In a recent post titled “Hashville Skyline”, Slate describes the way that references to marijuana has infiltrated into country music tracks over the last decade or so. In this single, from the Pistol Annies‘ new album Annie Upone of the singers describes how she relieved the tension surrounding a drunken family Christmas dinner by sneaking out for some weed:

So I snuck out behind the red barn
And I took myself a toke
Since everybody here hates everybody here
Hell I might as well be the joke

In future editions of “Tox Tunes”, we’ll visit some of the other country songs in which pot makes an appearance.
