Jack Herer, born on June 18, 1939, and passing away on April 15, 2010, was a prominent American cannabis rights activist, famously dubbed the "Emperor of Hemp." He was the author of the influential 1985 book "The Emperor Wears No Clothes," a pivotal work in the cannabis legalization movement. Herer also founded and led the organization Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP). As a passionate advocate for cannabis decriminalization, Herer argued fervently for the plant's versatile uses as a renewable source of fuel, medicine, food, fiber, and paper/pulp. He emphasized its potential to be cultivated globally for both medicinal and economic purposes. Herer was a staunch critic of the U.S. government, asserting that it had deliberately concealed evidence of cannabis' myriad uses from the public, a stance that made him a central figure in the advocacy for cannabis rights and policy reform.
