The murder has a mitigating circumstance of impaired judgment at the time of the murde. Therefore, the death penalty should not given in this case.

Marc Emery, known as Canada's Prince of Pot, sold marajuana seeds over the internet. US law enforcement authorities wanted him in jail real bad and after quite some time they got their wish.
Canada's current govt agreed with his extradition and sent him to the US where Emery will serve a 5-10 yr sentence.
For years and years Emery sold seeds in Canada. He had been busted a few times on possession charges here but nothign ever serious. Over time, cops in the province of British Columbia seem to not care about him anymore.
Emery began selling seeds both to store customers and over the net, raking in some serious money.
Funny thing is, he was honest to pay taxes to govt on his income and even reported himself under occupation as a "marajuana seed producer" He paid over $300,000 in one yr alone in income taxes!!
No one bothered him until the US govt came knocking on the door. Canada's current govt caved in and handed him over....but it doesn't make sense that for yrs while he sold seeds and paid taxes here the Canadian govt never had a prob with him until but yet agreed with sending him to the US auhtorities.
Anyways, do you think the US govt will intervene and give clememcy to a death row inmate who is a Canadian citizen? No, I doubt it....but my govt will hand over one of us to US authorites in a heartbeat....maybe we should have used Marc Emery as a bargaining chip.
