The U.S. government has failed in its bid to extradite 11 men from Quebec's Eastern Townships to Vermont to be tried on charges that they were part of a conspiracy to traffic in marijuana.

The decision to charge the men in Vermont rather than Quebec was made last year by Canadian and U.S. officials even before the men were arrested in raids on Township farms in June of 2005.

Mr. Justice James Brunton of the Quebec Superior Court said Wednesday police believed they were dealing with a criminal organization headed by Werner Kyling of Saint-Armand, Que.

But the evidence showed the organization didn't exist, Brunton said. Without an organization, there's no far-reaching drug conspiracy, and without a far-reaching conspiracy there can be no extradition, he said.
