…in which The Kid tries to “bend it like Herblock”.


At the instigation of my old BBF and comrade Adam Eidinger at DCMJ, here’s a Herblock homage depicting DC’s special friends, US Reps. Andy Harris and Jason Chaffetz on the news that 60% of Americans surveyed now support legal marijuana (Gallup, October 2016), on the occasion of the April 24th Capitol Smoke-In.
