Emails were sent out to US citizens explaining why the government will not comment on the request to free Marc Emery.
On the US government’s website for petitioning the government, they refuse to comment on various topics.
In this case, Marc Emery is a Canadian citizen that was extradited to the US for spreading his opinion that cannabis should be legal. In the official reason, no mention was made that he was imprisoned for selling marijuana seeds.
He has committed no violent crime and spoke in favor of a plant that once was central to the lives of thousands of humans. The constitution of the USA was drafted on paper made of hemp. It would be unthinkable to the Founding Fathers that one day paramilitary SWAT teams would be turned against US citizens for having a plant. Searches and seizures of plants and possessions prior to any trial are going on. Military strength attacks are made upon Americans. This is far from the intent of personal liberty our Founding Fathers intended.
Further, to go into a foreign country to imprison one of their citizens by unjust laws more harsh that their own, seems beyond belief.
Please support freeing Marc Emery.
