Top 10 Country Songs About Weed

Songs about weed have pervaded country music for decades, but it seems now more than ever there is a general acceptance of the use of the drug across the genre.

Everyone from Zac Brown Band to Kacey Musgraves is referencing smoking weed in their tunes lately, if not directly writing songs centered around the typically illicit activity. Amid discussions nationwide of legalizing the drug, artists like Willie Nelson have become well-known advocates in recent years, and many other country artists feel similarly.

Whether it’s mentioned in passing as a way to relax and party or championed as a solution for many of life’s ills, marijuana is a focal point for many songwriters in today’s country landscape. We’ve put together a list of some of the best.

“Sun Daze”

For Florida Georgia Line, there’s such thing as a perfect day, and for them that means wearing flip flops and shades, drinking Jack and Coke, and getting stoned. The artists’ tune “Sun Daze” is a summer anthem dedicated to that state of mind, and smoking pot seems to be an integral part of the itinerary. In the music video, the band takes full advantage of the summer to do all of those things and more, hanging out by the pool, doing a slip-n-slide and drinking with friends. The tune is off the band’s Anything Goes album and was released as its second single in September 2014, hitting No. 1 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and No. 3 on the Hot Country Songs chart.

“Sunday Morning Coming Down”

Written by Kris Kristoffersen, “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” is a somber tune about the morning after a long night of intoxication, but also about a greater sense of emptiness. Johnny Cash’s version, released in 1970, certainly captures the depressing sight of a man who notes he wished he were stoned so he wouldn’t have to face seeing all the other happy people enjoying life or sleeping peacefully in their homes while he was in such pain. The tune is not necessarily just about marijuana, but it does feature prominently throughout the song. Cash’s “Sunday Mornin’ Comin’ Down” reached No. 1 on the Billboard Hot Country Singles chart the year of its release.

“Stoned at the Jukebox”

Hank Williams, Jr. wrote this lament about a lost love for his 1990 album Lone Wolf, and its desperation still shines through the lyrics and Williams’ voice today. The narrator of “Stoned at the Jukebox” is left devastated by a girl who left, but manages to get by during the day. Unfortunately, the night eventually comes and he turns to vices to get him through, leaving him “stoned at the jukebox” listening to sad songs and wallowing in his pain. It doesn’t reveal whether marijuana helped him out at all, but it does imply it played a role in his recovery, for better or for worse. The song was not a single for Williams, but it’s got his trademark style and a focus on lighting up that earns it a slot in our Top 10.

“High Cost of Living”

Jamey Johnson’s “High Cost of Living” is more of a cautionary tale about marijuana and other drugs than a celebratory one, telling a personal story about his struggle with addiction and eventually overcoming it. The song describes his life in a haze, with no real grasp on reality or what he was giving up by staying high all the time. “My life was just an old routine, every day the same damn thing, I couldn’t even tell I was alive,” Johnson sings of this time in his life. “The high cost of living ain’t nothing like the cost of living high,” he concludes. The song was Johnson’s second single off his third studio record released in 2008, titled The Lonesome Song. It was rated No. 38 on Rolling Stone’s list of the top 100 songs from that year, and peaked at No. 34 on the country charts.

“Ready to Roll”

“Ready to Roll,” from Blake Shelton’s 2011 Red River Blue album, is a laid-back weekend tune with a Motown-style bass line and a dash of Jimmy Buffett flair. While it’s a bit more subtle than some of the other songs on our list, it’s clear Shelton has a specific experience in mind when he says, “let’s kick back and take a trip.” The song title’s double meaning is not lost in context as Shelton suggests how to unwind after a long week. The tune was co-written by Jim Beavers, Jonathan Singleton and three-time CMA winner Chris Stapleton, and though it wasn’t released as a single, it’s one of Shelton’s more memorable tunes.

“Weed Instead of Roses”

An unapologetic ditching of typical romantic tropes, Ashley Monroe’s “Weed Instead of Roses” is an irreverent note to a long-time partner, hoping to spice up the relationship a bit. The artist takes a bold approach to a common real-life situation — getting stuck in a rut with your spouse or long-term significant other — and suggests trying some less conventional tactics. “Bring me weed instead of roses, whiskey instead of wine,” she sings. “I don’t need a card from Hallmark, box of chocolates, Heaven knows, bring me weed instead of roses, and let’s see where it goes.” The lighthearted, flirty tune has a traditional country spin, as does the video, which looks like it was filmed in the early ’80s. “Let’s go call your no-good brother, we both know what he’s been growin’,” Monroe continues, unashamedly propositioning some Mary Jane to change up the routine. The song, co-written by Monroe, was released as the third single from her record Like a Rose in 2013.

