The Jodie Emery Show: Marc and His Prison Bass Guitar
POT TV - Watch new episodes of The Jodie Emery Show each week for the latest news on Marc Emery, CCHQ, and Canada's cannabis community. In this episode: On the last day of February, Jodie has new visit photos and two pictures of Marc with his prison bass guitar!
He now has 495 days left on his US prison sentence, plus the possibility of coming home earlier if transferred to Canada. With the US facing budget cuts, we hope they'll approve his transfer to get him out of the American prison system!
There's plenty of protest over the GEO Group's attempt to advertise and sponsor a stadium at Florida Atlantic University. The GEO group operate private prisons in the US and are campaigning to expand into Canada. Marc was in one of their prisons in Georgia and it was corrupt and very poorly run. He blogged about it between November 2010 and May 2011. Read the story about GEO Group's stadium plans.
The BC election campaign has begun. Jodie shares some photos from when she and Jeremiah went out to gather the signatures she needs to be able to run for office. The BC Green Party had Jodie run as a candidate in 2009, and officially supports ending prohibition, so we support them!
