Hemp Hero Dr. Jeri Rose - Setting The Record Straight

There is so much mis-information in the modern marijuana movement it's scary some days.  Some folks are profiting handsomely while many of the folks who have been working on this issue for decades are thrown out like old dishwater, called greedy and frauds.  This post is to help set the record straight about hemp hero Dr. Jeri Rose, whose contributed money, skills, ideas, organizational talents, etc. for decades and now lied on terribly by someone who obviously does not know her.  

I was reading an article called Narc vs. Narc about the players in the modern medical marijuana game.  I tried posting in the comments section but they refuse to put up my comments in response to the slanderous remarks posted there which can be summarized in one sentence.

“Therefore, Dr. Rose you are a fraud and greedy like the rest of the greedy tribe you are with. You were not even born when we started this movement.” Madeleine Johnson

Here's Madeleine's full post - by the way the man's name,who pioneered Dr. Rose's support in many ways during the last century too, is Jack Herer:

"Shame on you to use Jack Here name. You are not honoring him. If you honored him then his wife, Jeanne Here would not be suffering today. Not one dime of your so called Jack Here Honore money is going toward helping her. The Pioneers should not be the only one to keep her out of poverty. Therefore, Dr. Rose you are a fraud and greedy like the rest of the greedy tribe you are with. You were not even born when we started this movement. In addition you need to take classes from Dr. Abrams at US Berkley to learn the truth about Medical Marihuana.[Historical Note - Dr. Lester Grinspoon has been a marijuana doctor since the 1960's and Dr. Abrams did not graduate from med school until 1977] Dr. Abrams is the real Pioneer doctor of Medical Marihuana and we’ll recognized by the Federal Goverment. You on the other hand is a Quack."

Below is the response (a couple of grammatical corrections from the original) that has not yet been approved by the folks who published the article at The Green Pulpit Narc vs. Narc on July 16, 2014. 

'You must not know about Dr. Jeri Rose.  What “we” are you referring to who started this movement since it began with the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937? Since Dr. Rose has been consulted with frequently by many movers and shakers in the medical and industrial marijuana movements, how is she a fraud?  Dr. Rose has not charged anyone I know of in the movement for her constant, accurate advice, so how is she greedy?

I thank God for haters because it’s usually the step before they become appreciators.  The work and other contributions of Dr. Jeri Rose is legendary among many hemp researchers.

Dr. Rose is a hemp activist since 1989 where she worked to get the hemp message onto national television three years in a row by marching in the Doo Dah Parade in 1989, 1990 and 1991.  I’ve known Dr. Rose since 1999 when we met working with Sister Somayah Kambui producing the first Los Angeles Million (now Global) Marijuana March.  Dr. Rose was instrumental in helping Sister Somayah research and organize Somayah’s work with medical marijuana and sickle cell.  Somayah was able to double her life expectancy using marijuana to help manage her sickle cell.  Their work got sickle cell listed on Prop. 215’s list of approved medical conditions for medical marijuana with Somayah’s life standing as proof of the “theory”. Dr. Rose remained an adviser to Somayah way beyond the point of Somayah being the first acquittal of marijuana charges under Prop. 215.

Over the years, I've witnessed since 1999 Dr. Rose has helped many independent activists.  Her generosity in various research communities is priceless.  She is NOT a fraud nor greedy.  My experience of her is she has not taken any money for the work she has done for Jack Herer, Richard M. Davis and countless others in the marijuana movement, Dr. Rose is not greedy and she knows her shit.

Dr. Rose has shared insights with me over the years that expanded the research exponentially.  Her brilliance is instrumental in the works;

Even throughout the years of 2005-9 she helped translate formal scientific concepts for the books by the late USA Hemp Museum’s founder and curator, Richard M. Davis

Hemp For Victory:  A Global Warming Solution

Hemp For Victory:  The Wonder Herb

Hemp For Victory: The Trillion Dollar Crop

There are links to the above books as free .pdfs and more that Dr. Rose has been contributing to on the blog page

Keep in mind that’s just the little bit I know about, can testify to from direct experience concerning the impact of her contributions. There are many, many more I’ve only heard of.

