Melissa Etheridge - The pot revolution is being won by middle-aged women
Melissa Etheridge is equal parts musician and activist, and in recent years the singer-songwriter’s activism has expanded to include marijuana legalization.
“I have come out of the closet as a gay person,” Etheridge said at the concert earlier this week, which also included Jackson Browne and David Crosby, according to the above video. “I’m also coming out of the closet as a cannabis user — surprise!
“It’s an important thing, and you can see it all around. Colorado, Washington, Alaska, Oregon and you know what’s next — California! Let’s show them that not only is plant medicine excellent medicine and good for us but the freedom to explore our consciousness is an important freedom.”
Later on in her on-stage banter, Etheridge said (at the 2:22 mark in the above video): “What I know about the cannabis revolution is that it is being won by middle-aged women — I’m just sayin’.” #justsaying
