Today is the day that Mark Emery heads south. He's going to prison in Washington state, part of a plea bargain over selling seeds.
There was a time when the Canadian government referred clients to him -- after all, patients who qualify to use marijuana for medical purposes have to get their seeds from somewhere, don't they? Yet, despite the government's willingness to recommend Emery as a supplier, they don't stand by him when the U.S. comes a-calling with extradition papers.
For now, Emery will be held until later in the summer when his case will come up and he'll be sentenced to time in an American prison.
