‘Prince of Pot’ gets extradition order

Federal justice minister orders Marc Emery to be surrendered to American authorities


After a five-year battle to avoid this very conclusion, Marc Emery or Canada’s “Prince of Pot” has been ordered extradited to the U.S., where he was charged in 2005 in connection with his Vancouver-based seed-selling business. “I imagine there’s some paperwork that needs to be shuffled and arrangements that need to be made. My anticipation would be (Emery would be sent to the U.S.) relatively soon, within the week possibly,” lawyer Kirk Tousaw told the Toronto Star. Emery has been out on bail since last fall, when he was released from custody while the federal justice minister made his decision.

  1. Marc Emery would smile at the Tuesday protest of Conservative MP James Moores' Port Moody office. What a terrific sensible move and protest it was for that proper group to behave as they did rolling lots of marijuana joints on the desk of James Moore. The Police arrived of course but the Crown told them to leave the pot smokers alone and the police left. Great ten minute video. Thank God the future can lead itself. A future that won't accept being hunted. Rolling legal medical marijuana on the desk of your Member of Parliament is clearly upheld by the Canadian Supreme Court. The megaphone is because some of the Conservatives have too much wax in their ears – like Custer. The ruling is by Mdm. Justice Claire L'Heureux-Dube. It is correctly upheld that the court house (not including the judges chambers) including an MP's office, airport, train station or anywhere else that the public may normally pass is a public place. Thus one may demonstrate,speak, protest, hand out leaflets without prior approval, taxation or license. Roll one up if you love The Crown more than you love the gang of four. Use your bare hands and the alphabet. The door is open. We saw the proof. You know what they say, “A proof is a proof when you have the proof and that is the proof.”
