Marc Emery strikes deal

Marc Emery strikes deal
For everyone like myself who thought Harper was just going to hand over Emery for life in prison, this comes as good news.

It's kind of old news but I didn't see it on the forum so I figured I'd post it.

Quote:Emery has agreed to serve at least five years in jail in Canada, if it means his two friends facing the same charges can remain free

Vancouver-based marijuana activist Marc Emery says his lawyers have cut a deal with U.S. prosecutors that would see him soon serving a minimum of five years in jail.

Marc Emery, nicknamed the Prince of Pot, said Monday that he has struck a deal with U.S. prosecutors to serve jail time in Canada. In July 2005, U.S. drug enforcement officials asked that Emery be extradited so he could face charges that he, Greg Williams and Michelle Rainey distributed millions of cannabis seeds to American customers at an annual profit of $3 million.
