POT ACTIVIST JAILED

Saskatoon - One of Canada's best-known marijuana activists was sentenced
Thursday to three months in jail after pleading guilty to trafficking when
he passed a joint to a supporter last March.

Marc Emery, president of the B.C. Marijuana Party, was charged with
trafficking after he spoke at a political rally at the University of
Saskatchewan in March.

Mr. Emery's lawyer said the sentence is too strict for simply passing one
joint to one person.

"I do have an issue with the length of the sentence," said Leanne Johnson.
"Three months is a bit of overkill, perhaps, for passing one joint to one
person."

Outside the courthouse, Mr. Emery said his devotion to marijuana won't change.

"Marijuana is the most beautiful, perfect plant ever put on this earth. I'm
a great devotee of it and that won't change, no matter what a judge would
sentence me to."

Marijuana has provided medical benefits to many Canadians, added Mr. Emery,
who has been a common figure at pro-pot rallies for years.

WOW, 3 months! Where I live they would have had him on charges of possession, possession with intent to distribute, distribution of a controlled substance, public intoxication (assuming he had smoked it), and criminal mischief. With a minimum sentence of 1 year for a first offense.

3 months sounds like he is lucky.

Although I agree that the laws in both places are overkill and useless.
