Marc Emery, the self described "Prince of Pot", a Canadian pro Marijuana activist will be interviewed on CBS's "Sixty Minutes" on Sunday, March 5th.

Marc Emery has operated a thriving cannabis seed business for the past ten years in Canada. He has payed Canadian taxes for the seeds he has sold and he has used the huge profits that he has made to promote the legalization of Marijuana in Canada and elsewhere.

Last year, his seed business was raided by American DEA officers (without proper notice to Canadian authorities) in an operation that raises issues of Canadian sovereignty. Currently, Mr. Emery is free on bond and is appealing his possible extradition to the States in Canadian courts. If he is extradited, Marc Emery faces 31 years to life for selling seeds! SEEDS !

Veteran CBS reporter, Bob Simon, will be interviewing Marc Emery -- an extremely articulate advocate of Marijuana as medicine as well as recreation has been featured in a number of Canadian documentaries and even a play. If anyone has heard Marc speak, then you already know that he is a very articulate and persuasive individual. If you havn't heard him speak, then you might be in for a real ride watching this interview. He is encylopedic in his knowledge about Cannabis and the many legal actions that governments, especially the U.S. government, have tried to stop the use of what could be a "miricle drug" for so many different medical conditions.

But what might make this interview intersting viewing could be the blatant intrusion into Canadian sovereignty that was behind his Marc's arrest.

That is just messed up that the US DEA busted someone in another country for something that is not wrong or even illegal over there.

The laws on pot are obscene, in Florida you can get 25 years to life for just your 3rd offence if the judge decides you are a 'habitual' trafficer of the stuff. Rapists and murderers get off easier.

The DEA is corrupt, out of control, and is a true terrorist organization and I can only pray that the free world will see the light and unite to put an end to their reign.
