Prince of Pot Marc Emery will be taken into police custody today as part of the plea deal that will see him extradited to the United States.

Emery, 51, the leader of the B.C. Marijuana Party, will appear in B.C. Supreme Court this morning.

He will then be held in custody until an order is given for his extradition, and he is expected to plead guilty in a Seattle Court to one count of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.

Emery, the editor and publisher of Cannabis Culture Magazine, was arrested in 2005 at the request of U.S. officials for his mail-order pot-seed business.
