Marc Emery earns $22.20 per month in a Mississippi jail

1 of 1 2 of 1

Marc Emery has gotten a "prison pay raise", according to a tweet from his wife Jodie.

The Prince of Pot now collects $22.20 per month as the recreation clerk, up from $18.48 per month that he previously earned.

Emery is incarcerated in Yazoo City, Mississippi after pleading guilty in a Seattle court to distributing drugs—marijuana seeds—and receiving a five-year sentence.

Emery maintains that he always paid taxes in Canada on income derived from his seed-selling business, which wasn't deemed to be worthy of criminal charges north of the border.

Canada and the U.S. are so corrupt, backward and evil. It's people so dumbed down they don't care.

Yeah right, a pardon. Then Obama will spontaneously take off from his chair and out the window, and a rainbow will follow his arc as he flies over the land, showering us all with pure MDMA. The president of the world! He shall lessen all our burdens and do justice unto all!

Hope is poison.

I support legal Pot to stop the murderous Drug Trade.

However you accept the risks as Marc did by flaunting US Laws however draconian or wrong you should be prepared to pay the price.

Advocate, protest but don't break the law unless your willing to do the time without whining about it.

He shouldn't be Punished for selling throu the mail. you wouldn't arrest a gun distributor selling a gun if its illegal in that country, you would arrest the person receiving it.

The American Gov't should keep their tentacles at home. They behave like we are a Gestapo society rather than a society based on "liberty".
