3 MPs work to block pot activist Marc Emery's extradition

Marijuana activist Marc Emery's battle to avoid going to a U.S. prison got a boost Monday in the House of Commons.

Three MPs — Libby Davies of the New Democratic Party, Ujjal Dosanjh of the Liberals and Scott Reid of the Conservatives — presented a petition asking Justice Minister Rob Nicholson not to sign extradition papers that would send Emery south to serve a five-year sentence for selling marijuana seeds online in 2005.

More than 12,000 Canadians signed the petition.

It`s just crazy that there would even be any consideration of allowing him to face 5 years or up to LIFE for some seeds. WTF?

And what is with Canadian cops arresting people on behalf of the American "drug war"

Heeeeeere's Iggy, yesterday :

"If I had to tell you as a parent or as someone who has spent his whole life working with young people, the last darn thing I want you to be doing is smoking marijuana," the federal Liberal leader said.

"I want you to be out there digging a well, digging a ditch, getting a job, raising a family ... doing stuff, instead of parking your life on the end of a marijuana cigarette."

Digging a well? Digging a ditch? Gee thanks, Dad.

Quote
Noting he likes an occasional drink and having a good time, Ignatieff didn't seem concerned if his anti-weed stance made him appear conservative.

"Given the things we need to do together, that's what I think," he said, adding that legalizing marijuana would create problems in dealings with the U.S. because the drug would remain illegal there.


Except of course for the one quarter of US states which have since decriminalized it.
Do you think Iggy owns any Nancy Reagan memorabilia?


ETA Here's the three MPs statements re Emery in the HoC yesterday. Just above 1545 under Justice.

Here's a mental exercise for you: try and imagine Michael Ignatieff stoned.

pogge, I do not find that difficult at all. The guy always sounds to me as though he is losing contact with Mother Earth and is 'way out there in space anyway, "thinking thoughts." Ground control to Iggy? Ground control to Iggy?

Emery pleaded guilty in Seattle yesterday; sentencing 27 August on a plea deal that gives him five years; after that he'll try to serve out the term in Canada.

Add this to Rob Nicholson's shame list. Via Hill Queeries

So now we'll see how quickly the new Public Safety Minister moves on that.
