Afroman Remakes ‘Because I Got High’ with Positive Spin to Support Marijuana Reform

If you were listening to music on the radio back in 2001, chances are you probably heard Afroman’s hit “Because I Got High” at least a handful of times.

The original song lyrics painted marijuana enthusiasts as irresponsible and lazy folks who couldn’t get their lives together because of their smoking habits. But now Afroman has teamed up with National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws and Weedmaps to remake the classic with a positive take to shed light on all the benefits of making marijuana legal.

Wherever you may stand on the issue, you have to agree this is a pretty fun take on the classic. Check out the news clip above and the full remake below.
