POT TV – Montreal police launched raids Friday evening against illegal cannabis stores opened one day prior by the self-styled “Prince of Pot,” Marc Emery, and his wife, Jodie.
Police said the operation was ongoing as of 6:30 p.m. and wouldn’t confirm if all six stores opened on Thursday were being targeted.
Local television outlets broadcast images of police taking away Marc Emery outside one of his stores in the city’s Plateau neighbourhood.
As he was being led by officers into a patrol car, Emery flashed a peace sign with his fingers and said: “It’s despicable and an injustice but we will win. The prime minister is a disgrace.”
