This November 2, Prop 19 is on the ballot in CA along medical marijuana initiatives in AZ, OR and SD. A generation ago this would have been inconceivable, and marijuana advocates owe a great deal to Jack Herer whose landmark 1979 book The Emperor Has No Clothes yanked the sheets off marijuana and hemp prohibition. An advocate for legalization, Jack converted from a square john to an enlightened political activist after blowing a couple reefers. No wonder the government wants weed banned!
The Emperor of Hemp is Jack Herer’s story; the story a plant and a country; and the story of governmental hypocrisy, racism, and greed.
