A Vancouver entrepreneur and marijuana activist wants Americans to boost local tourism by coming north to get higher as the Canadian dollar gets lower.

“Hello, American would-be visitors, weed here is $3.50 to $8 US a gram,” Marc Emery posted to Instagram on Thursday as Canada’s dollar continued to plunge — dropping from about par to the U.S. dollar two years ago to 79 cents on Friday.

“I don’t think it’s occurring to (American tourists) that they can come up to Canada now, in the last six weeks, and have a holiday at a much greater discount than ever before,” the self-styled “Prince of Pot” told the Sunday Province on Saturday.
