Tommy to Host Benefit

News courtesy of 420 Times...
Four-time Grammy winner Tommy Chong will host a benefit for ailing cult folk hero Jack Herer Sept. 22 at Universal Studios. A long-time L.A. resident, the 61-year-old Herer is recovering from a stroke. He was stricken July 15 while speaking onstage at the World Hemp Festival in Oregon. His speech and right side are still impaired, leaving him unable to work. He is expected to attend the benefit. Author of the 1985 underground bestseller "The Emperor Wears No Clothes," Herer is regarded as the father of the modern hemp movement. He has campaigned tirelessly over the last three decades to promote the environmental and medical benefits of the cannabis plant. Last year, High Times magazine named him its Man of the Century.
