"Three MPs -- Libby Davies of the New Democratic Party, Ujjal Dosanjh of the Liberals and Scott Reid of the Conservatives -- presented a petition asking Justice Minister Rob Nicholson not to sign extradition papers that would send Mr. Emery south to serve a five-year sentence for selling marijuana seeds online in 2005. More than 12,000 Canadians signed the petition. [...]

Canadian courts have established a person convicted of selling marijuana seeds should face a fine of $200. In the U.S., a person could be sentenced to life in prison for the same crime. Mr. Emery, 52, and two employees were arrested in 2005 by Canadian police acting as agents for the U.S. department of justice. He is not facing a charge in Canada."

One brave soul from each party won't do the trick. Harper is a child who thinks pot is "bad". How can a child like that ever see anything but black and white and to Harper's eyes, Marc Emery is black.

I have always thought of Marc Emery as a kind of hero. Not because I am especially passionate about liberalized dope laws, but because he stands up for what he believes and that's a rare thing.

It seems stupid to be so draconian in enforcement of pot laws when it's so so harmless to most people. The amount of money spent on prohibition cannot be justified, nor can we justify criminalizing people for something so harmless. Our pot laws still ruin people's lives. It's madness.
