The B.C. Marijuana Party leader said Thursday if he's extradited to the U.S. to face drug charges, he'll never get out of prison alive.

Marc Emery spoke in Vancouver after a judge set Sept.16 for the start of his extradition hearing.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency wants Emery extradited on charges of drug trafficking and money laundering, claiming he sold marijuana seeds to Americans over the internet.

Emery said if he's sent to the U.S. he'll either die in jail or be murdered there.

He said all Canadians will be complicit if the U.S. succeeds in extraditing him because Canadians have tacitly condoned his behaviour.

Emery said he's been selling marijuana seeds for 11 years, during which time Canadians have benefited from the four million dollars he's given to various organizations.

He called the U.S. DEA "a Nazi-like military organization."
