Dear Editor:

The Drug Enforcement Agency used the little known Treaty on Mutual
Legal Assistance in Criminal Matters to have the Prince of Pot, Marc
Emery and friends, arrested for conspiracy to sell cannabis seeds. For
good measure the DEA would like to make Marc responsible for every
plant those seeds produced and every dollar anyone in the underground
has ever earned.

Marc is the perfect scapegoat for all of America problems.

Canadians ought to be concerned about extraditing citizens to face the
American Gulag. The American prison system trained the guards at
Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib prison. The Americans have adopted the
moral code of the Christian Crusaders and the Spanish Inquisition.
Canadians would do our duty as a friend to wash the mote from the
American eye.

The American have 'information bombed' themselves back into the Stone
Age as far repealing drug prohibition is concerned.

The Americans will seek a term of 10 years to life for Marc Emery
putting him into the Karla Homolka sentencing range. That ought to
shock the conscious of every Canadian.

Moral righteousness blinds Americans to any semblance of justice.
Reasoned arguments have been lost to the passions of fear. And what do
Americans fear? Well, everything.

The law was meant to assist in 'Criminal Matters'. The Americans have
not been able to distinguish between sin and crime for a very long

Canadians ought not feed into that fear by delivering up sinners like
Marc Emery.
