‚ÄčThe Jack Herer documentary, Emperor of Hemp will be the featured film on Firedoglake.com’s Movie Night Monday October 25, beginning at 8 p.m. (Eastern Time) and ending at 9:30 p.m.

A story on the film by Lisa Derrick will begin at 8 o’clock and kick off a live online chat with Director Jeff Jones and Writer/Producer Jeff Meyers.
“Firedoglake’s Just Say Now campaign has been instrumental in supporting medical and recreational marijuana legalization initiatives this political season,” Meyers told Toke of the Town on Monday.
When we lost cannabis activist Herer on April 15, he passed into the hallowed hall of hemp history, a man who devoted his life to the cause of marijuana freedom.
Jack pledged to fight every day of his life until either cannabis was legal, he was dead, or until he turned 84. He took the pledge very seriously and never stopped fighting, giving an impassioned speech at Hempstalk 2009 and then collapsing with the heart attack that ended up taking his life a few months later.
