Peter McWilliams


There is a truth that must be heard! The Hempstalk Family celebrates the life of activist Peter McWilliams (1949 – 2000). McWilliams was many things: author, publisher, photographer, poet and activist, among others. But one of the most important things Peter was, was an inspiration. His courage and charisma were and continue to be a source of strength to many who are struggling with illness and with the injustice of our marijuana laws.

He had a remarkable career starting in the 1970s, writing more than 40 books, including works on depression, losing a loved one, computers, and poetry (yes, he was a real Renaissance Man). Several of McWilliams’ books made The New York Times Top 10 nonfiction bestseller list.
