Letter to the Editor – Saturday December 12, 2009 – Marc Emery – Brian Johnson

Dear Editor

This is truly an unjust world when you can go to prison for life, for sending seeds to another country; but if you send troops, you get a Noble Peace Prize.

Do we really need a foreign government stepping in and disciplining one of our citizens, for something as trivial as selling seeds on the internet?

As a nation we should be ashamed of the way we have treated Marc Emery. The man has paid his taxes, given to charity, and helped untold thousands of medical marijuana users.

It disgusts me the lack of attention the media is giving this issue. The US is trying to take one of our citizens! He broke no Canadian laws! Marc Emery is facing a life sentence in a US facility, hopefully not Guantanamo Bay.

Honestly, has handing people over to foreign powers really been working for us lately?

Please take the time to contact the Justice Minister of Canada, Rob Nicholson at NichoR@parl.gc.ca and Prime Minister Harper atHarpeS@parl.gc.ca and let then know it is wrong to allow the US to extradite Marc Emery.
We must stop this extradition! Who’s next?

To all those that recognize this injustice and unfairness in Canadian law and enforcement, I have sent a copy of the following observation (previously submitted to the Cornwall Free News), along with a request that the Canadian government stay extradition and/or associated proceedings, and desist from similarly unequal and arbitrary measures against Canadian citizens (and the communication bearing my real name). ——————————————————————– ——————————————————————– On the 20th of April, at 4:20 in the afternoon, a cloud of marijuana smoke rose from the lawn of Parliament Hill, hovered and built for a few moments, then rolled lazily down Wellington Street. No deaths,… Read more »

The one fundamental thing we must NEVER forget is that when you break the law IN ANOTHER COUNTRY you are subject to their present laws at that time! If he sold illegal things into the USA then he must face the consequences, THEIR CONSEQUENCES!
He may be Canadian but he’s just another money-grubbing DRUG DEALER!

You know whats even dumber about the whole situation, here the USA is relaxing their laws because they realize their 30+ year war on drugs was a completely failed initiative. And now we have the Harperites trying to adopt regressive laws like Bill C-15. Of which even the USA advised against doing. But stupid is as stupid does. These laws are only going to drive things more underground. In many aspects they will only fuel black market crime even more. People who shouldn’t be in jail will end up in jail, and then most likely become hardened criminals when they… Read more »

Ignorance is key here. And fear. And maybe politics. And um, there’s probably brewers or distillers that wouldn’t want competition. Yeah that’s it, and there was something else but whatever. (And what’s with calling a guy that sells seeds a “drug dealer” …this guy’s putting dealers out of business). But back to ignornace… marijuana is regularly referred to as a gateway drug. It should more appropriately be recognized that it’s the dealer that is the gateway to danger. If that dealer is a drug addict, or biker, or pimp, there’s going to be some pressure put on the buyer to… Read more »

If you follow the money, you can usually figure out why governments like Canada do what they do. States like California are looking at legalization and government control of marijuana production and sales. Why? Because the state is bankrupt and they recognize a cash cow when they see one. It makes a total farce of the U.S. marijuana laws for the past 40 years since it was never about the so-called dangers of the substance, it was about the huge profits from trafficking. And don’t forget that the CIA uses drug profits for its operations(off the books) for years. I… Read more »

I would NEVER want seeds from Monsanto. We get enough genetically modified crap as it is. Don’t need them getting their dirty hands on it all. And yes, some may grow their own, but I’m pretty sure not all are into doing it on their own. But it will be better regulated anyways if it was decriminalized or legalized, and taxed afterwards. I mean, you could say the same thing about tobacco. Right now the government probably isn’t collecting a whole hell of a lot on that with all the smuggling going on. If they dropped the taxes, then they’d… Read more »
