Top Five Hip-hop Stoner Anthems, Interpreted

Stoners and hip-hop go together like weed and paper. But did you know that there's a lesson to be learned from many hip-hop songs about sweet mary jane? It's virtually Ganja Smoking 101 set to on and get schooled.

"Pack the Pipe," Pharcyde

Key lyric: My lungs are black and shriveled up like a raisin / But who am I to deny the kid a try / At nature's little way of sayin' hi?

The message: Stoner parents: The little ones know what you're up to, so go ahead and pass the bowl to your pre-schooler. At least it's not crack.

"Hits From the Bong," Cypress Hill

Key lyric: There's water inside don't spill it / It smells like shit on the carpet

The message: There's no excuse to ever knock the bong over. Ever. Doesn't matter how high you get, don't be that guy.

"How to Roll a Blunt," Redman

Key lyric: Take your finger and your thumb from tip to tip / Roll it in a motion then the top piece you lick

The message: The end-all guide to enjoying weed-filled cigars, from production through consumption, Wu-Tang style.

"I Smell Smoke," Mystikal

Key lyric: Fuck I just went to jail for that shit / I ain't goin back, I done ate an ounce, and I'm a flush the rest / Cuz I ain't going out like that

The message: Remember to keep calm and composed despite being blown out of your gourd lest you may flush your stash unnecessarily.

"Smoke Weed Every Day," Dr. Dre feat. Snoop Dogg and Nate Dogg

Key lyric: Hey-ay-ay-ay / Smoke weed every day.

The message: The late great Nate Dogg sums it up best--if you're celebrating this holiday, you most likely celebrate it every day. So be proud.
