Thirteen years after his chart-topping hit 'Because I Got High' was released, Afroman has created a new version of the song to support marijuana legalization.
Despite its catchy, upbeat hook, Because I Got High actually painted a bleak picture of what smoking pot will do to your productivity (hint: your room probably won't get cleaned). The updated version, which was created with the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws and Weedmaps, focuses on the positive effects of marijuana, from medical benefits to tax cuts. Everything from anxiety attacks to hangovers are, thanks to marijuana, a thing of the past.
The melody, lyrics and accompanying music video are just as playful and free-spirited as the original.
