The Green Outlaws’ message is simple: stop criminalizing cannabis consumers.
“Poll after poll after poll has come out in favor of legalization why does Stephen Harper continue to move in the opposite direction?” asks band leader Red “Sticky Fingers” Clay. “Our music is a lighthearted attempt to point out this mis-direction and portray cannabis consumers in a fair and accurate light.”
The band’s new single “I Wish Stephen Harper Would Smoke A Joint” blends toe-tapping old time music and political humour with a decidedly East Coast twist. It’s fast becoming an underground hit.
The seven member group with an average age of 56 was formed in direct response to Harpers current approach to cannabis legislation. The lineup includes some of the East Coast’s best musicians and was recorded by East Coast legend Roland Peppers.
“Everybody volunteered their time,” say Clay. “We feel very strongly about what we are doing. We’re not kids. We’ve seen this nonsense for 40 years now, and enough is enough. We’re having fun and Steve gives us lots of material to write about. We’re elated that he is a musician. Maybe we can open his ears. This is just the beginning”.
