What Sentence for Marijuana Seed Dealer?

What Sentence for Marijuana Seed Dealer?
By Shuyee Lee, CJAD - Thursday, October 29 2009
TAGS: HEADLINE NEWS CANADA COURT DRUG WAR POLICE PRISON SEEDS

The Canadian government wants online marijuana seed seller Richard Hratch Baghdadlian behind bars for five years.

Is he a hardened on-line marijuana dealer or an enterprising entrepreneur?

A Montreal judge will decide and sentence him in the way he sees fit.

The Crown says Richard Hratch Bagdadlian knew exactly what he was doing when he broke the law and wants him to serve five years behind bars.

The RCMP arrested him for exporting and importing marijuana seeds on the Web.

Investigators say the company got 30 orders a day, at 100 dollars per order, buying and selling seeds all over the world.

His company Heaven's Stairway made as much as 800-thousand dollars in gross revenues in only one year with Bagdadlian pocketing about 150-thousand of that.

The 41-year-old Montreal man pleaded guilty to the charges.

But during his sentencing hearing, Bagdadlian insisted it was all above board: registering the company, hiring workers, shipping his goods in a transparent fashion, filing tax returns, the whole nine yards.

His lawyer says his client believed it was a legit venture, wasn't doing anything under the radar and should not get jail time, but rather a community sentence.

did they manage to make seeds illegal? or is this illegal imprisonment?
seeds like mushrooms prints, don't contain anything illegal in them.

I'm not sure what the federal and territorial laws on seeds are. My understanding is they are illegal (but not on the crisis list) in most places. Anyone know?

They are just like in the states. They take something legal that they don't like and get the person on a variety of technicalities. It was legal to possess and sell seeds but not to send them to the states. He should get probation.

In 1987, there was enacted an addition to the Canadian Narcotic Control Act concerning the prohibition of "Cannabis sativa, its preparations, & derivatives". This addition exempted "non-viable cannabis seed" from the Act.

This means seeds that can be grown into marijuana plants are illegal, but edible hemp seeds and by-products are legal. Also, viable seeds are legally sold to medicinal marijuana users.
In the end, the Canadian law regarding marijuana sort of places seeds in a grey area- normally nothing will be done but if they want to make a point or have a grudge the govn't WILL take you down for it...

I remember just several years back the whole momentum was moving forwards with cannabis, within Canada. All that progess appears to have been turned back though- yet there is still no sign of this new trend slowing.
