To celebrate 4-20, AG scoured Youtube for some of the best acoustic-based songs about marijuana. We came up with hits (Brewer & Shipley’s No. 10 single of 1971, “One Toke Over the Line”), underground obscurities (David Peel’s “Marijuana”), classic performances (Arlo Guthrie’s smuggler’s anthem “Coming into Los Angeles,” from the Woodstock movie), as well as more recent performances of oldies by Little Feat (“Willin'”/”Don’t Bogart Me”) and the New Riders of the Purple Sage with Peter Rowan (“Panama Red”).

Let this be the soundtrack of your day. Happy tokin’, and keep it between the lines.
