In 2009, a dear friend to this reporter personally, Mr. Marc Emery, aka The Canadian "Prince of Pot" was extradited to the U.S. from his homeland Canada, where he pleaded guilty to one count of "Conspiracy to manufacture marihuana".

This is not Libya, or Afghanistan, or Iraq, or Syria, or Grenada, or any of the smaller powers we have chosen to make war on.
