    Let's end the failed War On Drugs!!

    'War on Drugs' is the first single from Ghosty Boy's upcoming debut record "Freaky Be Funky'.

    Ghosty Boy is the bass player for Current Swell and the singer of Funk Vigilante, as well as a solo artist and producer.

    The video features guest cameos by Jesse Roper, Dirty Deriek (Spaceboots) and Laban Pitman Johnson (The Wolfpack Project).

    ---War On Drugs---

    This one goes out to people across the world who have been unjustly persecuted, victimized or incarcerated by the failed War on Drugs.

    The War on Drugs is by all accounts a colossal failure. For decades drug policy has targeted minorities and the lower class.

    At it's worst it incarcerates innocent non-violent people, often minorities, and supports America's absurdly corrupt private for-profit prison system that can only be described as modern day slavery.

    Our intention is not to glorify or vilify drug use, only to say that drug users are not criminals. They are our friends, families and colleagues.

    Stop the racism, stop the oppression!

    End the worldwide War on Drugs!

    ---War on Drugs LYRICS---

    Said I've been thinking about the way
    That the planet spins
    And I've been thinking
    About this fucked up world we live in

    And I've been thinking about them
    Locking up all these poor black thugs
    And now I'm thinking its time to talk
    About the war on drugs

    Because the problem is
    As it seems to be
    Speaking strictly statistically
    3 out of 4 drug offenders
    Sent to prison are black
    Now could you tell me, brother,
    What the fuck is up with that?

    And about 1 out of 5
    Prisoners in the US are drug offenders
    And at least half of those arrests
    Are pot-smokers

    Man I can't believe
    They still lock people up
    For smoking weed

    Now tell me why the fuck
    You'd want to throw
    A harmless marijuana smoker
    Into prison

    Man, it's embarrassing
    But I guess that's justice
    In the land of the free

    Because the war on drugs
    Ain't nothing but a racket man
    It keeps the poor kids poor
    And it keeps the black kids down
    It keeps the power corrupt
    It keeps the pigs good and fat
    And while the poor kids go to prison
    The upper class is kicking back

    We're taking it back now
    To 1936
    Does anybody remember refer madness?

    Now get this:
    Apparently weed is the reason
    That white women get raped
    By Satanic jazz musicians

    But if think it's because
    People were just stupid

    back then
    Well the fact is
    The propaganda started a trend
    That continues now
    To this very day
    Fear and racism

    That's the way that they
    Manipulate the public
    Toward mass paranoia

    Now let's fast forward to that
    Special message Nixon signed
    Back in 1969

    And so the war on drugs was born
    And billions of tax dollars blown
    The prison population in the states explodes

    Set those people free
    They ain't criminals

    Because the war on drugs
    Ain't nothing but a racket man
    It keeps the poor kids poor
    And it keeps the black kids down
    It keeps the power corrupt
    It keeps the pigs good and fat
    And while the poor kids go to prison
    The upper class is kicking back
    Just set them free

    ....awww shit...pass that....pass it right over....

    Well it's all over now
    Justice has prevailed
    It looks like the War on Drugs has failed
    Let's be real for a minute, man
    What's the score?
    Looks like there's more drugs now
    Then there ever was before

    So let's light that Victory joint up now
    Take a hit brother
    And pass it around

    I said I dedicate the drugs I'm about to do
    To the cops and the preachers
    And the judges too

    To the politicians and the CIA
    To the baby boomers with one foot in the grave
    Paranoid parents and the teachers too
    Heads up, light it up
    This blunts for you
