Marijuana: The Beatles sing about 64

Posted By on Tue, Aug 21, 2012 at 4:24 PM


The backers behind Amendment 64, the Campaign to Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol, just released their theme song — did you know campaigns had those? — and you haven't heard something this catchy since 1967 when "When I'm Sixty-Four" from The Beatles' Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band hit airwaves.

Here's the lyrics: "Take marijuana off of the streets. / Put it in a store. / We can make it harder for the teens to buy: Sell it like a bottle of wine. / Jobs for our people, money for schools — who could ask for more? / Strict regulation, fund education, yes on 64."

"We want voters humming this tune on the way to the polls," writes the campaign's advocacy director, Betty Aldworth. "After you listen to the song (maybe even a couple of times!), please share it with all the Colorado voters you know — especially those baby boomers who might recognize the tune — and encourage them to pass it along."

Ya dig?
