It's Monday, April 2nd, 828 days to go to my release date of July 9, 2014. Although I get 'released' from prison on that date, because I am Canadian I have a 'detainer' on me, so what happens is US Immigration picks me up from the prison and takes me to an immigration detention center, puts me before a judge where I confirm I want to be deported back to Canada, and then I'll wait in an immigration jail until they put me on a plane to Vancouver with some US Marshall escorting me.Read more »
As Jodie is about to head off to visit with Marc, she shows five new photos of her and Marc in prison, and reminds us that he has 852 days left on his US sentence, until his early release in July 2014.
Check out Marc's latest blog at http://www.CannabisCulture.com and http://www.FreeMarc.ca all about the Conservatives in Canada and the Republicans in the US. (Or click here: http://www.cannabisculture.com/v2/node/30164 )
Bill C-10, the dreaded Conservative crime bill with mandatory minimum prison sentences for pot, has passed through the Senate and is awaiting a vote in the House. You should still write to your Member of Parliament and let them know you do not support this legislation.

My wife Jodie Emery and I both receive thousands of letters and inquiries with impassioned pleas that read: "I want to do something to make a difference. I want to legalize marijuana. What can I do? Can you advise or help me start? Where do I begin?" This is a question, without rival, that we hear most often.
It comes mostly from Americans and Canadians, but I have received the same question from India, Australia, Europe, the Philippines, Japan, and all over the world. It is a universal desire shared by many people in the cannabis culture the planet over. Read more »
Dearest Miss: I’ve been keeping busy, and am actually enjoying the extreme heat down here. Each day in the morning, or even from noon to 3pm, I go to an elevated wooden umpire booth behind the baseball diamond and take off my t-shirt, sit in the shade, and feel this gentle breeze while I read my magazines, books, and NY Times newspapers for two to three hours. I play my bass guitar every evening and most afternoons. Read more »
Dearest Jodie: As of May 21st, I've been at Yazoo City medium security federal prison for 31 days and I'm fairly settled in, so I'll describe my daily routine and what it’s like here. There are three buildings that house 128 men in a unit, 4 units to a building, so 512 men to a building when filled to capacity. Read more »
Dearest Sweet Wife: Today, April 16th, I have 1,188 days to go until my release date of July 9th, 2014. That includes my 235 days good time credit, so I have to hope I can maintain that good standing to get out by then. That's 38 months and 3 weeks away, a long time, no doubt, but it was once 60 months. And before that there was five years where you and I anticipated the inevitable extradition and incarceration with anxiety and unspoken dread. Read more »
Marc is now in Yazoo City, Mississippi -- please send him letters! www.FreeMarc.ca -- and we all missed him at the annual Vancouver 4/20 event on April 20th... but we had a massive FREE MARC banner on stage to remember him.

Jodie also shares her voter registration card and explains how to get out and VOTE on May 2nd!

Dear WhyProhibition.ca users,
This morning we suffered an outage while our domain name provider, Netfirms Inc was migrating its systems. During the migration, Netfirms failed to transfer our domain's update correctly and accidentally registered WhyProhibition.ca as expired.
I wanted to assure everyone that WhyProhibition.ca has not expired, and we are not going anywhere.
This is entirely a problem at Netfirms, and we contacted them within minutes of the changes being registered. Netfirms was unable to fix the problem in time, and the error has begun propagating throughout the internet. As of now, our traffic has been reduced by 2/3 and we expect the domain error to be fully propagated by tomorrow (at which point WhyProhibition.ca will be entirely inaccessible) Read more »
