It was 2001.  Jay and Silent Bob were a big deal, finally starring in their own movie.  And marijuana being legalized for medical reasons was a completely random thought that few thought would ever happen.  Then there was a novelty song that hit.  Afroman's "Because I Got High."  A comedy hip-hop tongue in cheek of the problems related to marijuana abuse, while praising it's use.  And it would soar, comparable to "Gangam Style" or "What Does The Fox Say."

Now, may years later, the world has changed, and medical marijuana has been legalized in a couple states.  So it was about time the song got an update.  See the results below.  Not as comical as the original, as it's kind of taken a more political stance, but it works.  Now where can we get a remote controlled couch on wheels?
