‘Everybody Must Get Stoned’: Weed in the Music Industry

Published

on

Weed and Music

Nobel Prize in Literature Awardee Bob Dylan once sang, “Everybody must get stoned.” This song is considered an anthem for weed enthusiasts all around the world. Because of this, you might be wondering how prevalent cannabis is in the music industry. Well, you are in luck because we are about to show you songs and musicians influenced by the plants. Read on!

Weed Music – Songs about Marijuana

Now, the easiest way to spot the influence of this plant in the music industry is to look at the songs that pertain to it. Here are 4 remarkable songs that made its way into cannabis enthusiasts’ hearts.

Rainy Day Women #12 and 35 by Bob Dylan

This song is incorrectly credited as the origin of 420, as 12 multiplied by 35 is 420. Now that the myth has been debunked, it is clear that the song’s lyrics are responsible for the rise of this myth. Its verses all end with the phrase “everybody must get stoned” earning its place in the cannabis world’s hall of fame.

Whilst Dylan announced that he has never written and will never write a ‘drug’ song, most cannabis enthusiasts interpreted the line to be referring to the plant. After all, the artist does not consider the plant a drug and that it “just bends your mind a little,” pertaining to the psychoactive effect of the herb. Meanwhile, the Nobel awardee denies that the song is pertaining to weed, but ultimately, the majority of listeners interpret it that way. The cannabis world has given it recognition as a hemp-themed song and was even included in Hempilation, a collection of covers of songs about marijuana by The Black Crowes.

Kaya by Bob Marley

Reggae is a music genre which has always been known for its pro-marijuana messages, style and advocacies. Keeping with the genre’s support for the herb, Kaya certainly upholds ideals purported by Reggae songs and artists. In fact, the title of the song itself is named after a Jamaican term for the plant. If this is not proof enough to show how this song refers to weed, you are in for a treat because the lyrics are more direct in showing the effects of the plant.

On this song, Marley sings that he ‘feels so high, he even touches the sky,” and that he ‘feels so good in his neighborhood. Referring to the euphoria and relaxation brought by cannabinoids, it can be said that the song definitely pertains to hemp. So, if you are looking for a song to listen to as you get your share of the body high from your THC-rich cannabis product, Kaya is certainly a great choice.

Smoke Break by Chance the Rapper

Of the four songs in this list, “Smoke BreaK” is the only one that uses cannabis as a way of storytelling. The lyrics tell the story in the singer’s change in lifestyle when he and his partner got a child. According to him, their lives became a whirlwind of all work and having to take care of the child, that everything between them became rushed.

fThis song is notable for its use of the plant as a narrative device, as well as a metaphor for catching a break and spending downtime with a loved one. After all, don’t we all deserve a break, even if it involves a smoke or not?

Legalize it by Peter Tosh

Released in 1976, this song is ahead of its time when Peter Tosh sang, “Legalize it, don’t criticize it.” In the song, Tosh mentions that it is “good for the flu, good for asthma, good for tuberculosis, even Numara thrombosis.” This shows that even then, the medicinal benefits of cannabis with the help of cannabidiol. Well, it seems that Tosh’s words were heard as medical marijuana is now legal in the majority of the United States, the whole of  Uruguay and Canada, as well as in some European countries. It is even on the way to legalization in some parts of Asia and the whole world.

In a way, this song is both an advocacy and a celebration of cannabis. It advocates the legalization of marijuana which was not achieved until a few decades after, in the 2000s. Aside from this, the song celebrates the use of the herb by a variety of people including singers, musicians, doctors, nurses, judges and lawyers. In fact, birds, ants and fowls consume it, as well. With this, legalize it is not only an anthem for supporting the legalization of weed but also of the people who use it.

Some Musicians Who Consumed Cannabis

Aside from the songs mentioned above, there are thousands upon thousands of songs that allude to the wonder plant. Because of this, you might wonder: are there really that many artists who consume cannabis? The answer is yes. Here are just some of the popular and successful musicians who regularly consumed this herb:

The Beatles

The Beatlemania took the world by storm and rightfully so. While the band was not the first to perform rock and roll, they are credited as the saviors of the music genre. Their fun and creative music style, as well as their genius, wit and charm launched them into ultimate stardom. While their songs were written largely thanks to their talent, but it is possible that hemp has a role in some of their musical productions as well. The band was properly introduced to weed during one of their tours. Who introduced them? It is no other than the equally legendary artist, Bob Dylan.

