Time 4 Hemp is filling a void that traditional media hasn’t provided. The network has great focus. Professionalism with video interviews is important and EDUCATION is being provided where there previously was none. Keep up the creative genius, Casper Leitch, your work is amazing!

After being a guest on Time 4 Hemp a few times, I asked Casper Leitch if he’d like to be the Joint-Host on my weekly television series on Portland Community Cable. Some of the best segments of ‘Cannabis Common Sense’ were when he was on the show. If you get a chance, you can still find them on YouTube. You will also find me a lot in the Time 4 Hemp archives.

I met Casper Leitch in 1991 and have been impressed with his work as a cannabis activists ever since. Time 4 Hemp is an important resource and I hope that my being a reoccurring guest on his series draws attention to the broadcasting network.

I’ve enjoyed being a reoccurring guest on the network. Casper Leitch is one of the sharpest hosts in media. He is also funny when doing a show. I am able to relax and have fun as I get my facts and information presented on the show. I also love the music the network plays. It’s why I keep my iHeartRadio dial set to Time 4 Hemp.

The archives alone are a treasure-trove of knowledge.
Before agreeing to be a guest on Time 4 Hemp, I did some research about Casper Leitch. I discovered the man is a pioneer and true soldier in the cannabis legalization movement. I also found that everything you ever wanted to know about cannabis – good and bad – you can find out about at Time 4 Hemp. The more you visit, the more you learn – so, visit OFTEN.

Great programs to enjoy
when traveling on the road!
Casper’s shows are reliably informative and entertaining! We play his podcasts on the bus while on tour and a good discussion will always follow. Thanks to Casper Leitch for the many years he has dedicated to informing the masses about how wonderful a plant cannabis is!!! The whole band loves it when we hear our music playing on the Time 4 Hemp Broadcasting Network!

I would rather be uncomfortable with the truth than to be lied to in comfort. That’s just my nature.
I’ve found that I always hear the truth about cannabis when I take Time 4 Hemp.
When I was Governor of Minnesota, a friend of mine, I think it was a guy by the name of John Birrenbach, introduced me to Time 4 Hemp. As I listened to Casper Leitch and his guests, I began to learn about how marijuana makes the best bio-diesel fuel on the planet. How it grows 15 feet in summer, so it’s a great renewable resource. It makes better paper than wood does. It makes clothing. Medical-wise, it’s stopping seizures; it’s working for post-traumatic stress; they’re even finding that it’s curing cancer in certain cases. I mean, this is a remarkable plant. Now, for those that smoke it for recreation, you know, to feel good, what’s wrong with that? That’s just GOOD mental health. I had a great time as a guest on the network. The many hosts at Time 4 Hemp are also fighting to help our Military Veterans get access to medical marijuana WITH OUT having to give up all their other benefits. I give a big salute to everyone involved at the network. I just love all the work they do.

it still won’t sparkle like the Truth.
I met Casper Leitch at the 2010 Hempfest when he and I were guest speakers and I’ve been a big supporter of his network ever since. I enjoy being a guest on his show, it gives me a chance to introduce my products to the global marijuana movement without having to deal with any type of censorship. All of us at Hemp Shield make it a point to take Time 4 Hemp every day of the week.

We need more activists like Casper Leitch.
It’s an honor to fight along side him in the War On Drugs.
After being a guest on the Time 4 Hemp I felt inspired to start my own cannabis broadcasting network and now Casper and I are working together to let the world know that marijuana prohibition MUST END.

Time 4 Hemp helps to feed the mind.
The first time I saw Casper Leitch sit down and host a television series about how wonderful cannabis is I about fell off my chair. It was back in 1991 when it was taboo to even say the word ‘marijuana’ let alone produce a whole series about it. Casper is one of the hardest working activists that I know. If the Legalization Movement had 3 more people like him, the War On Drugs would have ended years ago.

Listen to this network and learn the facts.
In 1991, I was the first sitting Judge in the United States to publicly denounce marijuana prohibition. During that year, I found myself speaking on the same panel with Casper Leitch and Jack Herer at several different events. Over the years I’ve been a returning guest on Casper Leitch’s series and, due to my respect for his diligent work, I even joined the network a few years back.

Every place I’ve traveled to I’ve also enjoyed Time 4 Hemp.
I travel all around the world and at many places that I visit, Time 4 Hemp is considered ‘MUST LISTENING’ when keeping up to date with the Cannabis Movement. I had a lot of fun being a guest on the show and look forward to my next visit.

