This is my 29th winter in Salt Lake City. The air gets worse and worse. When it looks like the above, it ain’t from Green Smoke.
The weather propagandists call it “inversion.” Fiyah burn that! It’s smog.
You do what you can, but at some point in the 100 days of gunk, it’s gonna hit you. I am dealing with it right now. Cold, congestion and cough. I hacked and sneezed and wheezed for 3 hours of Reggae Radio
Head to the pharmacy for some Allegra-D. No Madam pharmacist. I ‘n’ I don’t cook di meth we smoke sensimilla!
So I’m pretty froggy this week on Smile Jamaica.
Here is what i have in store for you! Keep out of hazy daze and hunker down for some heavy roots for the cabin fevah! 56 sec.
