Introduction by Valerie Corral, founder of WAMM
MC Rose Bruno
Author of the 1985 underground bestseller The Emperor Wears No Clothes, Jack Herer is considered the father of the modern hemp movement. He is revered as the tenacious crusader who brought back hemp from the brink of extinction.
In a Hollywood gala event in 2000, Herer was honored with a benefit by Tommy Chong, comedian and four-time Grammy winner. In 1999 a 59-minute documentary film “The Emperor of Hemp” was released about Herer’s life and his struggle to write his famous book. The film was narrated by Academy Award-winner Peter Coyote.
A former Goldwater Republican, Herer has dedicated his life to educating people about the history and many uses of hemp, and to ending marijuana prohibition.
