SONG: The Story behind “Renee and the Drug Squad”

This song is dedicated to a true hero in the fight for good, right, and humanity – Renee Boje – while souless forces are at work against her we hope that this song can contribute to the awareness that will defeat the hate. Fight all the way – we love you Renee! Johnny Punish and the Shabbab

Renee Boje was seen watering plants for medical marijuana patient Todd McCormick and indicted as a co-conspirator. Todd was not allowed to raise a medical use defense in federal court and pled guilty for a sentence reduction of 5 years. Renee fled to Canada and faced 10 years if she was forced to return. While Renee Boje played a very minimal role in her case, conspiracy laws will punish her for the activities of everyone involved, even people she’s never met. We have an important opportunity to help shape the relationship between Canada and the US regarding victims of the Drug War, especially cases involving cannabis for medicinal purposes. So learn more and get involved!

In 2006, after 8 years of war, the DEA finally agreed with Renee’s lawyers in a plea agreement whereby Renee took probation and returned back to Canada. She is now in Canada with her family and free!

LYRICS

Renee and the Drug Squad (Punish/Clash)

It’s Dylan in the Sky nothin’ left of apple pie
We stare at the screen cause cancer go mean
And Renee’s in the rain
Ganja heals the pain
But sooner or later the Cannucks will realize
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad

Well it seemed like a dream too good to be true
The weed grows high so the patients can live
In their millions
Don’t ya know you gotta give
But there’s someone looking down
From that mountainside
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad

It’s 10 years for you
19 for you
May get us for 25
That is if we’re all alive

And then there came the night of the greatest ever raid
They arrested all Renees that had ever been made
But she’s not there
Off to Canada to fight what’s fair
But they didn’t halt the pull
Cause those jails are all full
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad
Renee’s been fighin gainst the drug squad

Well they put her in court in the land of the snow
And Cotler said Renee that it’s time that you go
You’ve gotta face the man
You’re a thorn in our plan
But she’s gonna give a fight
Cause Renee stands alright
RENE’S BEEN FIGHTING AGAINST THE DRUG SQUAD
RENE’S A HERO AGAINST THE DRUG SQUAD

COTLER!

It’s 10 years for you
19 for you
Try to get us for 25
That is if we’re all alive
IT’S NOT FAIR, D.E.A., FREE RENEE BOJE
