Marc Emery
    #1754009 - 07/27/03 10:05 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

What do you think of him?

Noble forsure, but many people are questionable of his antic's. I think he need's to back down a bit on his political platform and be receptive to what the people are prepared to accept...and liberalize with time..as he gains power and respect.
Ive often questioned the way he handle's some situations and no doubt his current "summer of legalization tour". Well, he's been detained 4 times, its not seeming so legal..BUT its brilliant at the same time, getting tons of press, and in every press release on CC he's practically complimenting the cop's on how he's treated...getting on their good side it seems.
Conclusion: I think he's a bit immature to be representing marijuana, but i think he's great for the community and will be/is on the forefront of liberalizing drug policy.

What do you think?

I think he does what he does just as publicity stunts to promote his business. Things happen that he had nothing to do with, and people give him credit for it. For some reason some people think he has helped with the decriminalization of marijuana. I can't really see how anything he has done could have resulted in that.

I hate him because he capatalizes off of marijuana. He sells some seeds for $300. From a plant that grows in the ground.

Na, alot of people think his seed sales are justified because he puts so much money into the cause...even through pot tv/cannabisculture.com, the magazine, the BC marijuana party, legal fee's of the busted...

He really get's pot into the headline's, im actually surprised (pleasantly) to see your guy's's opinion.

I have heard a lot of negative reports from others about his business practices (ie. ripping off seed orders, sending inferior seeds, stealing genetics from breeders) My guess without any first hand knowledge is he's probably solely concerned with his own well being.

He may put a lot of money in the cause but the fact remains that he's charging $300 for 10 seeds from a plant. In my opinion he creates a lot of negative publicity as well. Normal people just see him as this crazy stoner that goes around everywhere getting arrested.

Cost-wise, $300 for top shelf seeds really isn't that bad as long as they're feminized (which is what the really expensive ones usually are) and you don't fuck up the grow; if one were to get a pound off of the first harvest, take cuttings off of the best plants and get another pound...see what I'm saying, it's like costing next to nothing at that point. Of course, one would like to assume that legitimate quality seed is involved in such an enterprise, and not something less or other than advertised.
He may be a little more public with his actions than others, but doesn't someone have to be?

I think its a pretty good thing he's doing. Hitler thinks hes doing it for his own good, but I really don't see him doing it for that. Hes always donating to American marijuana partys that are trying to get started, has put together the best cannabis magazine, and a very good site with lots of differant shows. I think he's an honest guy, but nobodys knows for sure.

Marc IS a consumate politician and a shrewed businessman.This has made some folks angry with some of what he's done.
I will tell you how I feel about my freindly aquaintance with Marc Emery.He is a generous and gracious host who easily makes you feel at home in his home.He is attentive to the needs of handicapped freinds and has genuine compasssion for the medical users of cannabis.
He also has an upscale godfather/rockstar ego and is quite impressed with his own importance.In his business he has dealt with some unsavory characters and has the sack to handle anyone who wishes to break bad with him.In spite of all this he remains the largest and most public af all cannabis businessmen/activists.He also contributes a large percentage of his profit to many social programs.In short Marc is exactly the man which this industry has propelled to his present status,all the altruism of the true believing stoner and all the cynicism and hard edges of a businessman in a grey market industry.
I would vote for him for any political office,better the crook you understand..................

"he creates a lot of negative publicity as well. Normal people just see him as this crazy stoner that goes around everywhere getting arrested."

Now thats what im talking about. He needs to win over the normal people by being a bit more conservative while pushing liberal policies (but as i said, he need's to be receptive to what they want to see at this time). I mean, just the fact that he wants pot legal wins over most of the marijuana community, now he need's to get the other 35% or so of people to start winning some vote's. Either way, i think he's the best mover'n'shaker we got, but the way he does things could be delaying the enevitable.

I know of some very bad things he's done which could be extremely detrimental to his freedom's, business and political career's, risk's that probably shouldnt have been taken under any circumstances.

"Cost-wise, $300 for top shelf seeds really isn't that bad as long as they're feminized (which is what the really expensive ones usually are) and you don't fuck up the grow;"

as many have said marc emery is a rip off, and 300$ for seeds you can buy for 150 or less elsewhere is a total ripoff. but people buy fromh im because they dont know any better.
its a known fact he charges 2x's more for seeds then other sites...

If they're the same seeds, sw1sha, then logically, yes, you've saved a few bucks. $150 for ten feminized would be a very good deal, they typically seem to run in that $300 range for any strain of feminized. Do you recommend anyone in particular that you feel would be safe for someone to pursue such business deals with? It also seems like the Dutch seeds are all in the higher range since they're typically feminized, true?

marc emery sucks all he does is rip people off there are 100's of posts on overgrow about people getting ripped off all he does is blow up the spot on smuggling into the US and raise the eyes of DEA, don't buy feminized seeds all you need is some giberellic acid and a flowering female.

$300 for 10 feminized seeds is NOT a good deal, overgrow.com has links of seed sellers for great prices, way, way , way below that.

I dont know the guy enough personally or otherwise to make an opinion about him

He charges for F2 ripoffs of other people's genetics for more than what you can get f1 origionals for from the breeder, or way more than what you can get F2s for from other distributors.

If you want to make a real contribution, buy your seeds from someone else, then donate $100 to a real reform group.
