‘Prince of Pot’ Marc Emery on looming legalization

Marc Emery is Canada’s self-proclaimed ‘Prince of Pot,’ and cannabis legalization has long been his cause, but with recreational marijuana becoming legal next …


  1. Govt wants to charge $10/gram, good luck with that. I been getting 1/4 oz for $50 for years. U can buy BC buds for $200 oz online. I use The Dispensary but Cannabismo is also recommended for mail order buds.
    I dont think alot of people realize what this framework means. It was setup by the police. Down the road we will have to truly fix our legal system when it comes to freedom to use this plant.

  2. Marc is the man. If u enjoy Sunday shopping, thank Marc. I bought many seeds from Marc, and have known him since he owned City Lights Bookshop, where he gave away books on Sunday in an effort to get Sunday shopping.

  3. It just got legalized and people expect cheaper than 3$ a gram. It will get that cheap and the quality will only go up from here so stop acting like it isn't a great day for canada. Those businesses will drop their prices and get better stock over time to make more money for themselves. Chill out and watch things improve for you and stop jumping to conclusions.

  4. Congratulations Canada, but it sounds like you have some ignorant lawmakers who need correction and reproof.

    I’ll be petitioning for you all, and may The Most High governor bless Canadians with grace so that they may continually use this magnificent flowering reed the way He intended to be used. Amen

  5. What about the hundred and thousands of (black) an racially marginalized people were thrown in jail for that plant both here in canada and in the states.

    It has to have a white face right( the black market) black market is what made it for the(marijuana revolution) to be possible

  6. I'm Canadian, and an active recreational user of pot.

    From what I have gathered so far, Canada is certainly not prepared for the legalization of cannabis, they should have waited until stores are open to the public before legalization, and there needs to be more policies towards smoking pot. Even though some provinces have policies against smoking in public, I still believe that it should be like that every where too..I just cannot imagine what it would be like to have a kid who for his entire life kept in the dark in regards to seeing the use of pot only to suddenly see someone casually smoking a joint walking down the street. Imagine having to explain that to your kid..It should be treated like booze, only done in the safety of your home or at a bar (or in pot's case a lounge) There should be more steps taken to where it can be smoked just like regulations for smoking cigarettes, and we need more time to come to terms with it.

  7. Exclusive licenses DON'T work. Not the least of which the problem is that those limited licenses will go to the drug companies competition like big tobacco or alcohol investors. So they have no incentive to encourage its use over tobacco or alcohol. But also because it sets of system of kickbacks for the oligopoly.

    The way it should be is you can grow a personal amount but can't sell. Commercial growers like most any food seller needs a retail license for pot which anyone qualified can get.

  8. 95% of people who have been criminalized for being in the craft cannabis industry (the "black market") are not associated with organized crime. This fact was presented as evidence during the Allard trial.

    So, what is legalization really about? They want to snatch the industry out of the hands of the honest and hardworking people who built it.