The War On Drugs is a tool to destroy our Freedoms.
You can discover how by listening to this network.
I’ve had a lot of interesting times as a reoccurring guest on Time 4 Hemp. Casper Leitch certainly knows his facts when it come to cannabis prohibition. As a former member of the DEA, I am most certain everyone in that agency is annoyed at this network because of the way it puts the TRUTH about prohibition in a very bright spot-light. When I became a member of the Law Enforcement Against Prohibition organization, one of the first interviews I did was with Casper. I’ve made it a point to listen-in at least once a day ever since.

Time 4 Hemp cuts through the BS
and deliverers the TRUTH about cannabis.
Casper Leitch is a dedicated and inspirational force in the movement to legalize cannabis. He has been a constant supporter of the work of all of the Freedom Fighters who are trying to end the War On Drugs. His continued efforts have inspired me and many others to become more active in our efforts and he provides so much information and links to information that I’ve already converted a few prohibitionists into legalizers and supporters of the legalization movement. Thank you Casper – Never stop cloud-surfing!

It’s NORML to enjoy taking time for marijuana.
It’s ALSO NORML to enjoy taking Time 4 Hemp.
It’s been an honor to call Casper my friend. He and I met in 1991 when he started working for Jack Herer. I’ve enjoyed being a guest on his show several times over the years and encourage every member of NORML to tune in and listen any chance they get.
Keith Stroup Founder of NORML.
I prescribe that you listen to this network
if your ears ache from hearing lies about cannabis.
I met Casper Leitch at the 1991 NORML Conference. He and I were both scheduled to speak at the conference and I agreed to sit down and be interviewed for his ground-breaking television series, Time 4 Hemp. He and I have been friends ever since and I am a big fan of the broadcasting network. I think everyone needs to take Time 4 Hemp every single day. If you get a chance to comb through the archives, you will find that I have been a reoccurring guests over the years. It’s been a fun way to be part of such an important body of work.

This broadcasting network is one
of the loudest voices in cannabis culture.
Casper Leitch is a tremendously self motivated and talented host. He has been a pioneer in the Medical Marijuana & Hemp movements and is loyal and dedicated to the Cause. When I called Jack Herer’s office way back in 1990 to order copies of ‘The Emperor Wears No Clothes’ to put on store shelves in Canada, it was Casper who answered the phone and took care of the shipment. We’ve been friends ever since. This network is HIGHLY recommended!

It was a real trip to be a guest on Time 4 Hemp. I tune in every week when I’m home and make it a point to encourage my friends to do the same. It’s a very informative broadcast. Casper Leitch is courageous. He puts everything on the line trying to end the prohibition of a plant. I certainly know what that’s like.

I first met Casper Leitch when my boss at the time, Marc Emery, ordered copies of the Time 4 Hemp television series for broadcasting in Canada back in 1991. Casper’s work in television inspired Marc and I to launch the website, Pot-tv.com a few years later. I’ve been a reoccurring on the network over the past 15-years and I encourage everyone to tune in and listen every day.
Chris Bennett Author of Cannabis and the Soma Solution.
I was so glad to find this network.
It is such an inspiration.
I found Casper Leitch’s website after extensive research into the cannabis industry from the 90’s onward – its an impressive body of work. His early pod-casts were one of a kind, that further inspired me to share my ever growing library of cannabis information as well!

Don’t be blinded by the Lies about marijuana.
Time 4 Hemp can help you see the Truth.
I was at Jack Herer’s house working on the 1990 California Hemp Initiative the day he hired Casper Leitch to take over the duties of his office. It was one of the best things Jack ever did for the Marijuana Movement. Casper has spent the rest of his Life steadfastly working to put the truth about cannabis in front of as many people around the world as he can. I love him. I love his network. You will too if you take Time 4 Hemp.

Taking Time 4 Hemp will help you to see 20/20.
I met Casper Leitch after watching him give a stirring speech at the 1991 National NORML Conference in Washington, DC. about ‘The Value of Hemp as a Cash Crop’. He gave me a copy of a book written by a friend of his, ‘The Emperor Wears No Clothes’ along with a few segments of his television series. After reading the book that Jack Herer wrote and watching Casper’s guests explain the history and facts about hemp, I decided to get involved and do what I could to let everyone know that it was time for hemp to make a comeback. The network executives at ABC-News refused to let me cover the topic on television but it was in my contract that I could talk about whatever I wanted to on my 30-min radio show as long as it was ‘family friendly’. I spent a couple of hours on the telephone with Casper and Jack to be sure I got my facts right and in the Autumn of 1991, I became the FIRST National Television News Correspondent to speak out in favor of the hemp plant and the need to end prohibition

So MANY voices have been heard
because of this network.
Casper Leitch has been a source of needed but little known information about the cannabis plant for untold numbers of people. His professional reputation, history of good work and passion for his mission are exemplary. Work with Casper if you get a chance – he’s a guy who makes things happen!
Dr Robert Melamede Founder of the Cannabis Awakening Foundation.
Being a guest on Casper’s show
gave my business a lot of exposure!
I just want to say what a pleasure it was to work with Casper Leitch. The man is a TRUE reporter. He treats everyone fair. I hope to work with him in the future!

