1939: "Hemperor" Jack Herer Born

Known to many as the Emperor of Hemp (or "Hemperor," if you want to go there), Herer was one of America's most vocal and active legalization advocates, penning books like Grass and The Emperor Wears No Clothes. He even ran for president a couple of times under the Grassroots Party! Herer didn't spend much of his personal or professional life in New York, but he was, in fact, born in Brooklyn, so we can still claim him as a native son.
