A popular topic in today’s country music, nostalgia is infectious, it’s relatable. Songs that harken back to simpler times when life wasn’t so complicated, so disposable. It’s a feeling that we love because we’re all just trying to get back there.
Back to the days when you were just a kid fishing with your grandpa, back to that Friday night at that Homecoming football game, your first kiss, your first car… and a delicious bump of that homegrown Montana meth.
Montana Senator Steve Daines recently gave a speech regarding the influx of Cartel-made drugs in the state of Montana, and he took a… unique approach to drive his point home. Long story short, he misses that homegrown, Montana-made, lab-to-table meth that they made twenty years ago.
Sen. Steve Daines: “Twenty years ago in Montana, meth was homemade. It was homegrown. And you had purity levels less than 30%. Today the meth that is getting into Montana is Mexican cartel.” pic.twitter.com/Xtu1geaVxJ
My experience with meth pretty much starts and ends at a few seasons of Breaking Bad, but I suppose there is something be said about homegrown meth. I mean, we all like things made close to home, right? Gimme a mom and pop show over a corporate giant like Walmart or Target any day. Sounds to me like the Mexican Cartel and Amazon have a lot in common… just pushing out the little guys.
All of this actually reminds me a bit of that old song by Tim McGraw, “Back When.”
“Back when a hoe was a hoe Coke was a coke, And the meth that you were doin’ Was made right here at home…”
