Arrtist Statement:

Written during the first days of Occupy Wall Street, Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Cannabis is an attempt to satirize both late night television programming and the protesting that filled our nation’s economic capital during the fall of 2011.  Taking on the form of a half-hour television pilot, Cannabis mocks the historic event by tethering to it stereotypical marijuana shenanigans, horrible infomercials, YouTube videos, and recontextualized scenes from Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing.  Author Dustin Blake Grayson has created a pastiche of protests and pop culture.  Occupy this, Wall Street!
