Prohibition Songs

Cannabis Educationals and Directionals

 + half the people of the world are illiterate, put information in the music and they may consider it. Please package in an earth friendly rapper and remix with 2 parts comedy for sum (laughter).  

Cannabis Naturals 

   Dr. Hay ThC., professor of music ecology, declared "it's time for mutually beneficial co evolution of media and the audience. Have some good organic food at your event and some potable water.  A ecological solution. Is your music a source of pollution? "
