say good on him. I mean, they didn’t seem to do much of anything to help him and actually seemed happy to hand him over to a foreign government. Well, Marc, many of your fellow Canadians support you, the legalization of Marijuana and the ousting of this terrible Conservative government. We stand with you.

We are glad to have you back…
