Wouldn't it be great if you
could grow your own medicine
without the side effects of pills
that are worse than the illness?
Wouldn't it be nice that the remedies for anxiety
and depression were just a handful away
and you could pick the cures
you needed for the day?
Wouldn't it be, for returning vets
both physical and mental
to see life growing before you?
And relief of nausea
for chemo patients
and glaucoma in diabetics
or the shakes in Parkinson's?
Well you can, if it wasn't a crime
In two months you
could grow your own relief
from these and other ailments
Write your government officials
and tell them to make it so
by decriminalizing marijuana
and letting those in need grow their own
The sooner, the better!
