Afroman’s “Because I Got High” Positive Remix Is Everything

Bet Afroman didn’t expect that his once racy “Because I Got High” would be needing a positive-spin makeover 15 years later. Weedmaps nailed this one.

Bet Afroman didn’t expect that his once racy “Because I Got High” would be needing a positive-spin makeover 15 years later.

The infamous track is well-known by stoners and squares alike, once cherished for its thorough yet degrading attribution to the herb.

But with all the unmasking of marijuana propaganda and education surrounding its benefits, today the lyrics are suddenly much more offensive to cannabis supporters and in clear opposition to the movement.

Weedmaps, realizing this, gives us another brilliant production (in close competition with Weed Snobs), taking the track out of the cannabis closet and restoring the love for herb from whence it came.