Happiness is a skill. It requires effort and time.
I’m always happy to make the effort to find Time 4 Hemp.
When I was teaching at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Casper Leitch was a guest speaker on campus one evening in 1993. After his presentation on the importance of hemp as a cash crop, I made it a point to meet and chat with him. Since then, I’ve been a guest on the network and a fan of his work. I still make it a point to tune in a listen every chance I get – no matter where in the world I might be.

Casper Leitch is a REAL PRO at interviewing people and producing a cannabis radio series. He’s dedicated to helping others achieve their dreams and is an honest, trustworthy, funny, intelligent friend whose company I enjoy every time I’m a guest on any of the network programs.

I met Casper Leitch at the 2009 at the Treating Yourself Expo in Toronto Canada. He was a guest speaker at the event and the band and I were scheduled to perform shortly after. We became friends backstage and I can honestly say he is one of the hardest working advocates medical cannabis. His work in radio to reach an audience not familiar with hemp is an effective way to provide education on this subject to a global audience. It’s one of the many reasons we like hearing our songs played on the network.

The 1st time UNCENSORED truth about hemp
could be heard around the world!
I first met Casper Leitch when I was visiting with Jack Herer in 1990. When Casper began producing his television series, I got a copy of every segment and showed them on a continuous loop at the Amsterdam Hemp Museum. After watching the first segment featuring Chris Conrad, I knew it was the beginning of getting the truth about hemp into the main-stream media. As a host, Casper is funny and smart. As an activists, he is a brave pioneer.

Marijuana is best when shared with friends.
Casper is a great friend of the Legalization Movement.
When my husband, Marc Emery, first heard about the book, ‘The Emperor Wears No Clothes‘ written by Jack Herer back in 1990 he called Jack’s office to order 20 cases. It was Casper Leitch who answered the phone and took care of the order. When Casper started production of the Time 4 Hemp television series, Marc got several Canadian broadcasting networks to show it. Over the years, when Marc was fighting his legal battles with the United States, Casper made us returning guests on his show. When Marc was placed behind bars, Casper gave me the chance to speak to the cannabis movement through his network any time I wanted to. It’s one of the many reasons why we love him so much.

There’s a WIDE VARIETY of music on this network
and it’s all about cannabis.
I found Casper Leitch on MySpace way back in 2002. He was one of the first global program hosts to play my music on their show. One of the things I love most about the network is the wide range of musical styles that is played. You just never know what you’re gonna hear next. It might be a 1930’s Viper-Rag or a Rap song by an artists from this year. It might be a Reggae tune or a Country Western song or Jazz or Rock-n-Roll. One thing is for sure – every song is about how wonderful cannabis-hemp is and is great to listen to when smokin’ out with friends.

The history of The Hemp Movement

When I first began my involvement with NORML, one of the first things Keith Stroup insisted I do was to watch the Time 4 Hemp television series. Back then, it was a ground-breaking series that had the Founders Of The Hemp Movement as guests and each segment was packed with eye-opening information. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed being a guests on the network. It’s an honor to have my voice included with so many dedicated activists.

I met Casper Leitch in 1990 shortly after Jack Herer hired him to run the Help End Marijuana Prohibition (H.E.M.P.) office. Over the years, he and I have had a lot of fun educating people about the TRUTH pertaining to medical marijuana. I’ve been a JOINT-Host on many of his radio segments. It’s really amazing how much you can learn from listening to just a few of his shows.

Everyone needs to to be able to take medical marijuana.
Every one also needs to be able to take Time 4 Hemp.
I met Casper Leitch in the Spring of 1990 the day Jack Herer hired him to run his office. When Casper started the television series, I was the first guest he invited on. When he began the Time 4 Hemp Podcast in 2006, I was his first guest. When Time 4 Hemp was picked up by American Freedom Radio in 2009, I was the first radio guest. One of the reason’s Casper is called ‘The Father Of Marijuana Media’ is because he pioneered it.

One of the reasons I love Time 4 Hemp so much is because of the way it educates people about the truth pertaining to the cannabis plant. It’s the same reason I opened Oaksterdam University in 2007 – to help people find a way to learn all they can about this most amazing gift from Nature. If you want to get a Masters Degree in Cannabis, there are two ways to achieve that. One is by enrolling into Oaksterdam University; the other is to listen to all the programs found in the archives at Time 4 Hemp. Casper Leitch is a very effective Professor.

