No Xmas until Black Friday. No Xmas Reggae til Dec. 1. So enjoy some Holiday Reggae set (including a Hanukkah jam).

Just got back from Las Vegas on a cratedig. So we hear the fruits of that labor. More vinyl than CDs. The CD is going, going, gone. Vinyl, even rare vinyl for I ‘n’ I as a collector, was really a good trip.
And in the land of 10 down (with 40 to go), I wasn’t a criminal. Here was my stop in Vegas. Since I’m an Ancient Astronaut Theorist, (who believes in the 12th planet Nibiru), of course my go to Vegas dispensary was Planet 13.

Had a great conversation with my window installer this summer. He was a young Mormon man with a family. We got to talking based on my Reggae/cannabis menagerie of posters up in the Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives.
He has excruciating pain in his back. None of the official pain meds were tolerable: gave him terrible constipation and nightmares. His wife was offered pharmaceutical anti-nausea medication while pregnant. Later the drug was found to cause birth defects.
Both of them relied on cannabis for pain and nausea relief. Not CBD. Cannabis. Smoked not eaten. My Dad uses it for neuropathy and carpal tunnel in Arizona. It’s a medicine. Congrats to Utahans for exercising their free agency.
So what will 2020 bring?
I’m predicting these states go for it:
Montana (my homeland!)
Arizona (second try)
Hawaii? (they should be no brainer)
10 down, 40 to go! Maybe Pres. 45 will legalize it nationally if he wants to get re-elected?
Wow. That was quite the election without objection. Say what you want about Pres. 45, he motivates people to the polls. Although 5 billion dollars seems like quite a squandering of resources for such lack of choice.
But listening to Reggae for 3 plus decades, I learned to give the Hairy Eyeball to the isms and schisms.
So, this Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives delves into the real politik. And the same thing for breakfast.
I also think The Cream has it on the money too….
<Same thing for breakfast & The Cream’s Politician; 85 sec.>
The Cream – Politician
I’m a political man And I practice what I preach I’m a political man And I practice what I preach So don’t deny me, baby Not while you’re in my reach
I support the left Though I’m leaning, leaning to the right I support the left Though I’m leaning to the right But I’m just not there When it’s coming to a fight
Best outcome for I ‘n’ I
Michigan legalized the collie weed
Missouri medical MJ
Utah Proposition 2 – Medical Marijuana puff puff passed
