OTTAWA — Marc and Jodie Emery, Canada's royal couple of marijuana, plan to take their drug-reform fight global after Marc returns home from the U.S. a free man.

Soon after Marc walks across the Ambassador Bridge from Detroit into Windsor, Ont., Tuesday afternoon, Jodie said the couple will fly to Ireland and Spain on sponsored speaking gigs.

Jodie has waited over four years for her husband, once the largest supplier of marijuana seeds to the U.S., to finish his sentence for conspiracy to manufacture marijuana.

Dubbed the Prince of Pot, Marc made millions selling his seeds across the border from his British Columbia-based company and drew the ire of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency, which successfully got him extradited from Canada in 2010.


HOW HAVE POT LAWS CHANGED SINCE EMERY'S ARREST?
