‘Prince of Pot’ Marc Emery Arrested in Montreal Dispensary Raids

Article by Christopher Curtis, John Meagher, and Aaron Derfel for Postmedia Network.

Montreal police arrested Canada’s self-proclaimed “Prince of Pot” Friday night and seized 18 kilograms of cannabis a day after the splashy opening of six illegal marijuana dispensaries across the city.

Dozens of officers raided the stores at supper hour, arresting 10 people and confiscating an undisclosed amount of cash and equipment relating to the sale of marijuana. Police would neither confirm nor deny that they nabbed Marc Emery, but his wife Jodie posted a video of him being taken away.

“The message that we want to impart is that the possession and trafficking of marijuana is currently illegal, and the police department will enforce the law that’s in effect,” Verissimo said.

“Whether one has a (store) permit or not, that changes absolutely nothing.”

Verissimo added that police had received complaints about the Cannabis Culture dispensaries, which had attracted long lineups despite frigid temperatures.
