CANNABIS CULTURE - My wife Jodie Emery and I both receive thousands of letters and inquiries with impassioned pleas that read: "I want to do something to make a difference. I want to legalize marijuana. What can I do? Can you advise or help me start? Where do I begin?"
The United States federal government has arrested two Seattle activists who were attempting to serve a cease and desist order on the Department of Justice in the wake of federal raids on medical cannabis dispensaries last week.
I knew Michelle Rainey for about 10 years. We first met in 1999 when she started working for Marc Emery. I was living at Marc's house on the Sunshine Coast at the time, it was a very busy place with many people staying, coming and going all the time. Marc was looking for a housekeeper, someone to buy groceries, make meals, clean up and keep his household running smoothly.
