Born in London, Ontario, Marc grew to be a committed and influential activist. Marc has fought for a number of political causes in Canada, but now he has devotes his attention to ending the cannabis prohibition. He is the founder of the BC Marijuana Party and Cannabis Culture Magazine, and he calls Vancouver home. He is a leading figure of British Columbia's cannabis scene, and is known for his non-violent activism around the world.

He has a feature length documentary called "The Prince of Pot: US v. Marc Emery" widely circulated in Canada, and he is featured in "Super High Me" with Doug Benson. "The single most important thing that has fueled the legalization of marijuana movement in the States is the Grow America movement," said Keith Stroup, founder of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, "and it would not have been possible without Marc and a few people like Marc... making high quality seeds available" In 2005, Marc was arrested for his successful seed business, a business about which Canadian authorities knew and from which they collected taxes.

They arrested him and two "co-conspirators" at the urging of the Bush Administration and the Drug Tsar John Walters, whose delicate sensibilities on marijuana Marc offended by telling the truth. Attorney General Gonzalez called him one of the fifty biggest drug kingpins, and the DEA said he was responsible for 1.1 million pounds of marijuana, or 100,000 pounds every year he was in the seed business. Marc couldn't even use the profits from his seed business for his own defense because gave it all away to the legalization movement. He has been completely transparent with his financial records, and in the process he proved what a great philanthropist he is by showing how he funded ballot initiatives, legal defenses and marijuana parties worldwide.

He is being extradited to the US for a five year prison term. FREE MARC EMERY! Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