I had a lot of fun being a reoccurring guest on the network – especially when Casper Leitch had me on with Jack Herer. Casper is bright and witty and knows how to keep a show moving forward. I still make it a point to take Time 4 Hemp every chance I get.

Listen to Time 4 Hemp for a NORML view of cannabis.
I met Casper Leitch at the 2001 NORML conference and he has had me as a guest on his show many times since. Each time is refreshing and fun. I get a chance to share a lot of news and information with the global marijuana movement when I visit. I was happy when High Times Magazine gave him the ‘Freedom Fighter Of The Month’ award back in February of 2013. His work as a pioneering activist is inspiring. He’s been a true champion of the NORML organization as well. I believe he’s had most of our chapter presidents on as guests.

and the truth will set you free.
With the Time 4 Hemp Broadcasting Network being on the internet, the truth can now be found 24-hours a day, 7 days a week – and I love it! When I first saw Time 4 Hemp on television back in 1991, I was impressed with what a terrific series it was. I told everyone I could about it. I’m still a dedicated fan. I now listen to the network every day on iHeartRadio.

Telling the truth about the War On Drugs
can sometimes take a big LEAP of faith!
Some of the best memories I have happened when I was a Joint-Host on Time 4 Hemp every Wednesday for ‘LEAP Day’. Casper Leitch and I interviewed nearly every member of the Law Enforcement Against Prohibition organization about 5 times before I retired from my work as an activists. I do miss those days and am grateful that I can enjoy some of those moments again when I listen to some of the network archives. Casper’s work in the legalization movement is unparalleled – it truly does stand apart from all others who have followed in his path.

The ONLY WAY to fight ignorance is with TRUTH.
This network is a fantastic source of truth about cannabis.
I met Casper Leitch in 1991 when he and Jack Herer showed up for the first Hempfest that I put together. Over the years, both he and Jack have been a guest speaker at many of my events and I’ve had a lot of fun being a returning guest on his show. Casper is one of the hardest working cannabis activists that I know. He has given us a platform to be heard on and he is dedicated to raising the voice of the medical cannabis movement.

Exposing how the War On Drugs
destroys the lives of everyone touched by it.
I first met Casper Leitch in Washington DC at the 1991 National NORML Conference when he and I were featured speakers at the event. I sat down as a guest on his show after the conference and have been a reoccurring visitor ever since. The series AND the network is one of the very few media outlets where uncensored truth about cannabis and the destructive laws created by the War On Drugs are rationally presented. There is MUCH to be learned from listening to the many historic interviews found on this website.

This network is a great way to reach people
and teach them about how wonderful hemp is.
Casper Leitch tells the truth about all things hemp. I met him in 2006. We all should thank him for his time and devotion to the cannabis movement. Because of his hard work, people like me can operate a cannabis business LEGALLY in some parts of the United States. Casper is a real HEMP HERO.

Putting a spotlight on the
failures of the War On Drugs.
Every time I’ve been a guest on the Time 4 Hemp network, I have walked away knowing my message would be heard – uncensored – ALL AROUND THE WORLD. I’ve known Casper Leitch since the beginning of the century and enjoy his entertaining approach to such a serious topic. I’ve sent copies of several of his programs to many members of the United States Senate and the US Congress over the past several years. The guests he has had on his network are doctors, patients, lawyers, scientist – in fact – he has had experts from every Walk Of Life who has been touched by the War On Drugs on as a guest. Time 4 Hemp is not only the FIRST of its kind – in my book – there is nothing else that can match it when it comes to truthful content about the need to end prohibition.

The Time 4 Hemp Broadcasting Network provides an intelligent forum for discussing marijuana legalization. The programming found here provides information meant to educate those who would rally for prohibition as well as inform those who are all for legalization. The founder of the network, Casper Leitch, is the part of the glue that has held the movement together by uniting the many different voices which are scattered around the globe. He provides information and resources that are accurate and up to date.

I met Casper Leitch at the Seattle Hempfest in 2008 and we’ve been good friends ever since. I enjoy it when he has me as a guest on the network. I was the first Chief Of Police in any city to denounce marijuana prohibition. Being on Casper’s show gives me the chance to open people’s eyes to one of the biggest reasons why police oppose drug law reform is because they stand to lose revenue, both in the form of federal grants and in seized and forfeited assets. Many departments, sad to say, have become “addicted” to those revenue streams. This network is one of the very few media sources that offers uncensored information about cannabis. I encourage everyone to tune in and support it.
