US: B.C.'s imprisoned 'Prince of Pot' seriously ill
    #571265 - 07/11/11 10:30 AM (6 years, 11 months ago)

Toronto Sun

Monday 11 Jul 2011
The man known as the "prince of pot" has contracted a serious infection while in prison in the U.S.

Vancouver native Marc Emery, the marijuana activist, is serving time in Mississippi for selling mail-order marijuana seeds to American customers.

He's been diagnosed with an antibiotic-resistant "superbug" - a bacterial infection called MRSA (Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus). According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, MRSA can develop into serious, life-threatening complications, but most cases are limited to the skin and can be successfully treated. It's highly contagious and spreads quickly through areas with large contained populations, like prisons and health-care facilities.

"I suffer anxiety whenever I don't hear from Marc for a number of hours at a time... And I'm scared for his health," reads a tweet from Emery's wife Jodie. "Thankfully Marc is in a Bureau Of Prisons facility with better medical care than private prisons..."

Emery is the publisher of Cannabis Culture magazine (his prison blog is published on its website), and was a founding member of the Marijuana Party of Canada and the BC Marijuana Party. He ran for mayor in Vancouver three times.

Emery was extradited to the U.S., and has three years left of his five-year sentence, with his release date set for July 2014.

Its disgusting, all because they have zero hygeine practices in jail.  I watched em from my cell "cleaning" the cots after some dirty bum had slept on them, getting em ready for the next inmate all they did was give a quick spray of lysol and thats it.
