Pot and poetry

Posted By on Tue, Feb 23, 2010 at 4:27 PM

Montana NORML has announced a haiku contest (or is it high-ku?), and the winner will receive $100.

The details:

Win $100 by submitting the haiku which best illustrates why marijuana should be legal for responsible adults. You can use imagery, metaphor, experiences, or just straightforward statements.

Submit your entry as a comment on this blog post. Please use the traditional English format with three lines (5-7-5 syllables is nice too, though we won’t be too picky). Your submission must be your own, original writing. This is designed to be a fun and creative way for folks to express sentiments about legalization. No advertisements, please.

Check out the comments below the story to read the entries.

Our favorite so far:

It grows in the dirt
and so do my tomatoes
It’s a plant dammit!

The deadline is March 20.
