Marc Emery released

Has it been 90 days already? Marc was released yesterday morning from the Saskatoon jail after serving his ridiculous sentence for passing one joint at a pot rally.

News accounts are sketchy but Dana Larsen reports through the listserv that Marc had to wait for 45 minutes for them to find his Armani suit which he wore to court when he was sentenced. They apparently never found it.

His release comes at an opportune moment for his supporters on vigil outside of the courthouse as it's been snowing up there and has been freezing cold. They set up for the last time during a virtual blizzard to listen to Marc's radio show and to await his triumphant return. I expect there will be more on this at Cannabis Culture once they settle down after the homecoming celebration.
