Emperor

Cleaning up around the house, I ran across some of my old graphics files.  This is one I made for the medical cannabis movement.

A lot of people don’t realize that cannabis (a/k/a marijuana) was considered legal medicine for a very, very, very long time.  The American Medical Association was the last hold-out on denying it’s medicinal value.
I recommend the book “The Emperor Wears No Clothes” by Jack Herrer, bless his soul.

THE book….a must read!

Jack spent the greater part of his life trying to educate the world and wrote what I believe is the definitive history of cannabis. By the time I met him, the book had been published already for several years and was in the midst of yet another revision to include new information…which at the time included all the Prop 215 information.

Any one interested in finding out more about him, just click this link:

I’ve worked in the movement since the mid ’90s.  Jack and so many others have been at it all their lives, so I’m a relative “newbie.”  These other guys have been through the ringer.

They were on the front lines when a person could really get a life sentence for a joint, let alone a cannabis seed!  Can you imagine, not too many years ago….in this very country…people were incarcerated for such a thing.

Well…a lot of people are still in prison from those charges of that long ago and should be released.  Personally I believe that a majority of the marijuana offenders should be released….the old laws were a form of legalized brutality. We’ve come a long way since then..and still have a long way to go! 

I am amazed that we’ve politicized cannabis as much as we have in our society, and hope that enough people read Jack’s book so they can help right the wrongs and restore the lives the bad laws helped destroy.

For today, Fifty Five Is The New Emperor….Jack Herrer….friend, warrior, activist.
