John Robert Boone will stay behind bars in Montreal until the order is carried out.

A deportation order has been issued for an American man known as the “Godfather of Grass.”

The Canadian immigration board has also ruled that John Robert Boone will remain behind bars in Montreal until the order is carried out.

Boone, 73, watched today’s hearing by videoconference and made a brief statement saying he isn’t a danger to the public.

Boone had been on the run for eight years when he was arrested in Montreal in December, several months after city police opened an investigation at the request of U.S. officials.

The U.S. Marshals Service says authorities had been looking for Boone since seizing 2,400 marijuana plants on his Kentucky farm in 2008.

Boone spent more than a decade in a U.S. federal prison after being convicted in the 1980s in what prosecutors called the “largest domestic marijuana syndicate in American history.”
