Weed

Red State Walmarts sell no weed.
Not a stem.  Not a seed.
You can buy all the beer and Big Pharma you need.
But Red State Walmarts sell no weed.

Couldn't resist passing a little weed over to Susan at Poets United.

MZ how excited I was to see your verse. Hope you and the family are well and that your weeds are behaving this spring :)

Different legislation in different states. Not everyone requires floral uplifting it seems!!

I was hoping someone would read weed as stem flower and seed. I'm surprised at Walmart. Is it lack of greed?

Buddah Moskowitz said...

Amen! As a recovering addict, I'm not allowed to use marijuana. I've never used it (being Mexican, my old man told me I'd get the death penalty if I was caught with marijuana), but I want to legalize it!

There's no room, what with all the Chinese soldiers hiding behind the shelves, waiting to take over Texas.

You can get it at Walmart in some states? Far out!

It is always a delight to see bloggers take the left road rather than the right.

Mary said...

Enjoyed this! Ha, there are weeds and there are WEEDS!

Rosemary Nissen-Wade said...

LOL. But then again, a serious and valid complaint.

Sumana Roy said...

why is it that the demoniac long hands of red state walmart and big pharma haven't extended to the weeds i wonder when some weeds are not good for nothing...

Susie Clevenger said...

Darn it. I live in a red state also. Texas has been peddling crazy.

Sioux said...

Perhaps if those Walmarts could get an exclusive deal, they'd jump on it.

Ain't it a shame!

Raised a smile here too :)

Myrna R. said...

Ha. I'm sure Walmart will catch up and cash in on the new laws. Hope Susan appreciates the weed you passed to her.

Jae Rose said...

There certainly is an irony in what you can buy and can't - generally speaking natural is a better route if you're that inclined!

De said...

Ha! What a fun take! (not "toke.") ;)

G L Meisner said...

It might be better if they did.

What, not even for medicinal use, with prescription? ;-)
Made me smile, nice one!
