If you’re celebrating 4-20 today, be sure to have a puff for Marc Emery. Recently, he had his application to be transfered to a Canadian prison denied so now he seems destined to languish for five years in a jail in Mississippi because of the “seriousness” of his crime of selling marijuana seeds on-line.
That decision came at the same time as an Ontario Supreme Court judge was ruling that existing laws prohibiting the production and possession of marijuana for medical reasons were unconstitutional. The feds, naturally, announced yesterday that they would be appealing the ruling.
Maybe some day the crypto-fascists who are pushing their oh-so-righteous War on Drugs will get real about marijuana.
