J & J Herer Cannabis Hemp Museum

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 our historical memorabilia, and starting up this great cannabis museum.

I know lots of people can’t afford to donate and are barely getting by themselves. There are other ways to help besides donating money. One of my friends suggested sharing the fundraiser at least once a day on your Facebook or Twitter wall, and in at least one group. Also, if you see that someone else posted it, please “LIKE” it. That helps more people see it on their news-feeds. The way Facebook is set up, only about five percent of your friends see your posts unless more and more people start liking it. Doing all these small things will make it more visible, and closer to a viral posting, which will help attract more and more donors.

With your help, I’m going to make Jack’s dream come true and have a world class museum.

  • Hello Jeannie,
    I had this idea a couple years ago and originally it was to contact all the growers I could and ask them to donate the stocks of their plants from every grow to contribute to the building a cannabis research facility the likes of which the world has never seen and dedicate it to your late husband and Raphael Mechoulam because of the research and progress that has been kept from us but after reading this I think the idea is still quite good but that your museum should be at least part of it. My partner of 15 years and I have been collecting and drying the stocks of wild hemp for the last 7 years for this purpose. I have also contacted two growers in Colorado who are saving their stocks also. Space for storing the stocks is getting limited and we have not obtained a piece of appropriate real estate for the idea to materialize. Let me know what you think. I look forward to your thoughts. Thank you. Elizabeth Fearon
