SNL Transcripts: Eric Idle: 04/23/77: American Dope Growers Union

Laraine Newman aka “Dope Grower”:

“Every time you buy pot from Mexico, or Colombia… you’re putting an American out of work. We of 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 live decent lives and stay off welfare. That’s MY union, and that’s what our union label stands for.

Group Song:

“Soooo look for the Union label, when you are buying that joint, lid, or pound.

Remember somewhere, our Union’s growing…dope you’ll be smoking…at the best price around.

You know we work hard, but who’s complaining? When we at ADG stay high and earn our way.

So always look for, the Union label, it says we deal for the U.S. of A.”