Bob Marley

Known as the King of Reggae, Bob Marley has been really immersed in the cannabis world during his time. From writing and singing songs that celebrate marijuana, this Marley had done so much for the industry. In fact, a new line of medical marijuana was named in honor of Marley. Aptly named Marley Natural, the line carries a variety of products including dried buds, cannabidiol oil and body care.

Brendon Urie

In an interview, Brendon Urie revealed that he experienced a reclusionary period in which he only wanted to stay in the comfort of his home and ‘smoke weed all day.’ In fact, you can search the net for videos of him smoking on stage and you will certainly find one. If you are wondering if he is allowed to do so, you can bet he is because he is a medical marijuana card holder. His card was reportedly issued for his ADHD treatment.

From CBD Oil to Joints: Living the High Life

Aside from musicians, other artists such as writers and painters can all benefit from what weed has to offer. So, whether you are an aspiring singer or you are following a different profession, you also have a lot to gain from the various medicinal and recreational properties of this plant. Check out some ways you can live the high life just like your cannabis-inspired idols.

So, if you want to make your lifestyle similar to your musical idols, you might want to incorporate weed into your daily routine. You can start by lacing your morning coffee with a hint of CBD oil, then move on to eating cannabis-infused gummies when you need a fix. If you are comfortable smoking the stuff, there is nothing preventing you from doing so – aside from state laws, of course! So, make it a point to check your state’s marijuana laws.

CBD at Work

Cannabidiol’s legalization has made it a permanent fixture in the lives of tens and thousands of people around the globe, particularly those who suffer from chronic pain, anxiety, and other medical conditions.

With CBD products available in just about every state in the country, it cannot be denied that workplace rules and regulations around the use of these items have come to light. After all, many employers are concerned not only about the performance of these employees in the workplace, but also whether or not it’s appropriate to even take CBD at work in the first place.

A Brief Overview on CBD

CBD at work

Cannabidiol (CBD) is one of the chemicals found in cannabis and hemp plants. Unlike tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), this compound does not cause users to feel intoxicated or to be high as it is a non-psychoactive compound.

Under the Farm Bill of 2018, all hemp-derived products are now considered legal. This means that cannabidiol oil and products from hemp can now be sold and be available on the market. However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has only approved one drug that uses CBD to treat epilepsy, namely Epidiolex.

Cannabidiol is highly praised in the cannabis community not only for its non-psychoactive components, but also for its numerous health claims. It is often used for treating chronic pain, anxiety, insomnia, addiction, and a host of other medical conditions.

CBD at Work and the impairment and intoxication it brings

Despite being legal throughout different states, it is not surprising that CBD still garners a certain stigma to it, especially since there are still unregulated products out there are that are not 100% pure CBD. This means that not only does it exceed the allowed 0.3% THC, which is still not intoxicating, but it can potentially alter employee performance.

Unless a product has been thoroughly tested and verified by a third-party laboratory saying that cannabidiol products from this brand and line do not contain THC, individuals run the risk of employees testing positive for marijuana in case they are subjected to a drug test by their employers.

As a matter of fact, there have been numerous instances in the past where employees have been fired from their work after testing positive for the drug, even though they have only taken CBD-marketed products. This resulted in lawsuits against manufacturers who claimed that their products are made from pure CBD.

Since impure cannabidiol products can have effects on users, there have been agencies such as the Department of Transportation (DOT) that have issued mandates against the use of cannabidiol in the workplace. These include school bus drivers, truck drivers, and even police officers.

However, for those not under the jurisdiction of the Department of Transportation, the use of cannabidiol at work remains under the existing employer-employee contracts and under the current rules and regulations. This means that individuals who opt to use CBD in the workplace may not be covered by protections who test positive for the drug, unlike those who are using medical marijuana.

Communication at the Core

For all concerned parties to be given the proper protection they need, education and communication should remain at the center. This entails employees being given the education and implications of using CBD, and by extension, the potential contamination of THC into these products.

At the same time, it is imperative that workers are in the know about the existing drug and alcohol policies in the workplace. While the use of cannabidiol will not put individuals under the influence, there are still accompanying risks to using CBD and there are implications when a positive marijuana test is obtained.

Conclusion

Although there are certain states such as New York that are now taking strides in changing existing labor laws on employee cannabis drug testing, there is still a long way to go when it comes to revising these drug testing policies and how it perceives CBD use. So, be sure to be wary about using cbd at work in the meantime and learn about your workplace drug rules to be on the safe side.
