> 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.
