I posted on this before but it's worth repeating. All indications are that the DEA is attempting to run a sting operation and perhaps round up more cannabis growers around the world. At least 60 people have reported receiving extremely odd letters purported to be from Emery Seeds.
Some of Emery's customers were stunned recently to receive a letter purportedly seeking support money for Emery's defence fund. "Smoke for freedom of choice! Smoke for our leader! Overgrow the government!" reads the notice, which asks for an additional $50 to fill seed orders and stipulates that donations be sent via money order through Wal-Mart or Western Union – both of which require I.D. It's from info given at the money-order stage that pot activists contend the DEA is amassing its hit list.If you got one of these letters, you can be sure they didn't come from Marc and you might want to take some precautions if you actually do operate a grow.
According to Emery, notices have turned up in 16 U.S. states, seven provinces and territories, as well as New Zealand and Australia.
Emery's sure it's the work of the DEA. He says info the DEA has so far disclosed to his lawyer, John Conroy, indicates that its agents scanned both the incoming and outgoing mail for his seed operation in the weeks prior to his arrest on July 29.
