Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die

If I believed in representative democracy I think I might be tempted by this, even though I don’t smoke dope.


There’s something refreshing about seeing someone injecting some humor into all the scowling.  This modern religion of self-important in-your-face sneering between opposing political illusions and conflicting certainties about ‘What this country needs‘ and who’s most worthy of hatred and purple scorn ought to get boring for those doing it.  For the good of their souls, maybe.  Or, failing that, just as a means of demonstrating a human brain resides inside the human skull.


  • Willie Nelson was busted in Texas for possessing marijuana on Nov. 26, 2010. Following the arrest, Willie founded the Teapot Party, declaring: “Tax it, regulate it and legalize it! Stop the border wars over drugs. Why should the drug lords make all the money? Thousands of lives will be saved.” Since then, Willie clarified the focus of the party. “The purpose of the Teapot Party is to vote in people who believe the way we do,” he stated, “and vote out the ones who don’t.” With that in mind, we’ve embarked on a campaign to find candidates to support in upcoming elections. So far we’ve made four endorsement and there will be many more to come. We encourage Teapot Party supporters to use this site to their advantage. Learn who we’re supporting, read the latest blogs, find out what’s happening in the marijuana-reform community, order free stickers, buy Teapot Party merchandise, keep up with our Facebook and Twitter feeds and upcoming events, such as rallies and meetups. With your support, we can make a difference by ending cannabis prohibition in our lifetimes. Please send donations to the candidates of your choice. Then go out and “vote in people who believe the way we do and vote out the ones who don’t,” just like Willie says.

I suppose old Willie still believes in representative democracy.  I’ll try to forgive him being stupid by believing something I don’t.  I’ll reciprocate by being stupid enough not to start smoking dope again.  Too damned much trouble. 

I’m trying to remember when it was I figured that out.    Sometime a long time ago, but before too much later, I think it was.  I had the High Roller already, but I don’t think I had the gray John B. Stetson yet.

  1. Hi There Jules….we were just talking about smoking dope yesterday…were you listening in?
    It’s funny but I have never smoked a joint and have never been tempted to even try one.
    Guess I like to know my highs are my own.

    • Hi Granny1947. I’ve no objection to you never having smoked dope, no matter what your reasons might have been for not doing it. I’m open minded about such things and don’t consider myself at a higher altitude on the moral high ground for my having done so, and you not having done so. I’m cool with it. Thanks for stopping by. Jules

  2. Re: ‘Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die’: This reminds me of a similar sentiment printed on Whataburger styrofoam cups: “When I am empty, please dispose of me properly.”

    • Fearguth: I suppose we all have our personal reference points and tend to relate to what’s most familiar to us in our habits of thinking. Thanks for coming by. Gracias, Jules

  3. Your first paragraph pretty much sums up my attitude toward the incivility and gross lack of logic in politics. It’s okay if people with axes to grind grind away, just so long as they don’t keep trying to convince me it’s for *my* good when we all know perfectly well it’s just about fulfilling their own desires. Mostly, I’d just love it if everybody’d shut up and play whatever they like to play in their own sandboxes without pulling *my* hair about it. I have little enough hair as it is. 🙂

    • Hi kathryningrid: Mine’s getting a bit thin in places, too. Partly because I test how sharp whatever axe I’m grinding is by seeing if it shaves hair. Gracias, Jules
