The late Jack Herer is an icon in the marijuana and hemp world. Strains are named after him, books have been written about him, and now, there is an effort to create a cannabis and hemp museum in his honor. The effort is being led by his wife, who has started a crowd funding page dedicated to opening the Jack and Jeannie Herer Cannabis and Hemp Museum. Below is more information. You can donate at this link here:
Hi everybody. I'm Jeannie Herer and my husband was the late great Jack Herer, one of the founding fathers of the Cannabis Hemp movement and author of "The Emperor Wears No Clothes," the bestselling book about the history and many uses of Cannabis Hemp. Please read it online free atwww.JackHerer.com.
Before Jack passed away in 2010, we were looking for a place to start a Cannabis Hemp museum and hemp gift shop. I have the whole history of the hemp movement, from the 1970's until now, in a storage unit in Las Vegas. People have been encouraging me for a long time to start a crowdfunder so I can get this going and now I'm finally doing it. Please feel free to contribute and help this historical museum come to life. We will also have many very cool counterculture exhibits.
Because Jack was well known, most people think we had a lot of money, and that I have a lot of money now, but this was all put back into the movement. We funded many initiatives to change the laws. I wish he could see how far we've come in the last few years.
I've had an extremely hard time making ends meet since Jack passed, and I can't afford the storage unit and would hate to lose all of this great historical stuff that needs to be shared with the world.
Please help if you can. All donors will have free admission to the museum and we'll have a special "Donor's Wall."
All donations will go towards helping me get back on my feet, saving all of the historical memorabilia, and starting up this great cannabis museum.
