For his Weedsday Playlist, Terrence White turned to the musical roots of his memories. He shares, “Music is a big part of who I am. I used to be a promoter back in the day. These songs may not be what you would expect from a Black returned citizen, but I know they’ll make your next smoking sesh enlightening.”

This is a song you can either hyper-focus on or just let it run in the background and enjoy the vibe.
