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 Trillion Dollar Crop 
http://www.amazon.com/dp/0979376564?tag=cureworks-20

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. 

HEMP FOR VICTORY!

To thegreenchazzan

thegreenchazzan I agree that there are a lot of poverty pimps in the marijuana movement. However, I must ask - Do you have a clue about how much Dr. Jeri Rose has done for the movement over the last quarter century?

Your post reflects anger because she can't do more. That's just evil designed to tear down good folks, which I pray is not your intention.

Dr. Rose has given so much, taking nothing for herself and went damn near broke helping many good souls to get to this legalization point. I have not known her to take as much as credit for much of her work. Her work on medical marijuana and cancers, as in the kinds that are here and coming from Fukushima's triple nuclear meltdown, is priceless. Her work with Sister Somayah Kambui helped double Somayah's lifespan with sickle cell. Dr. Jeri helped the late Jack Herer and Richard M. Davis of the USA Hemp Museum get their messages out. Your post reads like you are mad at her for not having more to give.

Do you really think she's making money off the marijuana legalization movement? If so, please explain how.

Do you have a clue about how much she has done for the movement over the last quarter century? If not, ask some of the rest of us old school activists before marijuana was in vogue.

Don't you understand that after one has donated everything they have to the movement there is nothing left to give?

Dr. Rose's work on medical marijuana and cancers, as in the kinds that are here and coming from Fukushima's triple nuclear meltdown, is priceless. Her work with Sister Somayah Kambui doubled Somayah's lifespan with sickle cell.

Please reconsider terrorizing and demeaning the good folks in the movement because they don't have any more money to give at this time. The real question about Jeanie Herer is why isn't she getting the money from Jack's book sales, profitable dispensaries and organizations collecting money for legalization?
