The Father Of Marijuana Media
Every day is a good day to take Time 4 Hemp.
Casper Leitch – program host.
Casper Leitch got involved in the Hemp Movement in 1990 when he was hired by Jack Herer to run Jack’s office. Casper launched the cable television series ‘TIME 4 HEMP’ on January 5, 1991. Time 4 Hemp is the first TV series in the history of broadcasting to focus strictly on the topic of cannabis. This has given Casper the dubious honor of being ‘The Father Of Marijuana Television’.
