Przesladowania polityczne aktywistow na rzecz legalizacji marihuany za rzadow Czerwonych Torysow, tzw. Konserwatystow, a w rzeczywistosci socjalistow o inklinacji narodowej trwaja. Ciekawe czy Kanadyjczycy sie w koncu obudza z tego niewolniczego letargu. Ale wyglada na to, ze juz sie obudzili, ale z reka w nocniku. O suwerennosci, niezaleznosci, prawach i swobodach obywatelskich, to moga sobie tylko posnic.
Pot Prince surrenders
A five-year battle by Canada's self-styled "Prince of Pot" to avoid extradition to the United States on drug charges appeared to be over yesterday.
The federal justice minister has ordered Marc Emery surrendered to American authorities, the final step in the legal process.
Emery, who was charged in the U.S. in 2005 in connection with his Vancouver-based seed-selling business, had turned himself in to sheriffs earlier in the morning to await the federal justice minister's decision. Within an hour, his lawyer received an answer.
"The justice minister has surrendered Mr. Emery for extradition," lawyer Kirk Tousaw said. "My anticipation would be (Emery would be sent to the U.S.) relatively soon, within the week possibly."
Emery has been out on bail since last fall, when he was released from custody while the federal justice minister made his decision. He made a plea deal with U.S. prosecutors last year, agreeing to plead guilty in return for a five-year prison sentence.
Earlier in the day, Emery told reporters he's spent his life advocating for the legalization of marijuana. Then he walked into the B.C. Supreme Court building and presented himself to sheriffs.
American prosecutors allege he has sold about four million marijuana seeds through his magazine and website, and that 75 per cent of those went to customers in the U.S.
If extradited to the United States, Emery hopes he will be allowed to return to Canada to serve out his jail sentence.
