Poll question: What do you all think of Marc Emery???
Marc Scott Emery (born February 13, 1958) is a Canadian cannabis activist. He is the publisher of Cannabis Culture Magazine. He also ran for mayor of the city of Vancouver in 1996 and 2002 and came in fifth the second time.

He is formerly a retailer of marijuana seeds for cultivation, having started Marc Emery Direct Marijuana Seeds in 1995, which he ran until it was closed by a raid by Vancouver police acting on the request of the United States Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on July 29, 2005.

He currently faces extradition to the US where he could face a life sentence for selling seeds and "laundering" the profits into pro cannabis legalization activities. His outspoken advocacy in favor of legalizing marijuana led the media, beginning with CNN in the United States, to dub him "The Prince of Pot," a nickname he embraces heartily.

On March 5th, 2006, 60 Minutes did a piece on Marc and his struggles against the United States DEA.

Supplimental article:

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.
