Marc Emery, the renowned pot provocateur, was arrested in Halifax earlier today. Rumours are circulating (courtesy of the CBC) that Emery was arrested on orders from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, and that he will be facing extradition for selling pot seeds from Canada.
Emery is the publisher of Cannabis Culture magazine, runs Pot-TV, and is the proprietor of EmerySeeds.com. He is currently scheduled to attend and speak at the Liberty Summer Seminar, but it looks like, once more, prison will keep him from talking about liberty.
Last year, after the Seminar, Marni Soupcoff (who spoke last year, and will be at the Seminar again this year) convinced her National Post colleagues to sport the Free Marc t-shirts you see in the photo. That's Paul Russell, Adam Radwanski, John Geiger, and Marni Soupcoff from left to right.
