Marc Emery headed for U.S. prison

Famed “Prince of Pot” activist will serve five-year term

by

Famous marijuana activist Marc Emery is on his way to the U.S. to serve a five-year prison term after selling marijuana seeds by post to American customers, the CBC reports. According to his wife Jodie, Emery was driven from a Vancouver jail to the U.S. border and handed over to authorities. A rally is planned in protest, she said. Emery was arrested in 2005 for allegedly selling seeds over the Internet to U.S. residents, and made an agreement with American prosecutors last year that he’d plead guilty to one charge of drug distribution for a five-year sentence.
