Canada’s flamboyant Prince of Pot has been sentenced in a U.S. court to five years in prison for being one of the largest marijuana seed suppliers in America. The key word here being largest: had no idea he had that distinction. U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan told the court Marc Emery made millions of dollars by shipping seeds into the United States and now he’s paying the price for being part of the illegal drug trade.
When U.S. District Court Judge Ricardo Martinez sentenced Emery in Seattle on Friday, he told him there was no question his actions were criminal and that Emery ensured others broke the law by selling them the seeds. umm yea …. dont you think that the U.S government should be prosecuting people who break the law in their own country rather than marc emery …
Emery was indicted in 2005, but it wasn’t until May of this year that he was extradited from Canada and left for Washington State after a plea agreement. She said right after court adjourned on Friday, his lawyer went to the Canadian consulate in Seattle to submit the paperwork to have Emery transferred back to Canada to serve his sentence here. hopefully he’ll be allowed to carry out his sentence in canada ….
The court noted that Emery claimed on his website to have made about $3 million a year for selling about four million seeds over the years from his Vancouver headquarters. that’s a lotta dough for sellin dope ….

WOW….I couldn’t believe when i read this piece of news recently … read on
A man plans to file a human-rights complaint against an amusement park after security guards told him to cover up his Bob Marley T-shirt or leave the premises. But Montreal’s La Ronde insists it didn’t have a problem with the shirt’s portrait of the late reggae legend — just the cluster of green, marijuana-shaped leaves that surround it. He says security staff singled him out because they associated a black man wearing a Marley shirt with something criminal.
“The onus is on Six Flags to explain to me, the Marley family, fans of Bob Marley around the world, how this T-shirt is deemed ‘inappropriate’ to ordinary families,” Moise said in a statement. But a spokesman for La Ronde indicates that only the pictures of pot leaves on the shirt were considered offensive under the Six Flags’ corporate-wide dress code. “It’s not the image of Bob Marley that’s in question here,” Martin Roy said Wednesday. “It’s the dozens of marijuana leaves on the shirt that were judged by the employees as not family friendly.”
No that is not a typo …. Law personnel in British Columbia, CANADA came across a crop of marijuana being guarded by Bears. Apparently it is the most bizarre security system they have ever encountered.
Police regularly monitor several drug sites in the hills above Christina Lake. But a recent raid on one marijuana grow operation had an unexpected defense system. Police found at least ten bears patrolling the grounds around thousands of pot plants. The bears were fed dog food and vegetables to keep them in the area. Police say the bears were so docile the animals were actually playful as they approached.
“They were tame, they just sat around watching. At one point one of the bears climbed onto the hood of a police car, sat there for a bit and then jumped off,” said Royal Canadian Mounted Police sergeant Fred Mansveld. Two people have been arrested, and are facing charges. I wonder if Yogi Bear was one of them!!!
Poor Paris Hilton … the heiress accustomed to the handcuffs by now thanks to her DUI’s in America can’t even catch a break in crime ridden South Africa. Apparently Paris and her friend, former Playmate of the Year Jennifer Rovero were outside the Nelson Mandela Bay stadium following the Brazil-Netherlands qarterfinal game when local cops smelled marijuana. Upon approaching Paris & Jennifer, it is alleged that a spliff was suspiciously dropped to the ground[smart thinking!!!] but they were taken into custody nonetheless. Paris Hilton is a celebrity and a legitimate heiress so naturally er charges were dropped after her friend Jennifer took the blame upon which the World Cup Special Court ordered Jennifer to pay $130 an leave South AFrica in 14 days. Well the Final’s are in a week so she’s good loll.
Watch what happens when an on-air reporter reports live from location
A young blonde woman was driving through the Florida Everglades while on vacation. She wanted to take home a pair of genuine alligator shoes but was very reluctant to pay the high prices the local vendors were asking.
After becoming very frustrated with the attitude of one of the shopkeepers, the young Blonde declared, “Well then, maybe I’ll just go out and catch my own alligator and get a pair of shoes for free!”
The shopkeeper said with a sly smile, “Well little lady, why don’t you go on and give it a try?”
The blonde headed off to the swamp, determined to catch an alligator.
Later in the day, as the shopkeeper is driving home, he spots the same young woman standing waist deep in the murky water, shotgun in hand.
As he brings his car to a stop, he sees a huge 9-foot gator swimming rapidly toward her.
With lightning reflexes, the Blonde takes aim, shoots the creature and hauls it up onto the slippery bank.
Nearby were 7 more dead gators, all lying belly up.
The shopkeeper stood on the bank, watching in silent amazement.
The blonde struggles mightily and manages to flip the gator onto its back.
Rolling her eyes heavenward, she screams in frustration,
“DAMN IT this one is barefoot too!!

Yesterday, May 11 marked the 19th death anniversary of internationally known legendary reggae singer Bob Marley. He passed away due to cancer on May 11, 1981. May his soul rest in peace. Apart from making good music, he was an advocate of marijuana and spoke at great lengths to help legalize marijuana in the western hemisphere. Below is an excerpt from an interview ….
You couldn’t make this up even if you wanted to … This happened in Toronto, Canada during the Pot Rally. A participant at the rally decided it would be a great idea to climb a tree an partake in the pot rally .. perhaps cos he wanted a high(er) vision but things took a turn for the worse when mother nature decided to unleash gale force winds upon the rally. Winds gusting at about 30-50 km/hr wreaked havoc an the poor chap at the top of the tree became stuck an struggled to get down. He eventually fell down an was injured upon which the good folks of Toronto EMS took him to a nearby hospital. Moral of the story: if you wish to get high just smoke a spliff an you’ll get there …
