Marijuana activist Marc Emery is free and back on Canadian soil
Marc Emery has crossed the border and returned to Canada.
After five years incarcerated in the United States for selling marijuana seeds, the Vancouver-based Prince of Pot is a free man.
Shortly after 1 p.m. PST, Jodie Emery published a photograph of her husband walking on Canadian soil (above).
The Emerys are in Windsor, Ontario, today (August 12), where Marc entered Canada after he was released from the custody of U.S. immigration.
He immediately used waiting microphones to resume his work as a political activist.
“Canadian politicians are the most gutless group of people I have ever seen,” Marc said at a press conference. “They don’t want to bring up marijuana. They are afraid of it. After 45 years, really, they’re still afraid of it? Is this what we’ve got?...We are going to have to reclaim our democracy and get marijuana legalized next election.”
