The return of Sir Talk-A-Lot

It's Friday morning, and Marc Emery is eating breakfast in a downtown hotel.

At first, there's seems nothing noteworthy about this. Apart from the fact that the London native is quite possibly the world's leading marijuana activist -- a man who has been targeted for extradition by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration and who has returned to his hometown to see a new play about his life -- there seems little out of the ordinary.

Only later, after following Emery around the city for five hours, does it occur to me how extra-ordinary this moment is.

Because right now, Emery is silent.
