<h1><em>“</em>Because I Got High,<em>”</em> Positive Remix &nbsp;(2014 / 2000)</h1>
<p>This song is a positive and humorous revision of Afroman’s original from 2000, <em>“Because I Got High”</em>&nbsp; – which took a rather negative look at the subject. In fact, Afroman created this new version in support of efforts to legalize marijuana across the US.&nbsp;</p>
<h3>High Time For a Change</h3>
<p>Whereas the 2000 original told us how the man’s life was falling apart, apparently because he got high, this positive version relates how, ironically, the man now <em>“care(s) about everything.”</em>&nbsp;</p>
<div class="pull-right">https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmVyjyzATDpBtRewUbM2ufbtbsrjAztuvcgCxAmJKeG8zf/image.png</div>
Not only that, everything is getting better with marijuana. Weed alleviated his medical condition; he stopped smoking cigarettes; he’s stopped drinking booze and taking dodgy prescription drugs; and he’s now free of both hangovers and anxiety attacks.
<h3>Reefer Madness, Reefer Goodness&nbsp;</h3>
<p>Moreover, he’s become a <i>“productive”</i> &nbsp; member of society. With all the tax revenue that the government rakes in from his excessive expenditure on weed, it can build a few schools. &nbsp;&nbsp;</p>
<p>Strange. Just a few decades ago, marijuana ruined the lives of those who smoked it. Now, it’s not only improving their lives, but also benefiting society as a whole. Just think … our society subjected itself to long decades of reefer madness, for no reason whatsoever.  &nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="https://www.rollingstone.com/music/music-news/afroman-releases-because-i-got-high-remake-to-support-pot-legalization-188941/"><i><sub>(Image source)</sub></i> </a>

<h1>Afroman</h1>
Afroman is a US rapper (real name, Joseph Edgar Foreman). &nbsp;</p>
<h3>Striking Back</h3>

He began his career while still a young school student. After his teacher expelled him for wearing drooping pants, he composed a song about her. The song became a hit of sorts, selling over 400 copies in his community. 
<h3>Solo and So Independent</h3>
In 2002, the original <em>“Because I Hot High”</em>&nbsp; was nominated for a Grammy award as the <em>“Best Rap Solo Performance.”</em><p>
Since 2004, Afroman has been releasing his music indepently of any labels, relying primarily on distribution through or over the internet.  &nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="https://soundcloud.com/djgeminichris/afroman-because-i-got-high"><i><sub>(Image source)</sub></i> </a>

<i> Ironically... I care about everything<br>
Check it out, playboys<p>
I had problems with glaucoma, but then I got high<br>
Smelled the cannabis aroma, and I got high<br>
Glaucoma getting better and I know why<br>
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high <p>
I used to smoke cigarettes, but then I got high<br>
Getting tired and call it quits, but then I got high<br>
I'm playing basketball and jogging and I know why<br>
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high<p>
I used to drink beer and wine, but then I got high<br>
I woke up feeling fine, because I got high<br>
My hangover's over and I know why<br>
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high<p>
Anxiety attacks, but then I got high<br>
I used to take Xanax, but then I got high<br>
No more prescription pills and I know why<br>
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high<p>
The state made revenue, because I got high<br>
They built a school or two, because I got high<br>
Now the state can fund drug treatment and I know why<br>
Because I got high, because I got high, because I got high<p>
No more criminal traps if it's legalized<br>
I don't have to buy from gang bangers shooting craps, if it's legalized<br>
I can advocate with Weedmaps and I know why<br>
It's legalized, it's legalized, it's legalized      </i>
