Cannabis Activism Oral History Project

Well-known marijuana prohibition activists such as Mary (Brownie Mary) Rathbun, Dr. Tod Mikuriya and Jack Herer have passed away and along with them their own stories and histories on their work to legalize medical marijuana. Many other early activist’s stories are at risk of being lost if no effort is undertaken to record them. The 420 Archive is interviewing those on the front lines of the movement in the 60s and 70s making sure their memories of events are recorded and preserved.
