B.C.'s imprisoned 'Prince of Pot' seriously ill
B.C.'s imprisoned 'Prince of Pot' seriously ill
QMI Agency, 11 July 2011

The man known as the "prince of pot" has contracted a serious infection while in prison in the U.S.

Vancouver native Marc Emery, the marijuana activist, is serving time in Mississippi for selling mail-order marijuana seeds to American customers.

He's been diagnosed with an antibiotic-resistant "superbug" - a bacterial infection called MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, MRSA can develop into serious, life-threatening complications, but most cases are limited to the skin and can be successfully treated. It's highly contagious and spreads quickly through areas with large contained populations, like prisons and health-care facilities.

"I suffer anxiety whenever I don't hear from Marc for a number of hours at a time... And I'm scared for his health," reads a tweet from Emery's wife Jodie. "Thankfully Marc is in a Bureau Of Prisons facility with better medical care than private prisons..."

Emery is the publisher of Cannabis Culture magazine (his prison blog is published on its website), and was a founding member of the Marijuana Party of Canada and the BC Marijuana Party. He ran for mayor in Vancouver three times.

Emery was extradited to the U.S., and has three years left of his five-year sentence, with his release date set for July 2014.

More on Marc Emery and his precedent setting case in getting extradited from Canada to the US for selling plant seeds.

What's the matter with Marc Emery supporters?

Hope him and his family pulls through this. Thoughts go out anyone suffering from debilitating and life threatening disease.

Disease is a business and when business is booming things tend to snowball out of hand. I've seen some glimmers of hope in people in transforming the sickness industry into a proactive health initiative. Hope it continues, for my childrens' sake and all those in future generations.
There are no others, there is only us.
