    Lightbulb Re: Marc Emery: Timeline of a Cannabis Warrior

    What really got Marc in trouble with the US drug enforcement industry was the 5000 a plate dinner he attended with guests to listen to,and harass then drug scar William Waters.They made a real pest of themselves and,as Waters hasn't a leg to stand on when it comes down to science and real issues.Marc and friends made them(Waters and friends)look like fools.Waters had only one way to get back and being the megalomaniac he is,get back he must.So Marc asks for a transfer to serve his time in Canada.He is sent to Georgia.I know Waters is chuckling to himself thinking boy did I show him.Marc will probably do every minute of his five year sentence.He will do it well and try to make friends while he's there.I sent along a contribution to his defence fund when he was trying for the transfer.I knew it was a lost cause but what the hell?He would have done the same for me.We don't know each other.We only share a contempt for drug laws and the way they are applied.That's always been good enough for me.

    I wonder where we can find updates on Marc's status. I would expect still 2 more weeks of red tape, but it'd be cool to be able to follow the story more closely. It's not the second coming, but he IS the prince.

    He is not home yet. He has been released from prison but is in a private deportation facility waiting to return later this month.
    The process to return him to his home is frustrating and full of governmental paper work. Any time two countries are involved, the process is painfully slow.

    But he is not incarcerated and hopefully will be home soon.

    What a situation, free to go, but not allowed out! What a system. He should have never been there to begin with. Oh well, on to bigger brighter and more legal things. I am also assuming he is going to try to sue the sht out of the US Govt.

    It is my understanding he is much more upset with the Canadian Government. Here is a quote--

    "My own government betrayed me and I'm going to wreak an appropriate amount of political revenge when I get home and campaign against the Conservative government," Emery said.

    Re: Marc Emery: Timeline of a Cannabis Warrior

    What happened to wreaking havoc on the evil conservatives? Haven't heard anything about him since he was released. Did he give up?
    What happens to stories of making leagalization an election issue?

    I pled guilty to 10-life and got 14.5. Did 6 and had 8.5 years supervised release.

    Emery was selling F2s as F1, and many in the community were less than happy with him.

    When I read about that some years back, I kind of shook my head, and thought it was a shame that the global cannabis seed industry is unregulated.

    When I later read that he threatened to narc on a customer (to the customer's local LEO) who was complaining about merchandise, I began to wonder.

    And then I stumbled upon this one day:
    Marc Emery Accused of Sexually Abusing Underage Girls – Weedly News

    It bothers me that Emory has been compared to Ben Dronkers (of Sensi Seeds, one of the forum's sponsors). Last I heard, Ben never bought competitors F₁ seeds, grew them out, then sold the resulting F₂ "children" as if they were his own F₁s. I've never even heard a rumor of him threatening to narc out an unsatisfied customer (for that matter, there have been very few unsatisfied customers in the first place). And, AfaIK, Ben is only interested in adult women.

    But Ben Dronkers has been arrested because of his cannabis activism. (But not once or even several times - he has been arrested over 80 times).

    I've seen Emery referred to as the "Prince of Pot." I wonder if he gave himself that nickname, lol? If he is the Prince of Pot... then Arjan Roskam of Greenhouse Seeds really is the King of Cannabis .

    Re: Marc Emery: Timeline of a Cannabis Warrior

    I remember this way back when. Followed it for a few years. I do agree that the USA over stepped their bounds with this. I really thought they were going overboard with it. Interesting about the dinner thing. Hard to walk the line and not step on toes. Early on they were shooting for the death penalty and using laws made for drug cartels. There are always consequences for our actions. While Mark should be commended for the good things he has done for the cannabis community. He knew the risks going in. 5 years while harsh is a hell of a lot less time then life or the death penalty.
