The Emperor

I’m getting some unsetteling reports regarding the health of Jack Herer. Cannabis Culture icon and the aurthor and inspiration of the recent film project, that I had a small part in helping Melissa Balin put together, “The Emperor Wears No Clothes”.



Jack Herer’s vitals are getting stronger the outlook is very positive, Still not awake but the doctors say he is out of danger.

Following a heart attack at Hempstalk, angioplasty, Jack is in an induced coma and critical condition.


Its been announced by our friends at, that Jack Herer, who is perhaps the most well-known and best loved cannabis and hemp activist in the world, has suffered a massive heart attack whilst attending the ‘Hempstalk’ event in Portland Oregon on Saturday September 12th.

Jack was transported to hospital and was forced to undergo emergency ‘Angioplasty’ surgery to clear arterial blockages. His condition was said to be ‘critical’.

After giving an empassioned and well received speech on the virtues of hemp and cannabis, Jack was sitting down taking a breather when the heart attack struck.

A paramedic emergency crew was called and medical staff who were onsite at Kelly Point Park made Jack as comfortable as they could until the paramedics arrived.

Whilst the bands played on and the boisterous crowd cheered the guest speakers, little did they know that only a few hundred feet from where they were enjoying the Hempstalk proceedings, the man many people had travelled thousands of miles to hear speak, was fighting for his life.

The paramedic team stabilized Jack as best they could then quickly transported him by ambulance, to the Emanuel Trauma Center in Portland.

Jack’s condition was said to be ‘critical’ as he arrived at the medical facility with his son at his side. The diagnoses of a heart attack was confirmed soon after and Jack was taken straight to the operating theatre for life-saving surgery.

Our thoughts are with Jacks wife Jeannie, and we pray for a full and speedy recovery for a man who is beyond legendary with a cannabis and hemp community which spans the globe.

Jack’s book, The Emperor Wears No Clothes is the first and the largest account of the real story of marijuana and the techniques used by big money corporations to demonize and criminalize it. SOURCE

    Jack Herer about a year ago became my HERO, I was inspired by his book “the emperor Wears No Clothes” wich is also now made in to a short film I was asked to be a part of. Jack inspired me to start my mission of helping educate the world why we should Hemp the planet. That with legalization of industrial or commercial hemp we can help save our planet! Also I have been inspired to Help the world learn about Ricky Simpson’s Hemp Oil that cures Cancer that Jack is a big supporter of and actually uses the Oil and it has personally helped bring back Jack’s speech, He can walk and get around! I pray for jack on a quick recovery so he can continue to Help Hemp the planet!

    […] “Hemperor” Jack Herer, is in critical condition. If you read the news, see here, he suffered a heart attack at a legalization hemp fest in Portland, […]

  11. Eco Green Says:

    Politicians are 10 years behind the times when it comes to hemp use. People have been fighting for a long time against marijuana and pot prohibition with some movement going on now. Still too slow for those caught up in the jail system for possessing a little weed. Our freedoms have been trampled on by folks who know nothing about how beautiful cannabis can be for someones life, if one learns how to grow cannabis. Keep up the good work.
