Marc Emery, the so-called Prince of Pot, remains defiant about flouting pot laws in Canada despite his arrest in Montreal on Friday.
Emery was one of 10 people arrested when police raided the Cannabis Culture shops around town. Emery was released from detention Saturday. After his arraignment, he flew back to Toronto the same day.
He is scheduled to appear in court in Montreal on Feb. 15.
Although it has been reported he was slapped with three charges — drug trafficking, possession for trafficking, and conspiracy — Emery said he was only charged with two offences.
“People are saying I got charged with conspiracy, but my charges don’t say that on my paper,” he told the Montreal Gazette in a telephone interview from Toronto.
Emery is not sure what to make of the conspiracy argument.
