Even as other states around the country inch closer to legal recreational marijuana for citizens over the age of 21, Texas persists in severely punishing cannabis possession. And in one of the state's most striking quirks of drug law, anything cooked with weed butter or hash oil is treated as a controlled substance on par with heroin, meaning a pound of pot brownies could put you behind bars for life. The friendly attorneys of Hutson & Harris don't want to see your buzz harshed that way, so they've produced a music video that ought to convince any half-baked pastry chef to put down the mixing bowl and rethink their choices.
It's hardly the first time these country lawyers have offered advice in song. Over the years, they've crooned about your Miranda rights, not talking to the police without representation, and why you shouldn't try to eat your pot when you get caught with it. Man, it's like some people have never seen Super Troopers.
Are these guys as sultry and smooth in court as they are on YouTube? Guess you could always commit a crime in Texas and find out for yourself.
