The 50 Best Weed Songs

38. Rita Marley "One Draw" (1981)

Album: Who Feels It Knows It
Producer: Grub Cooper/Rita Marley/Bob MarleyReleased the same year her husband Bob died from cancer, Rita's enthusiastic ode to sensimilia “One Draw” was a big hit in her homeland and around the world. In England, where her song was treated like the Sex Pistols "God Save The Queen" and banned by the BBC, the track went on to sell over 2 million copies. Back home in Jamaica, the “respectables” were appalled by the skit in the middle of the record where a class of teenagers schools their teachers on the powers of pot. One love, indeed.
