Smoke Grass

If you smoke it, grass is marijuana. If you cut it, it's your lawn. Actually bluegrass is something you could put on your lawn, too - it's a kind of grass that grows in Kentucky (The Bluegrass State!) Bluegrass music comes from the South and is named for the area where the grass grows. It's often played fast, featuring acoustic stringed instruments, such as mandolins, violins, banjos and guitars. Though not quite as fashionable as, say, hip-hop music, it has a following and has recently enjoyed more popularity since being featured on the soundtrack to O Brother Where Art Thou.
