Okay, so I was going to write this blog on Saturday 4/20 but I guess I kinda spaced.
No kidding. I was going to trace how a note passed around a high school in California in the early 70's morphed into a not-so-secret codeword for Cannibis Consumption in our culture...but you can read about that here.
I was going to tell the story of how former (and soon to be disgraced by Watergate) Vice President Spiro Agnew once claimed the song "One Toke Over The Line" by Brewer and Shipley was subversive to American Youth and pressured the FCC to ban the song from radio airplay just as it was reaching it's peak of popularity. But you can read about that here...
I was going to comment on how things have changed over the years. Medical Marijuana is now legal in a number of states. But (you guessed it)...you can read about that here.
But I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T pass up sharing this video. But be forewarned: If you happen to be reading this in one of those aforementioned states where medical marijuana is legal (or if you happen to be otherwise partaking) the following video can result in uncontrollable fits of laughter. Heck, it might under normal circumstances.
It seems that during the national controversy over the song One Toke Over The Line, the song got performed on the conservative, family oriented Lawrence Welk show. I kid you not! I don't think Lawrence had a clue...but I bet some of the staff was giggling over this one.
Okay, my Champagne Music Makers...here we go. Ah one and a two and ah.....
There ya go. Hope it didn't harsh your mellow. :-)
