The Hypocrisy Of Marc Emery's Criminal Charges

This time around, the penalties Marc faces are so high that he will finally get the jury trial he has long desired. Let's hope the jury recognizes the injustice of being asked to impose life imprisonment on a man whose only "crime" has been to openly do something the government has agreed should be legalized.

Culling Cannabis Dispensaries Exposes Trudeau's Hypocrisy

Here's my take: dispensary owners have tirelessly fought for many years for more liberalized cannabis laws. They've even racked up hefty legal bills while pleading their case to the highest court in the land. Ultimately, they've helped pave the way for the mainstreaming of medical marijuana, which has mainly benefitted "Big Business", a.k.a. LPs. So dispensaries also deserve to be accommodated when legalization finally arrives -- but with conditions.

Please Stop Arresting Marijuana Activists, For Canada's Sake

In the end, all of the charges against Marc and Jodie Emery will be dismissed. So why bother arresting them? Every second of time and every cent spent to arrest the pot power couple will lead to absolutely nothing productive, and nothing which benefits Canadians.

This Marijuana Activist Is a Hero to Me, and I Don't Smoke the Stuff

Unlike the "Prince of Pot," I don't use marijuana. I never have, and probably never will, even if it were to become legal for recreational use. Nevertheless, I have been a staunch admirer of Marc's ever since I first met him. While Marc Emery didn't do this single-handedly, there is no question that he is at least partly responsible for the fact that hundreds of thousands of people across North America now have legal access to a medication that helps relieve their pain and epileptic seizures. Margaret Wente said that Marc's no hero, but I disagree.
