We, Pitura Freska, are
also convinced that the only dose of cannabis that would actually prove
lethal would be a two-kilo pack falling on your head from the twenty-fifth
floor of a high-rise building. Because we think that, in a civilized
society, prohibiting its use and persecuting its users is nothing but
an anachronism and an insult to personal freedom.
As far back as 1982,
our oldest songs (see "Marghera" or "Saria Beo")
denounced this state of affairs and we put ourselves forward as campaigners
for the cause in this, the latest of many a fight for freedom.
The song "Olanda",
from the album Yeah, was a prime example and sparked off a battle between
us and the Inland Revenue as we were accused of reproducing the album
cover on our posters.
We are relying on your
intelligence to introduce legality where it is currently lacking, recalling
"De Marijuana no xe mai morto nisuni".
("Nobody's ever died of marijuana")
