Amid all kinds of despair, some folks in California, Nevada, and Massachusetts are very happy about their states adopting legislation legalizing recreational marijuana use. Fat Tony, though he's a Houston native, appears to share their enthusiasm, having dropped off a new song, "Legal Weed" this afternoon.

It's also historically informed, with Tony recounting a highlight reel of the heavily racialized history of policing and legislation around the drug in our country to date. Listen below.
