I have some original songs about weed. My efforts range from the inspirational spiritual The Joint Beats the Jigger to the high-and-whimsical Stoned Song. Intolerant attitudes about weed (among other things) are ridiculed in The Hypocrite, one of several songs with libertarian themes. Another is Hill Country Outlaw, which compares old-time moonshining with pot growing as it extols the Ozark mountain hillbilly anarchist lifestyle. The of course, there's the coffee-house favorite - my most requested song - Every Dead Narc is One Small Step for Freedom.
