Police raided a business run by a well-known pot activist on Friday based on a search warrant requested by the U.S. government, which wants Marc Emery extradited to face charges related to the sale of marijuana seeds on the Internet and by mail.
Emery, who is also leader of the B.C. Marijuana party, was not at the store when it was raided but U.S. justice officials said he was arrested earlier Friday in Nova Scotia by the RCMP.
Authorization for city police to conduct the raid was given Thursday by Associate Chief Justice Patrick Dohm of the B.C. Supreme Court under the Mutual Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters Act.
The search warrant sets out a long list of requests made by the United States to the Vancouver police department.
It asks police to seize cash and receipts, client lists and other records identifying purchasers of goods from Emery, and employee records, including applications for employment. It also asks for business and company incorporation documents, leases, rental agreements, computers, hard drives, diskettes and CD-ROMS.

The American are generally silly when it comes to pot, the are simply too many sheeple in one country. That said, Marc is an antagionist, remember when Pot was legal here in Toronto he shows up on the police head office with his buddies(SOME 100+) smoking and taughting the cops with it.
I am all for it being legal and hugely against on giving any Canadian to American cops, let alone for something they seem so ignorant on.
Maybe it is time to start a fire ala 1812?
