Nature is the Answer. Always Has Been – Always Will Be.

Jack Herer, also known as ‘The Hemperor,’ offered a $100,000 challenge to the world to prove him wrong.

The Challenge: $100,000

If all fossil fuels and their derivatives, as well as trees for paper and construction were banned in order to save the planet, reverse the greenhouse effect and stop deforestation; Then there is only one known annually renewable resource that is capable of providing the overall majority of the world’s paper and textiles; meet all of the world’s transportation, industrial, and home energy needs – while simultaneously reducing pollution, rebuilding the soil, and cleaning the atmosphere all at the same time…And that substance is – the same one that did it all before – Cannabis Hemp – Marijuana.

Sponsored by: H.E.M.P. (America), HANF HAUS (Germany), SENSI SEEDS/HASH MARIJUANA MUSEUM (Holland), and T.H.C., THE TEXAS HEMP CAMPAIGN (America) Visit Jack Herer’s website for more details:

If you can prove him wrong, you will be $100,000 richer. (Jack Herer – June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010) Rest in peace, Sir. Your work and dedication will forever be admired by millions.

The reason Jack put such a large sum of money up in this challenge is because it’s impossible to prove him wrong – because he’s right. Each of the examples he gives in this challenge can be broken down into many subsections.

A three-inch, pencil sized spike was then placed into each hole of the frame. The spikes were attached to the top bunk and the holes were in the bottom bunk. Insert spike into the hole and, presto, bunk beds.
Being the adventurous kids that we were – we took apart the two frames. (No more fighting over top bunk) The small wooden sticks had to be broken off the top bunk so that it could lay flat on the ground. This also left the 4 open holes on the bottom bed.
Of course, being a kid, that means you see what you can put in there, right? How about a freshly sharpened pencil?
Apparently, that was my thought process. I don’t recall anything about how the pencil got there or even who put it there. All I know is that it was there with a sharpened lead tip facing up.
