VANCOUVER -- Police have raided a business run by the head of the B.C. Marijuana Party in Vancouver -- and looks like the raid was ordered by the U.S.
Leader Marc Emery was not at the marijuana seed store when it was raided by police earlier today.
But police say he has been arrested in Halifax.
A store employee says police arrived with a search warrant shortly before 11 am.
The charges outlined in the warrant indicate it is on behalf of the American government.
Emery and two other people are accused of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana, conspiracy to distribute seeds, and money laundering.
