The Hemperor, Jack Herer has Died

The global cannabis community mourns the loss of the great Jack Herer.

Jack Herer
The one and only Jack Herer will be missed forever.

(SALEM, Ore.) – The sad news has been confirmed. Jack Herer, author of Emperor Wears No Clothes and renowned around the world for hemp activism, has died at 11:17 a.m. today, in Eugene, Oregon.

Jack Herer suffered a heart attack last September just after speaking on stage at the Portland HempStalk festival. The last seven months have proven to be a huge challenge to the man, with several health issues making his recovery complicated.

Jack Herer’s health has been poor lately, this last week there have been reports of the severity, and an outpouring of prayers on his behalf.

“It’s shocking news, even after these last seven, trying months,” said Paul Stanford, THCF Executive Director.

“Jack Herer has been a good friend and associate of mine for over 30 years. I was there when he had the heart attack at our Hempstalk festival and I know he wouldn’t appreciate the quality of life he’s endured these last months. Still he will be greatly missed. I honor his memory.”

“No other single person has done more to educate people all across the world about industrial hemp and marijuana as Jack Herer. His book is translated into a dozen different languages, it’s a bestseller in Germany,” added Stanford.

“The Hempstalk stage will forever be the Jack Herer Memorial stage. And, a Memorial is planned to be built where he fell that day,” Stanford said.

“His legacy will continue to inspire and encourage for generations to come.”

420~ CANNABIS AS ART
Cannabis has long been used for fiber (hemp), for medicinal purposes, and as a recreational drug.
Medical use
there has been considerable interest in its use for the treatment of a number of conditions, including glaucoma, AIDS wasting, neuropathic pain, treatment of spasticity associated with multiple sclerosis, and chemotherapy-induced nausea. A recent study has also concluded that cannabinoids found in Cannabis might have the ability to prevent Alzheimer’s disease. THC has been shown to reduce arterial blockages.
Currently he FDA does facilitate scientific investigations into the medical uses of cannabis.
Recreational use
Cannabis is a popular recreational drug around the world, only behind alcohol, caffeine and tobacco.
In the United States alone, it is believed that over 100 million Americans have tried Cannabis, with an additional 25 million Americans using it within the past year.
According to the UK medical journal The Lancet, Cannabis has a lower rate of dependence compared to both nicotine and alcohol,
and any Cannabis withdrawal symptoms are typically mild and are never life-threatening.
Religious use
Cannabis has being referred to in India as “food of the gods”, eventually becoming a ritual part of the Hindu festival of Holi.
In Buddhism, cannabis has been used in meditation and regarded as a holy plant since 500 BC. Shamanic use of Cannabis in China has been dated to at least 1000 BC.
Anointing oils mentioned in Exodus are said to contain Cannabis. Sufis have used Cannabis in a spiritual context since the thirteenth century
In modern times the Rastafari movement has embraced Cannabis as a sacrament.
Cannabis as art & fetish
the fervor and devotion for cannabis throughout history can now be summed up with imagery and artworks depicting the ongoing passion & debate for cannabis.
