Driving While Stoned Songs: "Willin'" (1970)
Little Feat, performing in 1977
Listening to Lowell George's classic tune on a Saturday morning, I wonder: Where are the Zeitgeist and the correct choice (not necessarily the same thing) on the legalization of marijuana? Cultural elites seem to be saying yes, and yet some well-meaning institution or agency paid good money for the stay-off-dope ad I saw before "Stay of Play" at the Edwards 14 last night. The fact that our tax-addicted state and federal governments need the money from legal drug sales isn't a good enough reason.
