Cannabis Music – Show 67

This episode of Cannabis Music we talk about one of my all time favorite bands, Blind Melon. Well, sort of. They did a cover of a Hoyt Axton song, called “The Pusher”. And actually there have been several covers of this song, including one by Steppenwolf. Anyway, it’s a really cool song that recognizes the differences between weed and other ‘drugs’. It was written in the sixties and made quite a stir at the time, for reasons that will become clear once you hear the lyrics. I was originally going to play the Blind Melon version but I think the original is definitely harder to come by. And since that’s kind of the point of this segment (to expose you to music you may not have otherwise heard)….well…Plus Hoyt Axton is amazing and everyone should know and love him. Ok, I’m done. Without further blabber on my part, enjoy The Pusher by Hoyt Axton!

Cannabis Music – Show 64

This episode’s Featured Cannabis Music is actually much more than just one song. We talk about a really cool website called, MarijuanaMusic.net. It’s basically a website where you can use or create playlists specifically designed to aid in the growth and development of your cannabis plants. HOW COOL IS THAT?

Here’s what their website says:

Welcome, where music grows plants

We use the music as a method for growing plants

ROOTS

Playing music for several hours during the day greatly affects plant growth.

FACTS

Although illegal in many countries, some people use marijuana on a daily basis as medical or ludic motives, but there are a lot of misinformation out there.

Cannabis Music – Show 59

A classic song about marijuana and the injustice of its illegality. We just couldn’t help ourselves. Steppenwolf – Don’t Step On The Grass, Sam is a call for change and sadly a lot of it still rings true today.
Here are the lyrics:

“Don’t Step On The Grass, Sam”

Starin’ at the boob tube, turnin’ on the big knob
Tryin’ to find some life in the waste land
Fin’ly found a program, gonna deal with Mary Jane
Ready for a trip into hate land
Obnoxious Joe comes on the screen
Along with his guest self-righteous Sam
And one more guy who doesn’t count
His hair and clothes are too far outWhile pushin’ back his glasses Sam is sayin’ casually
“I was elected by the masses”
And with that in mind he starts to unwind
A vicious attack on the finest of grassesWell it’s evil, wicked, mean and nasty
(Don’t step on the grass, Sam)
And it will ruin our fair country
(Don’t be such an ass, Sam)
Well, it will hook your Sue and Johnny
(You’re so full of bull, Sam)
All will pay that disagree with me
(Please give up you already lost the fight, alright)Misinformation Sam and Joe
Are feeding to the nation
But the one who didn’t count counted them out
By exposing all their false quotations
Faced by a very awkward situation
This is all he’d say to save the dayWell it’s evil, wicked, mean and nasty
(Don’t step on the grass, Sam)
And it will ruin our fair country
(Don’t be such an ass, Sam)
Well, it will hook your Sue and Johnny
(You’re so full of bull, Sam)
All will pay that disagree with me
(Please give up you already lost the fight alright)

You waste my coin Sam, all you can
To jail my fellow man
For smoking all the noble weed
You need much more than him
You’ve been telling lies so long
Some believe they’re true
So they close their eyes to things
You have no right to do
Just as soon as you are gone
Hope will start to climb
Please don’t stay around too long
You’re wasting precious time

Repeat Chorus

Cannabis Music – Show 58

In honor of Fats Waller’s jokes on Anslinger, we decided to play a song by Fats Waller for this episode’s Cannabis Music. We’re going to play a little song that he recorded as a V-disc during the war where he talks blatently about cannabis. However, at the time, only servicemen and the vipers really knew what the hell he was talking about. Enjoy!

Cannabis Music – Show 56

We spent most of our last episode (Show 55) talking about how important it is to protect our brand image as pot smoker’s or cannabis consumers. So, this episode we thought we’d share a little something with you that shows we aren’t the only ones talking about this. I think pretty much every ‘pothead’ out there has heard the original “Because I got High” by Afroman, but did you know he just released a more positive version? Well, her did and we decided to use it as this episode’s featured music. Please check it out below!

And just in case you haven’t heard the original version, here is that one too:

Cannabis Music – Show 55

“The Weed Smoker’s Dream” written by Kansas Joe McCoy, performed by the Copper Bottom Band

Since we’ve brought back our featured cannabis music, I’m going to leave Little Known Cannabis Facts off this time with a great song from that era (the 30’s and 40’a). And while it wasn’t one of Mezz Mezrow’s or even one he financed, it’s a classic. So many of the songs of this era are lost to newer generations and I think that’s just sad. And apparently so do the members of this group. Lots of folks have seen the TV show, House M.D. But not many know Hugh Laurie is really a musician at heart. He and the rest of the Copper Bottom Band tour the world and they play songs from this era to try to keep them alive. They’ve mastered a really incredible version of the classic song “The Weed Smoker’s Dream” originally written by the famous Kansas Joe McCoy. We’re gonna leave you with this song and have some Mezz in honor of well, Mezz and all the others who just LIVE what they believe.  Enjoy!
