Jodie's New Purse


Every week on Cannabis Culture, Jodie will post a video update of Marc’s current prison situation. Marc Emery is serving 5 years in American prison for only selling marijuana seeds and putting the majority of profits back into ending prohibition. Considering greed and racism caused others to become criminals in the government’s eyes, Marc’s pro-pot activism landed him in a really upsetting situation. 


Marc mailed a purse to Jodie that the inmates made entirely of folded chip bags and other trash. Now that’s weed and fashion. 

Many of the inmates enjoy being creative and are artists. Over the past few months Jodie has received plenty of personalized gifts, which keep getting more incredible. I cannot wait to see what else they create!

  3. Last week I saw a photo of Marc holding large envelops under his arm, and the caption read something about having a brief case for all of his paper work. Really hoping that somehow this is created using nothing as well!
