Jack Herer Green Pilled the World
Celebrate today's high holiday with the story of Jack Herer—the man, the myth, and the strain that changed the weed game forever. This is the legendary tale of how a cannabis-hating rightwing military police officer had his life transformed forever the first time he got high (really, really high) off some Acapulco Gold and became the leading voice of the weed resistance. From writing his classic cannabis conspiracy book The Emperor Wears No Clothes, to rediscovering a US government propaganda film called Hemp for Victory, to traveling the country tirelessly with his band of cannabis evangelists, this one-man movement inspired an entire generation of activists and agitators and helped usher in the beginning of the end of the War on Weed. If you only know Jack Herer the incredible strain of cannabis, well, then, you don't know Jack. But you will after experiencing this special live episode, recorded at the Green Street building in Los Angeles. Very special thanks to our sponsors for this episode, High 90s, Podtones, Big Pete's Treats and Heavy Hitters.
