Marc Emery earns $22.20 per month in a Mississippi jail
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.
