Jody Emery (via cannabisculture.com): Marc is currently in SeaTac Federal Detention Center, or SeaTac FDC, and has access to the federal prisoner “email” system CorrLinks.
He is able to send messages and has written me five times already! He requested that I share this email so people can get an idea of what it’s been like for him so far.
To send Marc mail or money in prison, which will make his sentence much more bearable, please click here for the mailing address and other information.
