The 420 Times Cannabis Hall Of Fame: Jack Herer
Joe | Jan 09, 2011 | Comments 0
The first inductee in our brand new Cannabis Hall Of Fame is the legendary Jack Herer. Born in New York City in 1939, Jack arguably did more for the cannabis law reform movement than any other individual in its history.
Author of the incredibly influential The Emperor Wears No Clothes – which has sold more than 600,000 copies worldwide – Jack was a tireless campaigner for cannabis rights and the legalization of hemp.
Jack passed away on April 15th, 2010. He will be sorely missed, but his spirit lives on in the movement he helped create.
When contacted by us and told Jack would be the first inductee into our Hall of Fame, his widow Jeannie had the following to say:
Thank you, Joe. Jack would feel very honored to be your first inductee. He would want everyone to work toward the release of non-violent cannabis prisoners and to get his initiative on the ballot. The initiative wording is at www.jackherer.com. Thanks again for all you’re doing.
Now enjoy some wisdom from the man himself. We all miss you Jack.
