Thirteen years have passed since Afroman’s original version reached Number One in the UK charts. He has just released a brand new remix of his hit song ‘Because I Got High’ in support of the legalization of marijuana. The song contains some new reworked lyrics along with Afroman and his political message to the US Government.

Two US states and the District Of Columbia will be voting to legalise marijuana on November 4, while Florida will be voting on a medical marijuana amendment.

Sabrina Fendrick from the National Organization For The Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) said:

“NORML is thrilled to have brought Weedmaps and Afroman together to create this unique cultural collaboration merging art, entertainment, and activism into a single campaign that highlights many of the positive benefits of cannabis, and raises awareness for the legalisation initiatives coming up in the 2014 November elections.”
