Nellie McKay – 'Weed (All I Want for Christmas)'

British singer Nellie McKay has a new cause: cannabis. She dresses up in a pot leaf outfit, goes greenface and even raps in her holiday season video, "Weed (That's All I Want for Christmas)."


Weed (that's all I want for Christmas)
Weed (a cradle of good cheer)
Weed (a perfect part of this bliss)
Every Christmas day of the year


40% of present penitentiaries
Are on a pot-related charge
Or charges solely based on weed
These are prison afflictions of the non-addicted
Fuck the rigged vote flippin & the prohibition
Schedule I HAS GOT TO GO!

McKay's latest album, My Weekly Reader, was released in March.
