CANADA: B.C. pot advocate Marc Emery has spoken to CBC News in his first interview since being transferred from a U.S. federal prison to a private deportation facility in Louisiana.
Emery was sentenced to five years in prison in 2010 for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana after his Vancouver-based mail order business was busted in a joint operation involving U.S. and Canadian law enforcement agencies in 2005.
After his paperwork is completed and a flight booked to Detroit, it is estimated he will return to Canada sometime between Aug. 10 and 25.
Speaking to CBC Radio, Emery said he was frustrated but doing well and eager to get home and continue his campaigning work.
