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 ….

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.”
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.
I really cannot think of anything creative to go along with these amazing high pics of the simpsons… But my fav character has to be Barney Gumble. He kinda reminds me of a friend I got who used to be big and a useless drunk until he got his pilots license like Barney. So now I end this not high-larious post with some pics of some high simpson characters!
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!!
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 …
The self-anointed “Special One” a.k.a. Jose Mourinho, currently of Inter Milan is taking his team to the pinnacle of club futbol success once again. Inter Milan are the clear favorites to advance to the Finals of the Champions League after humbling current holders Barcelona 3-1 in the first leg. I have always stated that should Inter Milan go on to win this tie over Barcelona, then it has to be credited to Jose MOurinho and his tactics. Players just seem to listen to him, except perhaps Mario Balotelli, the volatile forward who threw his jersey in disgust after the final whistle an who was later attacked in the tunnel by his own teammate Marco Materazzi. Yes the same Materazzi who is forever posterized as the victim of Zinedine Zidane’s head-butt during the World Cup Finals, wow what a small world. Well the second leg is to be played in Camp Nou, the majestical Barcelona stadium that holds 98,000 people. Knowing Jose MOurinho, he will opt to go with a three man attacking line in a 4-3-3 formation with Wesley Sneijder pulling the strings in the heart of the midfield that will keep Barcelona on edge throughout becuase they not only have to claw back the deficit but also ensure that Intre do not score.
In the other semi final featuring German Engineering i.e. Bayern Munich an French Club Olympic Lyonnais …. Bayern take a 1-0 lead to France an hope to progress through …. This game was a timid affair until Bayern went a man down as their star player Franck Ribery saw red within 35 minutes. However the game evened out as Lyon then saw their own player sent off for two yellow card offences. The game opened up then and Bayern took the lead with a superb Arjen Robben goal who now has scored in every round of the Champion league. Some might even call him the “Flying Dutchman”. Personaly I’d like to see Inter Milan and Bayern Munich in the finals on May 22. Jose Mourinho’s technicality Vs. swift German engineering …. you can’t go wrong although I hope UEFA allows Franck Ribery to play in the finals cause it stands right now he is not allowed to play following the straight red that he received.
