Princess of Pot pushed Prop 19

Despite the defeat yesterday in a California referendum to legalize marijuana, the cannabis culture movement will not give up, said Jodie Emery, a high-profile Vancouver marijuana activist.

Emery — whose husband Marc, Vancouver’s so-called “Prince of Pot,” is serving time in a U.S. prison — was in Oakland to support Proposition 19 during the U.S. midterm elections.

“I’m sure the campaign will just start working harder on the election campaign for two years from now,” Emery said.

She called the prohibition of cannabis a failed policy that creates more harm than marijuana itself.
