Green Party Siren Jodie Emery Targets Wally Oppal The Prohibitionist

She's an editor of Cannabis Culture magazine, she's 24 years old, she supported U.S. presidential candidate Ron Paul, and she's married to pot crusader Marc Emery. She's Jodie Emery, and the Georgia Straight has learned that she will run for the B.C. Green party against B.C. attorney general Wally Oppal in Vancouver-Fraserview in May.

"There is a lot that needs to be said that he needs to hear," Emery told the Straight by phone. "He used to be a bit more progressive, but he's since turned to become more prohibitionist and [is] supporting the policing, even though he and everyone can see that hasn't worked thus far. I think I will have a good time discussing some of these issues--gang violence and prohibition and organized crime--with Wally Oppal. I am quite excited about it."

B.C. Green party deputy leader Damian Kettlewell, who confirmed he is running in his newly created home riding of Vancouver-False Creek, said Emery "has got the full package".
