It’s the Happy Holidaze with plenty of caloric intake and consumption of intoxicating chemistry. Not least of which is all the THC and cannabis clouds floating above the heads of Christmas party patrons. That smoke gets into everything including this episode of Ira Harmon’s Popmachine. All you Vipers became Vapers but the high is still the dragon you chase. Light ‘em up if you got some of that doja, tea, jive, or gage, and kick back and listen to the odes to Marijuana.

(Subbing for Abu Ben Badd whose out on personal business.)
