2. Easy Skankin' - Bob Marley

There's nothing I can't say about herb and life that Robert Nesta Marley hasn't put a million times more eloquently through song.

1. Legalize it - Peter Tosh

Tosh was an innovator and brilliant musician as well as a ganja crusader who wrote what is arguably the top pro-cannabis anthems ever written. This tune also has the distinction as being the first song I ever listened to when I got stoned for the very first time (thanks, cool cousin R.D.). Because of Peter Tosh, I learned that herb is also called tampeh, the weed, collie, marijuana and ganja. I learned not to criticize it, and that nurses, doctors, judges, and even lawyers smoke it (though clearly not enough of the latter two).

Happy 4/20, friends.
