So if you remove the gun he would be in jail for 40 years?

I think I’d have to know a lot more about the case and his history.

There are dozens of these cases where they get 40, 50 years.. sometimes due to repeat offense or ‘having a dangerous weapon’. The judges have no discretion because of Congress and their federal minimum sentences:

For selling seeds. And there are a lot more cases like this;

Marc Emery won’t be the only person in a US prison for selling seed over the internet. In Fort Wayne, Indiana a judge has sentenced a man to six years in a federal prison for selling marijuana seeds over the Internet. 30-year-old Jesse Groth sent seeds around the world from his northeastern Indiana home.
