The self-styled “Prince of Pot” has a new political target.
Marc Emery is wading into debates over marijuana legalization happening in the Conservative leadership contest.
With Conservative leadership hopeful Kellie Leitch pledging to undo marijuana legalization if she becomes PM, Emery is urging supporters to vote for Maxime Bernier.
Emery first made that endorsement back in the fall — but now he’s backed it up with a party membership.
In a post on Facebook, Emery says “as a card-carrying member of the Conservative Party, I will do all I can to make sure Kellie Leitch never becomes leader.”
During the last federal election, the Prince of Pot backed Justin Trudeau…who is set to announce his government’s plans for marijuana legalization Thursday.
