Jack Herer's Recovery

Thanks to a rousing Call To Action by Freedom Fighter, Richard Eastman, answered by Medical Marijuana Inc., Northwest Holistic Health, & Apothecary Genetics, we raised $2,000 yesterday at the Jack Herer's Call To Action Panel during the 1st Medical Marijuana Educational Expo at the LA Convention Center Theatre, on Sunday, January 17th!

My eyes teared up while I moderated the panel, to see attendees of this important Symposium, step up in the midst of the panel itself to bring up 100s and 20s... bringing the total amount raised for Jack's Recovery Fund during the unprecedented 2-day event hosted by America's first publicly traded Marijuana company- to a heartwarming $2,460!!!!

Since the bureaucracy of medical & legal red tape is holding up Jack Herer's finances, and slowing the very progression of his recuperation, it is really beautiful to see this compassionate community uniting together to support one of its fallen heroes in a serious time of need.

We spoke with Jeannie Herer via telephone during the conference, and she thanks everyone for their support during this incredibly difficult time, and wants you to know that this will move Jack forward to a private care environment, where he will be able to receive the Special Care we all know is integral to his recuperation.

In order to maintain his situation, several brands will be donating a portion of their proceeds to Jack Herer's Recovery Fund (Note: this is a private fund, NOT eligible for tax-write off). Thanks to BalinYoga for being the first to volunteer this show of support! Through the end of February, BalinYoga will donate 10% of every sale of The Golden Answer DVD towards the Recovery Fund of Civil Rights Activist, Jack Herer, while he recuperates from his recent heart attack. Please support the vendors that are supporting Jack in his time of need, and tell a friend:

  1. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! We're still looking for a bariatric bed. Some friends thought they had found one but it turned out to be a single size and Jack needs a larger size (48 inch wide). If anyone knows where to get one for a good price, please let us know.
