Marijuana activist touts vision for cheap, legal pot

Marc Emery addresses a crowd at an anti-extradition rally held for him in front of the US Consulate in Vancouver, Canada, on September 10, 2005Canada’s self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Pot’ is back with a vengeance. Serving a nearly five-year sentence in a US prison has done little to shake Marc Emery’s resolve to get marijuana legalized in his home country. He, along with his pot-activist wife Jodie, vows to take on anti-cannabis conservatives in Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s government and to weed out the anti-pot constituencies in upcoming elections in 2015. “I intend to continue lobbying for the legalization of marijuana and cannabis and I’ll continue to smoke and lobby for pot,” said the grey-haired activist who returned Tuesday after serving his sentence in a US prison for selling marijuana seeds to US clients.
