Marc Emery Heading To U.S. Jail

Vancouver's Marc Emery Awaits Extradition for Shipping Marijuana Seeds to the U. S.

Canada's self-proclaimed "Prince of Pot" was escorted out of B. C. Supreme Court and into jail Monday to await extradition to the U. S., where he is to serve up to five years in prison for shipping marijuana seeds across the border.

Marc Emery, 51, was indicted in 2005 along with two associates on drug and money-laundering charges stemming from a lucrative mail-order pot-seed business run out of Emery's Vancouver book and paraphernalia shop, which also doubled as B. C.'s Marijuana Party headquarters.

Two charges Emery faced--conspiracy to distribute marijuana and conspiracy to engage in money laundering-- were dropped in exchange for his guilty plea on the charge of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.

He has agreed to a five-year imprisonment plea bargain in connection with his $3-million a year marijuana seed catalogue business, where most of his customers were American.
