FLASHBACK: “Princess of Pot” Jodie Emery claims “Trudeau was never in favour of legalization”

Faith GoldyArchive

Vancouver marijuana activists Marc and Jodie Emery were arrested in Toronto on Wednesday, charged with drug trafficking, possession and other offenses. Here's an interview I conducted on May 27, 2016 with Jodie Emery, about PM Justin Trudeau's campaign promise to decriminalize marijuana:

While not a big fan of marijuana, (I don’t even smoke) I agree with Jodie that the Liebranos never intended to change the laws regarding this issue. Jihadi Justin’s only interest is to continue to dangle legalization in the noses of millenials to get support!

Decriminalize weed and forget about it. Legalizing pot is a waste of resources because the goal otherwise is to raise taxes revenues which will drive up prices, because the government is more greedy than organized crime. Access to weed is currently easier than cigarettes; and studies have shown that nearly half the cigarette butts counted on High School property are from illegal sources. Why does anyone think things would be any different for legalized pot? Be careful what you wish for.

Funny thing is, Junior and his mother admit to like smoking dope but Junior will put you in jail if you do it.

This is why the liberals opened the door to unrestricted entry from Mexico. Junior and the liberal elite are the real drug dealers, because they will be sure to get their cut from the drug cartels. So between the Mexicans and the Muslims, they will control the drug trade in Canada, and the government will tax the hell out of the users. The medical drug cards were a ploy to determine a customer base. I hope those who voted for this pompous ass learn that a liberal will promise anything to get elected!

“I would feel very unsafe with scores of marijuana doped up drivers on the road.”
Paul Maurice you’re kidding right?

You know, people like the Jodi Emry and others with their own agendas to push always use the argument – it’s the people’s choice and the public wants this or that, and it’s an individual choice etc.
The one that really gets me is – it’s an individual’s choice, so because an individual or individuals declare it their choice of something or the other, the government, the police and the courts have to make it OK for everyone.
Justin f*cking Trudeau uses a similar statement whenever he tries to pull the wool over our eyes. His favorite saying is the Canadian public call for this or the public voted for this or Canadians agree etc.
When are assholes like these fools going to learn that just saying things like that does not justify or make your asinine beliefs or statements fact or true.
commented 2017-03-10 20:41:37 -0500
Don’t know what was in Justin’s bong when he came up with a half-baked idea….it’s way more complicated than he imagined!
commented 2017-03-10 20:38:37 -0500
If anything , we need to end the debate on the issue and move forward. The status quo position isn’t in keeping with the street and public realities. Decriminalizing is probably the best way to go rather than making it totally legal. A little ludicrous to be imposing government will in regards to smoking and then having a free for all approach to pot.
If the conservatives were smart, they would introduce a motion to decriminalize pot and out Trudeau on the spot. Get it out of the way before the election .(if we have one)

I would feel very unsafe with scores of marijuana doped up drivers on the road.
I knew Mark Emery in London, Ontario….when he was in high school, when he ran a book shop, and when he became libertarian pot-obsessed activist.
I have never known a more obnoxious and odious and rude person …. a total asshole.

An interview with your friendly neighbourhood drug pusher, smooth talking Jodie Emery. Of course drug trafficking can be very lucrative. No doubt she is addicted to the profits. I can just see her hanging out with the high school kids, offering freebies that will pay back in steady customers later on. Si she and her homie were arrested in Toronto on Wednesday, charged with drug trafficking, possession and “other offenses”. I wonder what they might be? I can only speculate…

Agreed Drew. I envision marijuana prices drastically going up, as soon as government gets their claws on it. Look at Smokes, Alcohol and Guns, prices are through the roof. If you know your marijuana dealer well enough, or if he/she is your buddy, you can get a pretty good deal as it stands today. On another note, Dispensaries might not be open to public at convenient hours i.e later at night or holidays or how governments restrict sale of Alcohol past certain times or as you pointed out certain places. Canada also doesn’t need a whole new business of catching & charging people driving around whom have marijuana in their system, because they smoked it on Sunday and now it’s Monday you’re coming home from work and getting pulled over and Mr. Police man suspects you’re high. Here’s a newflash for you hardliner Conservatives out there, a good estimate is probably 80 Percent of Marijuana smokers are driving around now and have been since the 60s, it’s not the same as Alcohol.

If you actually believe Justin then i think you may have smoked a lot more than weed.
commented 2017-03-10 18:45:28 -0500
Levi i agree, all the years i smoked i never wanted the government to sell it, as i knew damn well it would cost a damn fortune in added taxes and i would end up buying from a dealer who could then charge more than they used to while still undercutting the government.
I also wish people would stop comparing it to alcohol as alcohol is not fully legal either. You cannot walk down the street with a beer or crack one while you drive, alcohol also has restrictions.

I have never been in support of Legalisation. Only Decriminalisation, Let’s not let the government control more crap to tax into oblivion. Studies show Decriminalisation actually decreases use of Marijuana. However Trudeau is lying, he won’t legalise weed. Canada is part of 3 global treaties and including one with the United States which restricts the ability to Legalise weed, and criminalises possession and mass cultivation of marijuana. That treaty with the United States is the Reason PMOC Stoned Pimp Jean Chrétien couldn’t legalise marijuana, and he had much more clout and smooth talking abilities than party boy Trudeau. Trudeau is once again lying to the dolts that believe he’s capable of grade 2 level spelling, because him and his party’s approval ratings are plummeting – courtesy M-103 and his stance on S-201 among everything else – even the Fake News behemoth CBC which loves to pander everything Trudeau admits it’s unlikely

This has to be just about the most irrelevant issue on the global scene today. With all the other serious issues facing the world today, any politician who makes this the central issue of their campaign is extremely shallow and completely out of touch with what truly matters to a nations security and well-being. I would never vote for a candidate that makes this a central issue. I couldn’t care less about marijuana or the laws surrounding it.
commented 2017-03-10 17:56:34 -0500
Good comment Faith. Decriminalize so that more onerous crimes can be dealt with appropriately in the court system and police have more man hours for finding and prosecuting the more vicious and killing crimes occurring so much now.

Bet the King Rat JT is having a Grow Opp built in the basement of his newly decorated Government owned Mansion and all at Tax Payer cost. Oh JT, you Weasel.

I doubt Justin thought much past the younger voters he would get with his “promise”. The reality is it is a lot harder to enact considering the treaty’s Canada signed onto. As I never touch the stuff, I can’t really care if he keeps that promise or not.
commented 2017-03-10 13:13:52 -0500
I’m with you Faith. Decriminalize it only. Jody Emery is very well spoken she always impresses me when I hear her. She speaks very intelligently. I would say she is her husbands best asset, as well as for the cause. I don’t agree with her though.

Justin is a whore and I am surprised he hasn’t yet jumped on this for the tax money. We’ll see if he keeps his promise to the kids who voted for him. I’m not sure pot smokers/takers are going to be happier with that government interference. Jody and all suppliers and store fronts, stand to do quite well though.
