lyrics

What are we gonna do about these marijuana laws?
They're coming after you
Throw your hands against the wall

He don't wanna hurt nobody
He just wants to smoke some weed
She just wanna get her mind right
Everyday of the week
But there's an issue with this lifestyle
Some people wanna see them sweating in a cell
Punished for reefer madness, the cure for sadness
And we just wanna treat our mental health

I saw the flashing and I knew it was over
The red and blue in my rearview
My eyes are red, I wanna talk to my lawyer
Look what my world has come to

What are we gonna do about these marijuana laws?
They're coming after you
Throw your hands against the wall

The DEA is knocking down the doors
Throwing hard working honest men and women to the floors
They're scaring all their kids while they're sleeping in their beds
These people wanna live, they wanna take it to the head
One hundred million people say it ain't that bad
And they'll continue smoking just to make you mad
Slowly making progress across the nation
But they're still making arrests, so much work to be done
