“The Prince and Princess of Pot” Marc and Jodie Emery arrested in Toronto
Prominent pro-marijuana activists and ideacity alumni Marc and Jodie Emery were arrested at Pearson International Airport on Wednesday evening after Mrs. Emery made an appearance on VisionTV’s news and current affairs program, “theZoomer”.
“The only reason there is medical marijuana in this country is because dispensaries and patients and growers were arrested, and charged, and paid lawyers – they were demonized and they won,” Jodie Emery argues. “The only way to change this law is to break this law. This government has never given access to marijuana willfully.”
“I am dedicated to this civil liberties issue, and if anybody here has been at ideacity, they’ve seen me talk about it.”
