Jack is directly the reason why the Institute exists.  The research behind his book was verified personally by the founder of the Institute in archives held by the University of Minnesota, The Minnesota Historical Society, The USDA, The National Archives and other sources as accurate as far as the information was known at that time.

From Jack’s book we explored all the various uses of Cannabis for industrial applications and began our work to tirelessly expand that knowledge far and wide.
