420-friendly musicians needed for the movement

Of course, you and your band burn some down at practice. (It makes everything sound better.) But did you know that if you get caught with the sticky icky in Kansas, the penalties for a first-time possession charge can include one year in jail and a $2,500 fine?

Fuck that shit, right? But own that shit, too.

Yesterday on Craigslist we found this ad for 420-friendly musicians:

The local cannabis legalization community is searching for 420 friendly bands who would be willing to donate a set or two during our various fundraisers and events. We appreciate all types of music and all unique sounds. You would be working with both JoCoNORML and KU NORML at various venues across the metro area.

At the moment, we cannot pay, but hope to be able to in the future. If you're interested please contact Chuck at JoCoNORML.

We assume that upcoming performances will include the first annual spring BBQ at Shawnee Mission Park on Saturday, April 9, and the Million Man Marijuana March on Saturday, May 7, at the J.C. Nichols Fountain, both found on the events page on the JoCo NORML website.

Confession: Last spring, I stopped st the Million Man Marijuana March for a bit. There were hula hoopers, dogs, parents with kids and sack lunches, KKFI radio personalities and, of course (a few, but not many) phat Js. The sound for the bands wasn't all that great, but no one seemed to mind -- the weather was beautiful and the police had other things to do.

So enough with the apathy and trash talk about the stoner shows. Weed isn't going to legalize itself.
