Well-known Vancouver pot activist arrested in extradition bid by U.S.

Macleans, Canada

The search warrant said Emery, Gregory Williams and Michelle Rainey-Fenkarek are wanted in the U.S. to face charges of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana, conspiracy to distribute marijuana seeds and conspiracy to engage in money laundering.

Williams and Rainey-Fenkarek were arrested by police in Vancouver, Jeff Sullivan, chief of the criminal division of the U.S. Attorney's Office, told a news conference in Seattle.

Sullivan said the United States is seeking the extradition of Emery, Williams and Rainey-Fenkarek on the charges after they were indicted by a federal grand jury in May following an 18 month investigation by American police into the sale of marijuana seeds on the internet and by mail.

Rod Benson, the special agent in charge of the Drug Enforcement Agency in Seattle, contended at the news conference that Emery showed "overwhelming arrogance and abuse of the rule of law," which he said "will no longer be on display or tolerated."
