‘Prince of pot’ contracts superbug in prison

Marc Emery reportedly suffering from MRSA infection contracted in Mississippi facility

by

Vancouver’s self-proclaimed “prince of pot,” Marc Emery, has been infected by a superbug known as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), according to his wife Jodie. She says Emery, who is currently serving a five-year prison term in a Mississippi facility, was diagnosed with the condition a year ago, when a boil located above his buttock tested positive for MRSA. Emery is two years into his sentence for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana via a mail-order cannabis seed operation.
