Jack HererDuring the 7th High Times Cannabis Cup Jack Herer received the Freedom Fighter Of The Year Award 1994. Nine years later Jack Herer was inducted in the Counterculture Hall Of Fame in 2003, during the 16th High Times Cannabis Cup. In 2005 he received the Cannabis Culture Award 2005.

The High Times Freedom Fighters was a marijuana legalization group started in 1987. They injected life into the legalization movement, forged a new generation of activists, and created a number of events around the country.  After the group disbanded, High Times continued to name a Freedom Fighter of the Month in every issue of the magazine, as well as an annual Freedom Fighter of the Year, who is always crowned at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam.

The Counterculture Hall of Fame was created in 1997 by High Times Editor Steven Hager. The purpose of the Hall of Fame was to help focus ceremonies at the annual Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam, and to celebrate the history of the counterculture by recognizing its saints. The inductions are done in Amsterdam every year on Thanksgiving as part of the Cannabis Cup awards show. Often a documentary film is shown to introduce the inductee(s) to the audience. A silver Cannabis Cup is awarded as part of the induction ceremony.

The Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum Amsterdam confers the Cannabis Culture Awards to those who have distinguished themselves in the struggle for acceptance of Cannabis in all of its forms, working to ensure that this extraordinary plant has a future where it is fully utilized and a history that is fully known.

Jack Herer (June 18, 1939 – April 15, 2010), sometimes called the "Emperor of Hemp", was an American cannabis activist and the author of The Emperor Wears No Clothes, a book which has been used in efforts to decriminalize cannabis. Herer also founded and served as the director of the organization Help End Marijuana Prohibition (HEMP).
