Blunt Farce Drama

(An Editorial Piece with Walter’s Alter Ego)

====~
Thank you Wally,
I just took a hit and that shit made me hella mellow…
Oh hello!
Tonight, we will be discussing the weed industry
And why we need to understand the bigotry
That’s been set in place by the system

Many of you may be familiar with the legalization of marijuana
   In many different states
But I’m gonna make an observation that feels more like farce than drama
     That may open the floodgates for debate

Over the years many dudes, homies and brothers
     Ended up in prison for selling weed
Now that it’s becoming legal we come to uncover
     Those with the money are taking the lead

If you ain’t got the paper you’re in no condition
     Only big business can afford to play the game
It’s been rigged by lobbyists and former politicians
     Raking in most the dough from all the Mary Jane

In short, although the laws are changing
     Many people are still serving their time in jail
While rich motherfuckers at the top
     Are getting richer behaving like a cartel

Wally, back to you
