Very sorry to be late on this....The great Jack Herer, tireless cannabis activist and author of the best seller The Emperor Wears No Clothes died in Oregon on thursday April 15.
In July 2000 Jack suffered a minor heart attack and a major stroke, resulting in difficulties speaking and moving the right side of his body. He mostly recovered (he said thanks to a 'therapy' based on Amanita muscaria...), but he got another heart attack shortly after an appearance at the Portland Hempstalk festival last September.
We will not forget this father of the cannabis legalization movement, we will keep up the good fight while hopefully celebrating in his name with the powerful 'Jack Herer' strain of herb that was named after him.
Thanks Jack, rest in peace...
