Press Release – I like Pot, I like it a Lot! Heard throughout South Austin last night – Jet Baker Stoner Love Songs CD Release Party / Benefit for NORML – Announcing a DVD will be created to benefit NORML

Ruta Maya International Headquarters was apparently the place to be if you were anywhere near Austin Texas on August 4th 2008. Cars, trucks, scooters and bikes owned Jet Baker fans and NORML supporters filled the parking lots and side streets around Penn Field. The residents of the new “fancy like” condos adjacent to Ruta Maya were welcomed with the sounds of “Who Who Who, Who got the Marijuana” as Jet Baker launched into his 1 hour and 10 minute set.

After everyone danced their butts off to the set by Burro Magic and The Blood Diamond, Jet Baker welcomed Josh Shimberg, President of Texas NORML to the stage. Josh updated the crowd on how NORML is influencing changes in marijuana laws right here in our community. He know how to get a crow fired up. Josh was interrupted often by ‘hell yeahs’, “right ons”, and spontaneous Texas style hootin n hollerin in support of NORML. After a few more Jet Baker songs including Britney for President, Jet introduced Matt Finkel, Pro Cannabis Libertarian Candidate for the 10th Congressional District in Texas (right here in Austin). Matt introduced himself and spoke on his candidacy and his pro-marijuana position.

Jet started his journey through the new set of songs called Stoner Love
Songs. Throughout the set Jet danced in the wildflowers dressing the set and
threw flowers to the crowd. Some sang along to every word, a group called Ganja Girls 4 Jet Baker danced in the pit in their red Stoner Love Songs T’s all night. And then some at the show were shocked. When the comment was made afterward to Jet by a concert goer about the racy nature of some of the songs and sex in the lyrics Jet Baker replied “It’s Stoner Love Songs. It’s about smoking pot, getting naked and making love. What were you expecting?

For the last 20 minutes the sassy and sexy P,Kat joined Jet on stage for songs from several Jet Baker CDs. ‘She’s not always with me on stage and it’s so special and much for fun for me when she’s here with me. I’m so glad Kat could make it to the CD Release NORML Benefit. She went out of her way to get here for this because of NORML. She’s got the biggest heart.”

The evening was memorable. Fun was had by everyone, T Shirts were sold, CDs purchased and NORML made some money to help in efforts to change marijuana laws. Proceeds of Stoner Love Song T Shirts, I Like Pot buttons, Hydro Hoochie Buttons and Jet Baker CDs went to Texas NORML. Jet Baker ended the evening with the song I like Pot which is available to download absolutely free ONLY at NORML.org. Everyone sang along and the folks next door in the new “fancy like”
condo high rise were welcomed to south Austin with the infectious chant “I like Pot, I like it a Lot”!

Jet Baker is announcing today that a new PayPal website will be created for the exclusive sale of Jet Baker merchandise to benefit NORML. Stoner Love Songs T Shirts, Hydro Hoochi buttons and I Like Pot buttons will be for sale on the site. All the profits from the items will be donated to NORML.

Also a DVD of last night’s Stoner Love Songs CD Release Concert / Benefit for NORML will produced. The DVD will be distributed by FilmBaby and all profits will go to NORML. “It was a great show with sound information about NORML and how easy it is for anyone to help influence changes in marijuana laws. Now my fans world wide that weren’t able will be able to attend the magical evening will be able to be part of it and help the cause,” Jet Baker proudly announces to the world.
