Panting Under Pressure: Pot pop song

As you have probably heard, recreational cannabis is now legal. (If not, that has to be a pretty good rock you’re under.)

“I know that everyone must be terminally ill [but] It’s kind of all anyone’s talking about, “Sean Panting said on CBC Radio’s St. John’s Morning Show, adding that people either love it or hate it – or are just fed up with hearing about it.

“I feel like this song has to be about weeds because it’s the biggest thing.”

But this week’s hour-long songwriting challenge has something for everyone.

“I chose this out of consideration for all of the people who wrote on topics that would include Come From Away, Astaldi, and turkeys,” Panting said.
