Here's the thing: HE BROKE THE LAW. Whether or not any of you personally think pot should be legal, or not, the fact is, selling any portion of a pot
plant, including seeds, which can be cultivated, is illegal in the U.S., and while Emory is a canadian citizen, he broke the law in the U.S., and
should face justice.
Here's a concept that is totally forgotten in the U.S.: the law must be enforced. If you disagree with the law, work towards its change. However,
most people don't. They just routinely break the law, and don't understand how doing so undermines society. One might say, "so I smoke a little
pot," or "so I'm only 16 but I get wasted every weekend," and think it doesn't matter, that it only effects those two things. But that is wrong.
It breeds a lack of respect for the law, which leads to other crimes, as well as a general breakdown in the structure of society. Law are made to
govern society, to give it a cohesive structure. In the U.S., legal age citizens have the right to work towards a change in these laws. If you
disagree, change the law, instead of breaking it. Be the solution, instead of the problem.