In case I failed to make my point, Dr. Jeri Rose is NOT a fraud nor greedy.  She is a good, generous, intelligent soul who has dedicated a large part of her adult life to not only ending the drug war but implementing the hemp solution to many modern problems.  She’s done better than the best she could to accomplish and implement the mission of hemp for victory. I’m learning to accept that for some people no matter what one does it will never be enough.

To understand the greed in the modern marijuana movement, as in has the money and is not sharing it with the folks who helped make it possible resulting in a reality that has some in mansions and others living out of their vans, I suggest a re-read of this excellent article NARC VS. NARC 2: THE CALIFORNIA CANNABIS COUP D’ETAT

Follow the money and please, please, please ask those with funds to support Jeannie HererJeff ClarkDana Beal Consider re-directing the energy put into hating on a soul who gave everything she had in the last century plus, (and is still working the best she can with what she has) into positive steps to end the drug war now. Falsely accusing hemp heroes is a big waste of time and energy.  

BTW Madeleine Johnson, your link is not working, and I recommend folks do a search for your name, marijuana. Thank you for the good works you have done to stop the drug war too. Love and prayers to you and yours.'

The video below is of Dr. Rose at Jack Herer's funeral...runs 3:38.-6:58

I, J. Nayer Hardin, founder of and a conductor on the Computer Underground Railroad, stand in gratitude for the decades of hard and brilliant work that Dr. Jeri Rose has contributed to what seems today as a no brainer, stopping the drug war and implementing the hemp solution now.

Los Angeles Global Marijuana March 2014, 16th Annual

When:May 3, 2014, 10a gathering at Leimert Park ’till dusk – Get your smoke on!
Event Highlights:10a-12 Noon: Coffee and Reefer (Mud & Bud) in the morningwith like minded souls – Participants available for press interviewsHigh Noon: March Starting at and returning to the park(Construction on Crenshaw Subway makes original route inaccessible)1p: Speakers & Music & Crafts & Foods & Fun & Great Marijuana4-5p: 4:20 Ceremony & Positive Vibes to Achieve Hemp For VictoryEvent Conclusion: Dusk
Why:So we can implement the hemp solution to modern problems.

This year’s historic, 16th Annual Los Angeles Global Marijuana March and Rally is being held on Saturday, May 3, 2014, 10 a.m. – Dusk at Leimert Park.
The last minute change regarding the march was instituted by the City of Los Angeles, who called event producer R. W. Akile on April 30th and said ‘due to construction obstructions caused by building the Crenshaw subway underneath the march route, the traditional path would not be available because of last minute safety issues.’  Their original suggestion was to postpone the march, but the whole purpose is on the same day to unify marijuana activists speaking with one voice about the need to stop the war on drugs so We The People can be free.
So in response, the event is being held at Leimert park starting at 10a with a march in the area beginning at High Noon, returning to the park for part two of the rally.
There is a  Facebook Page for the event in Los Angeles too! As we learn more it will be shared here and elsewhere.
This march is a tradition, a celebration in the greater LA marijuana, hemp, cannabis, pot, weed, ganga, Mary Jane, etc. legalization community.  The event was started and produced by legendary members of the Los Angeles marijuana movement many speaking at the events over the years.

The first Los Angeles Million Marijuana March was produced by the late Sister Somayah KambuiRichard M. Davis and Jim Rosenfield plus many other activists in 1999. The event itself goes back to the great marijuana and Ibogaine freedom fighter Dana Beal's “Million Marijuana March” in New York City, which in response to the magical events there, expanded in this century to become the Global Marijuana/Cannabis March held in hundreds of locations all over the world on the same day. It was Dana who approached Somayah to do the first of the Million Marijuana March series in Los Angeles. Somayah, Richard and Jim worked for the remainder of their lives to keep the annual event going.  

