Dr. Dre | The Chronic
Dr. Dre | The Chronic – Dusty P-Funk samples + Snoop Dogg + badass album title = iconic ganja classic

Listen: Nuthin’ But A G Thang

Peter Tosh | Legalize It
Peter Tosh | Legalize It – “Legalize it, and I will advertise it” Peter Tosh offered in the title track of this 1976 album. And the tune and album both remain first-rate ads for the product…

Listen: Legalize It

Cypress Hill | Cypress Hill
Cypress Hill | Cypress Hill – One of the first hip-hop groups to openly and repeatedly rhyme about getting baked, Cypress Hill combine a fascination with guns and an undying love of bongs.

Listen: Light Another

Black Sabbath | Master Of Reality
Black Sabbath | Master Of Reality – This album begins with the sounds of a pot smoker coughing – the opening strains of pot ode ‘Sweet Leaf’ – but the whole album sounds like it was conceived inside a hash pipe.

Various Artists | Reefer Songs: 16 Jazz Classics

Various Artists | Reefer Songs: 16 Original Jazz Classics – ‘Sweet Marijuana Brown’ ‘Weed Smokers Dream’ and ‘Who Put The Benzedrine In Mrs Murphy’s Ovaltine’ are but three of the entertaining tunes on this compilation of Jazz from the 30s that proves heads have been at it since before your grandparents were in short pants.

Listen: [No MP3 available]

Sublime | 40 Oz. To Freedom
Sublime | 40 Oz. To Freedom – Sublime was part punk, part reggae, part funk, and their amped cover of The Toys’ ‘Smoke Two Joints’ is just one of many weed-friendly moments on their excellent debut album.

Listen: Smoke Two Joints

The Black Crowes | Amorica
The Black Crowes | Amorica – This album isn’t about pot per se, but since the early 90s The Crowes have been some of the strongest marijuana advocates on the rock scene.

Listen: High Head Blues

Various Artists | How High Soundtrack
Various Artists | How High Soundtrack – Method Man and Redman star in the movie, and take center stage on this hilarious, smoke-filled soundtrack.

Listen: How To Roll A Blunt

Fela Kuti | Zombie – Fela Kuti smoked copious amounts of grass onstage, and his music is perfect for the activity, with deep, repetitive rhythms wrapped in black magic.

    What’s marijuana?

    Furr, come visit Portland and I’ll show you.

  5. Jonesy Says:

    Great baker’s dozen collection…hmmm donuts… I would also recommend the Chocolate Supa Highway album by Spearhead. Franti brought along Stephen Marley on this one and created some great stoney tracks including ‘Ganja Babe’ and ‘Comin’ to Getcha’, that is if you don’t mind a little seduction with your grass.

    *Ray Charles’ ‘Let’s Go Get Stoned’ refers to alcohol I believe, but is definitely straight to the point and should at least get a footnoted mention. Incidentally due to this song Ray Charles’ albums were banned in Singapore.

    Enjoy these last six days of 4/20…that’s how it works right?…It’s like Hanukkah. Thanks for the musical suggestions for the best 10 day holiday of the year!

    Come visit Amsterdam and smoke the best weed in the world.

    Beneficial information and facts dealing with history of cocaine cowboys rngb.
    Thanks for sharing with us.

    Thanks for your post. I would also like to say that a health insurance agent also works well with the benefit of the particular coordinators of a group insurance cover. The health insurance professional is given a long list of benefits desired by somebody or a group coordinator. Exactly what a broker will is seek out individuals or coordinators which in turn best fit those wants. Then he gifts his recommendations and if both sides agree, the broker formulates legal contract between the two parties.

    Here is a statement from the one presidential candidate who actively supports the legalization of medical marijuana nationwide! “Patients receiving cannabinoids [smoked marijuana and marijuana pills] had improved immune function compared with those receiving placebo. They also gained about 4 pounds more on average than those patients receiving placebo.” You can read more and support her campaign on her site http://denisebedio.com/marijuana.
