The Top Stoner Songs of All Time, Part 2

18. I Like Marijuana - David Peel & the Lower East Side (1968)
Another humorous song, this one was written and performed by David Peel, who over the years has probably penned more stoner songs than anyone. Featured on his major-label debut, Have a Marijuana, it's based on the 1961 song "Peanut Butter" ("pea-nut, peanut butter" > "mari- marijuana"). "I wanna be a hippie, got to get stoned on marijuana," Peel sings with repeats from his backup band. Covered by the 360's (1995).