Because in great part of the tireless activism of many hemp heroes, some of whom will be producing and at the rallies including R. W. Akile, Jeff Clark, Patrick Moore, Jeanette Perez, Melissa Balin and countless others, many to be listed in future blog posts.  We've come a long way hemp babies, and we still have a long way to go.  Which is why now, with the victories in thee pro legalization states, including this, California, one of the first in the nation to legalize medical marijuana it is important to show up, say your piece, and network with like minded souls.

This year's event is ever bigger in a voice so loud 
that as it joins with others around the world 
to blow the lid off the drug war 
so WE THE PEOPLE OF EARTH can live freely to be our best selves.

Sister Somayah use to open up the rallies with her battle cry 'Don't Be Scared.' Dress up or just be comfortable. Come, and bring your friends and hemp plants if so inclined to the 16th Annual Global Marijuana March in Los Angeles or wherever you are on the first Saturday afternoon in May. Know that to do so is in defiance of a law system that wants so much control over our lives they interfere with our right to safely (as in NON-GMO) interact with plants. March in support of the end of the drug war and other non productive policies. If you can’t walk, cars are allowed, especially the theme on target decorated kind.
As shared joints tend to do, new bonds are formed, old ones secured, fun, knowledge and respect shared. Throughout their multi decade history, the marches and rallies thrived in an air of celebration of hemp in all its forms.
This is just an initial post on this year's events.  Checking in with folks and will be posting a lot more between now and May Day.  Just getting started so check back to this blog page for frequent updates.  This is going to be empowering! Get ready to fix this mess of modern society we have created with the hemp solution. 
Hemp is an awesome, non toxic technology that we should be using on a grand scale. It is imperative that we implement the hemp solution now i.e. Fukushima, fracking, GMOs, illnesses that cannabis cures, industrial uses (not counting 3D printing filament) via over 50,000 items from hemp bio-fuels, building materials, plastics, papers, foods, oils, dyes, fibers, buds (all of which can be used for 3D printing)…so many life improving & saving capabilities…no wonder it’s illegal. We can change this, we must change this now.

Time 4 Making Room on Time4Hemp, Casper Leitch, Al Byrne and Dr. Julian Romero Paredes

The doctor was in on Casper Leitch's Time4Hemp in a frank discussion of how cannabis can help with mental health and a call for more research in this vital area of the human experience.  Joint Host, Patients Out Of Time's Al Byrne and Joint Guest Dr. Julian Romero Paredes spoke truth regarding using marijuana to help heal mental health issues.

From those of us dealing with a loved one or more suffering from bipolar, schizophrenia, PTSD, SMI, Alzheimer's, (they forgot psychopathic) etc. mental health issues, this is deeply appreciated and an empowering information tool. Hemp can help with mental health issues.  Use the 'smoke another joint strategy.' Let cannabis calm and in many cases even cure troubled souls.  

When people are high on marijuana they tend to be not so violent and mean. Weed is also extremely helpful to caregivers too.

Revealed in this show is an explanation of an observation that there may be a connection between diabetes and Alzheimer's. They do a good job explaining it and the research needed to confirm or dismiss the obvious link. 

We must now unconditionally stop the drug war so people can freely use as much cannabis as needed to heal, prosper and live happy, healthy, hemped lives.  Did you know marijuana has been accused of making people laugh, even the sad and otherwise not centered?

Imagine the balance humanity will experience as the hemp solution is applied to mental health issues. 

Lay back, light up and listen to what these progressive medical professionals have to say about why we all know that it's Time4Hemp. Enjoy!

Below are the twitter posts from the discussion, most recent up top. I'm listening again.  When you visit Time4Hemp check out the hemp bridges that are being built on this international marijuana network.
