I’m that high that you get on, from that burning stuff
First schedule drug in the house yo, that good enough?

Drugs are really bad for yo health
and burn through yo wealth.
Marijuana be schedule 1 drug, boi
nothing good fo yo’self

Causing slow reactions, hallucinations,
Insomnia, disorientation,
Don’t forget lack of coordination
So hey
Don’t do spice and weed.
