Jack Herrer is dead, God rest his soul, this is a terrible loss to all of us. May he rest in peace, Amen.
He died Thursday, at age 70. He had been suffering from complications following a recent stroke, and had collapsed backstage from a heart attack following a speech calling for decriminalization in September. (@ Seattle Hemp Fest, Christchurch's Sister City! /Blair)
Jack was the author of "The Emperor Wears No Clothes
", a scholarly work that taught many of us about the history of cannabis and the origins of the so-called "War On Drugs
", and is widely considered as "MUST" reading for hemp activist's in the English-language speaking world.
His spouse, Jeanie has said that funeral arrangements will be announced shortly.
I praise this man and will openly mourn his passing. He taught me so very very much, and deserves a hero's burial.
Sincerely Yours In Revolutionary Struggle,
Chris "The Anarchist" Ryan, (Yippie!)
