Using Mozilla for this post has been a total pain in the ass.
Theinspiration behind this piece is a song by Toronto MC 4th Pyramid entitled "Aquatic". Neat, eh? Now, anyone that kno ws me can tell you that I'm not an advocate for illegal drug use, but over the years, there have been some rap songs I like that have done just that. The first two that come to mind are Pharcyde's "Pack the Pipe" and Cypress Hill's "Hits From the Bong". Come to think of it, you put Cypress'"Stoned Is the Way of the Walk" right up there in smokin' top 10. As far as partaking in the actual activity? Hell no.
For the sake of comparison, here's the original drawing before the digital messin' around:
And just to show you where I'm comin' from, here's the song:
