Toots and the Maytals Tuesday

“54-46 That’s My Number” by Toots and the Maytals

Today is the unofficial annual holiday for enthusiastic (well, as enthusiastic as a drawn-out “yeah, man”) marijuana smokers. I don’t smoke the pot myself (though I do have a friend who, every couple of years, likes to float in a pool while eating popsicles and listening to Dark Side of the Moon at a loud volume). Two weeks ago I even went to the ganja hot spot that is Jamaica and avoided all offers of it—and it was all over the place! Anyway, for the people who do like marijuana, and for those who think it should be legalized, here’s an excellent track by Toots and the Maytals about Toot’s time in prison for marijuana possession.
