I picked up an Inlander last week and read through the Gift Guide section, last minute gift ideas for various subcultures/friends. And guess what subculture got a two-page spread? “Gifts for Liberated Potheads.” Ever since weed has been legalized in Washington state, people seem happier, dare I say jollier. So, in the spirit of the holidays, spreading good cheer, and celebrating current events, here is your holiday mixtape for the stoner in your life. Enjoy safely, friends. Happy Holidays. May it be festive, green, and full of joy.
Vaporizer for Christmas
I have no idea how to classify this video. I don’t think the video has any idea how to classify this video. And I’m not going to try and explain it. Bonus: Santa totally buckles from peer pressure.
Carol of the Buds
Carol of the Bells is one of the creepier Christmas songs. And this rendition keeps with that tradition. I don’t know what is creepier, the face paint or the guys dancing in the bong costumes on a dimly lit stage.
Willie Nelson Christmas Song
Because you can’t have a toking Christmas without Willie Nelson. Or toking wise men.
Oh Chronic Tree
“Oh Chronic Tree, Oh Chronic Tree, your leaves so green and sticky to me.”
Wish You A Reggae Christmas
Obligatory reggae song. “We wish you an irie Christmas and a dancehall new year.”
T’was the Night Before Christmas
“Merry Christmas to all you motherfuckers, and to all a good high.”
Christmas in Heaven
From Monty Python’s Meaning of Life. Not so much weed related. Although, I’d argue that Christmas in heaven would include a haze of smoke and a kick-ass buffet. Maybe they were too focused on the plastic boobs in this skit and just forgot.
Fuck You If You Don’t Like Christmas
Also, fuck you if you don’t like reindeer dogs, eggnog, or eco-friendly light bulbs.
Santa Claus and His Old Lady
I think I saw Santa Clause at First Ave back in ’97. He was a decent singer, if I remember correctly.
