Marc Emery -- American political prisoner

Marc Emery is in the custody of the United States, and has entered a guilty plea in exchange for a five year prison term. At the time of his indictment in 2005, the Administrator of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration said in the DEA press release that his indictment for conspiring to cultivate marijuana by shipping seeds from Canada was "a significant blow . . . to the marijuana legalization movement."

This typifies how perverted the prosecution function can be in the United States. In America, we do not indict people in order to strike blows against political movements.

Hm… I guess our overlords just break in and steal petitions instead. :-( And use Pavlovian techniques in the most mean-spirited fashion to influence children. (MPP.org, StopTheDrugWar.org)

It is beyond belief that these people, and all the people behind them think this is pleasing to God somehow. Jesus said, "judge right judgement;" [Luke 12:57] so, how many acts of love have been committed in the name of prohibition and how many foul acts?

The fruit of the Drug War Tree should be obvious to all!
