Penticton Western News letters to the editor.

Letter: Going to pot

Coming soon marijuana, a magical weed that feeds and gives the brain a high,

Say goodbye, to yesterday’s fix in the coffee shop, a journey awaits that can put you over the top.

Grow your own weed a thing called pot. Roll a joint, you’ll like it a lot.

Let’s light up the world and create more smoke, then pray that Mother Nature doesn’t choke

Booze and guns were given a shot but failed to get it done, where smoke from pot may block light from a blazing sun.

Stay up high in a world of your own till the drug wears off when I can tell, you may believe you took a train to hell.

Many decisions coming down from the top has me wondering are they high? Did they jump the gun to have some fun?

Just a reminder to forget me not, they are rushing our world closer to going to pot.
