Marijuana Party runs jailbird candidate

Marijuana Party runs jailbird candidate
May 3, 2005 canada.com

The Marijuana Party is running the first candidate in British Columbia who will campaign from jail.

Donald Briere is running in the riding of Surrey-Tynehead.

Briere was arrested and charged with possession of marijuana for the purpose of trafficking in September, 2004, in connection with the crackdown on the Da Kine cannibis-friendly coffee shop. At the time, Briere was on parole for a 2001 conviction for smuggling marijuana into the United States.

Marijuana Party President Mark Emery says he's "really proud of everything" Briere has done.

"I'm proud to have the first candidate ever to run from prison for office in British Columbia," Emery said.

"Usually they wait until they're premier before they go to prison, or at least should go to prison, but we're deciding that we're going to have a guy who's proven he's worth the confidence of the community by standing up for what he believes in."

Briere also ran as the Marijuana Party candidate in the Surrey-Tynehead riding in the last election and garnered 385 votes, roughly two per cent of the total.

He is currently incarcerated in Abbotsford's Pacific Institution.
