The Jodie Emery Show – May 2, 2013

submitted by on

Marc's transfer paperwork is in Washington D.C., and he has 432 days left on his prison sentence. With approval of the transfer back to Canada, his time could be cut by 6 months, so we all are hoping for the best. Marc's blog about his prison band Yazoo got an article in the Vancouver Metro newspaper – see it here: http://metronews.ca/news/vancouver/65…

Jodie also hit the papers with her letter to the editor having been published in both of our major newspapers in BC, The Vancouver Sun and The Province. The letter was in response to an article about police and "drug impaired driving", and Jodie's explanation about how impairment is proven by performance. She reads the letter to us.

There's so much is happening with Jodie's election campaign, running in the British Columbia provincial election, as the BC Green Party candidate in Vancouver-West End. We all went out to hold up signs today (and many days!) and Jodie's been taking part in events and debates and media interviews. You can see all of that and more at her web page http://www.JodieForMLA.ca

Saturday May 4, 2013 is The Global Marijuana March. Here in Vancouver we will gather at the Art Gallery at High Noon and the march starts at 2:00 p.m. Where ever you are, try to get and show your support for changing the cannabis laws. Check out all of the worldwide news coverage on the Global Marijuana March at http://www.CannabisCulture.com and http://www.Pot.tv

The Jodie Emery Show – February 28, 2013

submitted by on

On the last day of February, Jodie has new visit photos and two pictures of Marc with his prison bass guitar! He now has 495 days left on his US prison sentence, plus the possibility of coming home earlier if transferred to Canada. With the US facing budget cuts, we hope they'll approve his transfer to get him out of the American prison system!

There's plenty of protest over the GEO Group's attempt to advertise and sponsor a stadium at Florida Atlantic University. The GEO group operate private prisons in the US and are campaigning to expand into Canada. Marc was in one of their prisons in Georgia and it was corrupt and very poorly run. He blogged about it between November 2010 and May 2011. Read the story about GEO Group's stadium plans here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/02/27/florida-atlantic-university-geo-group-fau_n_2774100.html

The BC election campaign has begun. Jodie shares some photos from when she and Jeremiah went out to gather the signatures she needs to be able to run for office. The BC Green Party had Jodie run as a candidate in 2009, and officially supports ending prohibition, so we support them! If you like to help, donate or read Jodie's platform, go to http://www.JodieForMLA.ca

Sensible BC, a campaign to decriminalize Cannabis in British Columbia spearheaded by amazing long-time activist Dana Larsen, hit the newspapers with ads for their free public forums and dialogues on BC's marijuana policy. Public forums will be held in the following locations: UBC, SFU Harbour Ctr., West Van, North Van, SFU Burnaby, Coquitlam, Richmond, Delta, Surrey, Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Kamloops, Kelowna, Prince George, Dawson Creek. For the details go to http://www.SensibleBC.ca

Jodie gives away another Free Marc t-shirt, stickers and a pin, plus some extra goodies. She also shows us a special prize for next week's draw – a poster autographed by Marc Emery back in 2009 right before he began his prison sentence. You have to be in the BubbleBag to win, so send an email to jodie@cannabisculture.com
