Slightly Stoopid began in 1996, influenced by SoCal skatepunk, thrash and copious amounts of weed. They now mix a California-centric sound of loopy sampledelic pop, hip-hop, sunny marijuana affirmations, dub and reggae influences.
As the debate over ending marijuana prohibition heats up across the country, the Marijuana Policy Project is partnering with renowned San Diego-based band Slightly Stoopid for their upcoming United States tour, “Cauzin Vapors … Legalize It,” on which they will be accompanied by hip-hop superstars Cypress Hill, The Expendables, Collie Buddz, and reggae legends Steel Pulse on select dates.
Starting in mid-July, the tour will wind across the country, from California to New York, with stops at this year’s acclaimed Lollapalooza festival in Chicago and, appropriately enough, the Mile High Music Festival in Colorado.
MPP will be tabling at performances and have representatives at each show to answer questions and provide information about the ongoing campaigns to end marijuana prohibition in the U.S.
“We are delighted to be included in this opportunity to expand awareness about the need to change our country’s marijuana policies,” said Mary Patton, director of VIP relations at the Marijuana Policy Project.
“Slightly Stoopid, Cypress Hill and all the acts on this tour are vocal, well-known supporters of ending marijuana prohibition, and we look forward to joining them in this effort to change attitudes and inspire activism on marijuana-related issues across the U.S.”
