When the New Mexico Department of Health’s Cannabis Advisory Board held a hearing in 2011, they may not have expected to hear poetry.

But hear a poem they did, and a good one at that, from cannabis activist Rick Burnley, then 71, who attributed his good health to smoking marijuana for 50 years.

“Greetings from the Land of Enchantment,” Burnley told Toke Signals. “I’m a marijuana activist, and a well known anti-war poet with about 50 videos posted on YouTube.

“I performed ‘Doobie Or Not Doobie’ at the NMDOH hearings for patients and providers,” Burnley said. “It was videotaped and posted on YouTube,” he told us.

“It got a standing ovation, so it’s worth checking out.”

“Stay Mota-Vated,
Rick Burnley”

BOOM!
