I hadn't put this together before... Joe mentions that a police officer found 5 marijuana plants on McCartney's HIGH Park Farm.

The following people thank Ahhh Girl for this post:

Like @Joe 's write-up suggests, this is one big pile of druggy single which McCartney "didn't know" (a likely story) would be taken out of context or on face value. If Hi, Hi, Hi wasn't going to clue you in, C Moon is the slam-dunk of 420 smoke bongs errydai. It's quite brazen and hilarious. For all the controversy, Hi, Hi, Hi is a big old 12 bar rock song, there's nothing much remarkable about it, but it is a fine example of Paul's rock singing.

I'm like Necko only I'm a bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin and also everyone. Or is everyone me? Now I'm a confused bassist ukulele guitar synthesizer kazoo penguin everyone who is definitely not @Joe.  This has been true for 2016 & 2017 Sig-Badge.png but I may have to get more specific in the future.
