  • An detailed look at the drug culture of the day back in the days when you could get away with that sort of thing without being tasered and dragged away. Not that we had tasers then. When was the last time you heard a comedian mention cannabinol? Guess everyone who does isn't heard from again. (Stavro Arrgolus)
  • Song Lyrics:
    You know how when you're a teenager, like dig, they talk about grass or any drugs that science has provided us...if that gesture means anything. Uh, they always forget all those beer and wine experiences that the adolescent goes through. Beer leads to heroin; there's no question about it. In fact, mother's milk...leads to everything- acid, DMT.. Mother's milk leads to cannabinol.

    Always been lookin' for that no poke s**t. People always talk about one poke s**t, two poke s**t, "look at my eyes, me an' my old lady..put it out three time.." No poke s**t. It's good, you just cop and you leave it at home and stay high. Knowing it's in the closet.

    'Cause there all all kinds of variations, all that mystique like wines have crept into the pot. They may were been always there when I was like fifteen or sixteen and learnin' about grass, it was always 'Panamanian' Green; they use the whole word. Now they got Panama Red, Acapulco Gold naturally. And you run into some nice offshoots. You got Chicago Green, which is really a Mexican Green, but it's grown near that gold...and then there's that, uh, a guy laid somethin' on us once, he said it was Toledo Window Box.

    We had gotten into grass about, like I say, '53, '52 and most guys drank before they bothered with anything like that and there were only two things around; there was only grass and smack. None of those...slick exotic things you guys have today. Everybody drank first. Saturday night, whaddaya do? Buy something; puke on your shoes. That's why we heard about grass. The word was out. Marijuana! Marijjjjjjjjjjjjjuana! Bush, hemp, boo, smoke, weed, gauge, grass, tea...Mary Jane. That's in all the books. "Mary Jane...marijuana!" Nobody ever said it. "Hey, got any Mary Jane?" "(Stoner tokes and says:) What's it do, man, getcha high?"

    And we found out. Grass... doesn't make you stagger, your breath don't smell...and you don't puke on your shoes. Which is important. 'Cause when you go out drinkin', you can get busted for two kinds of crap. Liquor..oh, forget it. And puke..oh forget it, you already got drunk. Grass sent you home and you could even undergo your mother's closed scrutiny, because by this time you had come home often enough in someone else's clothing that she was openly asking to smell your breath. "Lemme smell the breath!" HHHUUUHHHHHHHH!

    One of the problems that marijuana is having in being decriminalized- yeah, no one can remember where they left the petitions. "Hey...I think I had three...yeah, three....what are we talkin' bout? Oh, the petitions, right." They started the classic way. "How did you get started on drugs, sir?" "...I forget, man."

    Man has been looking to get high since the dawn of time. First guy probably thought "This can't be it!" So he laid down next to a bunch of flowers for a week and that didn't do it. Stood in a corner. They didn't even have corners. He stood in a corner. No, things didn't work out 'til some guys find the right bush; they watched the goats and sheep frolicking. "Them goats eat that s**t stay up all night and PLAY! Now you tell me what we're eatin' isn't wrong!"

    Not to be confused with the singing commercial George did for this album that appeared on 1974 & 1975 Dr. Demento shows.

    He's right, you know. I never heard it called Mary Jane either.

    You know a recreational drug is out of favor when its spelling is in question. The Firefox spell checker couldn't spell 'cannabinol'. I had to google it. My guess turned out to be correct.

    Although there would be a bit of profanity to censor, I expect the reason Dr. D hasn't played this since the release of the album in 1974 is that it's way too drug positive. Not to mention all the detail in the drug references.
