Canada’s ‘Prince of Pot’ pleads guilty in Seattle

SEATTLE – Canada’s so-called Prince of Pot has pleaded guilty to a drug charge in exchange for a five-year prison term.

Marc Emery appeared in U.S. District Court in Seattle on Monday after being extradited last week from Vancouver, British Columbia. He sold millions of marijuana seeds to U.S. customers before his arrest in 2005.

He pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to manufacture marijuana in exchange for an agreed sentence of five years in prison. He is to be sentenced in August, and prosecutors or Emeray may withdraw from the plea deal if the judge issues a different sentence.
