Welcome Home Marc Emery!

15 08 2014

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…

21 03 2014

An interesting article at the globalpost.com discussing the feasibility of Uruguay importing marijuana from legal growers in Canada. The article does point out that while it may not be practical now for both financial and legal reasons, marijuana trade between nations could be a thing at some time. Read the article yourself at the link below.

Marc Emery, Canada’s “Prince of Pot” is On His Way Back To Canada

11 07 2013

FreemarcPot activist, Marc Emery, currently serving time in a California prison for distribution of pot seeds has got the okay to serve the rest of his sentence in a Canadian jail.

Marc was extradited to California where he was up on charges related to his Canadian based business of selling pot seeds. Funny thing is, I think he might have had less issues if he were selling illegal weapons (that’s a joke – I have no evidence of one carrying a higher penalty than the other).

This is good news for Marc who, in my opinion, should never have been extradited to the U.S. in the first place.

Hansel and Gretel Get Baked (2013)–From Out of Nowhere Comes a Surprisingly Entertaining Retold Tale

2 07 2013

You folks know what’s fun? Getting high and watching a funny movie – well, here’s on for you all!

HGBakedWell, I have to say that when this movie popped up on the list of titles that Netflix recommends me to watch, I wasn’t very enthusiastic about it. Then yesterday afternoon I received an email from a reader of the blog strongly suggesting that I watch it, saying that they were surprised at just how fun the movie was. Grudgingly, I decided to watch it for myself – And I am glad I did.

Hansel and Gretel Get Baked (HGGB) is a 2013 release that I am guessing was released to ride on what could have been the wave of a bigger budget Hansel and Gretel movie that seems to have actually fizzled – that’s okay though, as this movie is fun in it’s own right.

HGGB tells the modernized tale of a brother and sister duo, Hansel and Gretel, who go off on a quest to save Gretel’s stoner boyfriend who disappeared after going to get some more killer “Black Forrest” pot from a little old lady who has gained notoriety from the incredible quality of the weed she is selling. Turns out the little old lady, Agnes (and played quite well by Lara Flynn Boyle), is actually a Witch that uses the weed to lure teens to her home where she capture a select few to harvest their youthful essence, restoring her youth, and also uses their bodies as mulch to help produce the high quality pot.

The movie was much better than I expected with good production quality, plenty of gore and half decent acting – way more than I would expect from something with a title like this. I have to say I was actually pleasantly surprised at just how good this movie really is. Sure, it’s pot humour, but it’s also a horror and a comedy – watch this one folks!

Here’s the trailer:





A Few Highlights From 4:20 in Edmonton, Alberta

Okay… The weather was terrible and we only stayed for a few minutes. Sorry folks, but it felt like the planet was trying to kill us.

Here are the few shots we got:





4:20 is Coming–How Are You Going to Celebrate?

27 01 2012

Hey folks!

So, once again April 20th (aka 4:20)2011-04-20 16.08.20 is soon approaching and I was wondering what , if anything, you folks are going to do to to celebrate the day. As I did last year, I’ll be attending the 4:20 rally in Edmonton, Alberta and will document the adventure here through photos and video. What I thought might be cool is if we fellow Pot Bloggers wanted to contribute to a central page where we could possibly stream live video (you know, like JustinTV or Qik video streaming services) of the celebrations in our areas.

Just one idea, but I like it. I would really like to here from you folks, though. Let me know what you are planning on doing – and I hope you share some pictures or videos of the action.

Until next time!
