LYRICS

Blinded by the light
Cannabis can seduce
Being natural don’t make it right
Blinded by the light

Medical Marijuana
Some think it’s the nirvana
No longer a teenage caveat
CBD, THC
Used to eat it in a brownie
Get higher than a kite
Now you’ve got chronic pain all over
Your feeling kinda older
And an inch from your burial ground
But the side effects can be unpleasing
Not just sneezing and wheezing
And much of the evidence is unsound
Much of the evidence is unsound

Don’t by blinded by the light
Cannabis can seduce
Being natural don’t make it right
Blinded by the light

So here is my two cents
For some it makes a difference
If you’ve got neuropathic pain
One in 5 or 10 will get a benefit
Other treatments may be a better fit
Before you bogart, be smart
Check out the side effect chart
You need to know this to decide
It causes sedation, disorientation
And for some hallucinations
Only if nothing else has worked give it a try
If nothing else has worked give it a try

Don’t get down, there is no black and white
We just want to help you see the light
