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

Karen Selick | Posted 10.14.2014 | Canada Politics
Karen Selick

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.

The Truth About Toking With Justin Trudeau

Marc Emery | Posted 10.24.2013 | Canada Politics
Marc Emery

There's a video of me speaking at Toronto's Vapor Central in 2009 where I say Justin Trudeau and I have smoked pot together four or five times. I meant that I have only smoked pot on one occasion with Trudeau and four or five times that one evening. But I didn't lie; I meant to reference that Trudeau has smoked pot. I witnessed it in 2003. However, that was then, and this is now. Today, as Liberal Party leader he is doing a terrific job on the issue of marijuana and its legal status. He is advocating the clearest, most rational policy -- legalization -- that I can imagine a Canadian leader putting forth.
