It seems absurd that Marc and Jodi Emery, who have spent years fighting the unjust laws against marijuana, in and out of prison, can’t now sell the product, while Conservative MP and former OPP commissioner Julian Fantino, who once compared marijuana to murder, is going to cash in. The Emerys will appear in a Toronto courtroom where they will plead guilty to marijuana charges laid after the police busted marijuana stores they were running in Ontario and British Columbia. They will have to pay large fines. The Emerys will likely eventually find a way to participate in the legal marijuana business – using their high profile to boost the business prospects of a licensed producer after pot is legalized next summer – but the immediate future is uncertain.
