‘Prince of Pot’ gets extradition order

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

by

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.
