American Dope Growers Union

Dope Grower…..Laraine Newman

Dope Grower: Every time you buy pot from Mexico, or Colombia… you’re putting an American out of work. We here at the American Dope Growers Union support ourselves by growing marijuana in American soil. We’ve had a pretty hard time on our own. But with the union, we can lead decent lives and stay off welfare. That’s MY union, and that’s what our union label stands for.

[ she holds up her union label, which is affixed to the outside of a plastic bag of marijuana, then begins to sing: ]

Dope Grower: “Soooo look for, the Union label…”

[ a group of other dope growers slowly surround her and join in the chorus ]

“when you are buying your joint, lid, or pound
Remember somewhere, our Union’s growing
you’ll be smoking, at the best price around
You know we work hard, but who’s complaining
So always look for, the Union label, it says we deal for the U.S. of A.”

[ logo appears on screen ]

Announcer: This message brought to you by the Americn Dope Growers Union.

[ dissolve to audience wide shot, zoom in on man with SUPER: “Has Name Tapes On All Clothing” ] [ fade ]