“Weed With Willie”

Though it wasn’t always the case, Willie Nelson has become the official champion of marijuana usage in country music, and Toby Keith reinforced this sentiment with his tune “Weed with Willie.” Inspired by Keith and co-writer Scotty Emerick’s experiences at Farm Aid with Nelson, it tells of a backstage hang out with the icon, who offered the new guys a “fat boy and he passed it around.” Apparently it was too strong for the songwriters, who vowed to “never smoke weed with Willie again.” The song ends, however, with them giving in, saying they lay in the fetal position, drooling, because they “broke down and smoked weed with Willie again.” The tune appeared on Keith’s album Shock’n Y’all as one of two special live tracks with Emerick.

“Smoke a Little Smoke”

Eric Church’s “Smoke a Little Smoke” is a blatant tribute to the feeling that comes with smoking weed from the first note, starting out longing to “turn the quiet up, turn the noise down, let this old world spin around.” The song appropriately has a bit of an outlaw sound, unashamedly noting in the bridge the desire to “dig down deep, find my stash, light it up, memory crash.” Church co-wrote “Smoke a Little Smoke,” the third single from his 2010 album Carolina, with Jeff Hyde and Driver Williams. Something about the tune must have resonated with country fans, because it reached No. 16 on the Billboard U.S. Hot Country Songs chart. It’s hard to deny this song is one of the most popular odes to lighting up.

“Get High”

Perhaps one of the more upfront songs on our list, accomplished singer/songwriter Brandy Clark’s “Get High” doesn’t use any euphemisms or hint at what she’s trying to say. The artist tells the story of a woman who works hard to take care of her family and the everyday to-dos, but sometimes gets overwhelmed by life’s problems or bored by the monotony. The way she copes? “Rolls herself a fat one,” Clark sings in the upbeat, quirky tune. The singer continues the story of the woman, carrying on with the day-to-day, interjected with a chorus declaring that “sometimes the only way to get by is to get high.” The woman’s story ends asking God to teach her how to accept the things she can’t change. “But until then,” she adds, “thanks for the Mary Jane.”

“It’s All Going to Pot”

A newer tune for both the iconic artists, this song was released on the duet record Django and Jimmie earlier in 2015, appropriately on April 20. Written by Buddy Cannon, Larry Shell and Jamey Johnson, it was the first single from the collaboration and advocates for the use of marijuana, clearly noted in the music video, which features the artists passing a joint back and forth during the recording process. It almost prophesies that the rest of the world is moving in a direction that will eventually advocate for it as well, even over more well-accepted vices like whiskey. Nelson has his own line of marijuana coming out soon, so this song reflects his personal beliefs. The upbeat, tongue-in-cheek song features a cameo by Johnson and reintroduced the world to the infamous country duo of Nelson and Merle Haggard, not to mention highlight their support of Mary Jane.

Nope totally respect that. If we don’t live up to standards let the world know how bad we are! I wouldn’t want you guys buying bogus seeds from any company let alone ours.

Looking forward to you calling. Remember to ask for Lewis when you do.

Do you have any other strains in stock that are hard to find elsewhere, besides the GDP.

To quote your website:
“You will not find high quality sold cannabis seeds like ours anywhere else in the market. Thanks to our extensive selection of unbelievably high quality marijuana seeds, it’s easy to see why we are head and shoulders above our competitors.”

So I’m curious what’s in your inventory right now that I wouldn’t be able to or would have a hard time finding elsewhere.

What others do you want. We have some Bodhi seeds that someone said were hard to get.

That part of the website was written a long time ago and I will be changing tomorrow. I understand a few people have mentioned it in other threads and I get that the seeds you find on our website are likely to be the same as you find else where, but if that part of our website said “You’re buying the same seeds you can buy from any other seedbank” we wouldn’t be selling ourselves to potential customers very well.

When I am back in the office in the morning i’ll rewrite that part of the website as a few people have mentioned it.

If you have any other questions please feel free to ask

I consider Bad Karma an amigo, and a good guy.

I’ve looked at MidweekSong’s website closely, and see nothing that would indicate anything but a professionally done, consumer friendly site. I’m no web geek, but I figure a user friendly site costs some hefty dinero.

I think MS [Lewis] responses here have been rather classy – essentially ‘put us to the test’ – which would be very easy to do, since you can order ONE bean. For a moment, I considered getting 2 singles of strains I’m very familiar with, but I just don’t need them. and I’m of the opinion Lewis has made a good enough case to get my benefit of the doubt.

@Bad Karma: perhaps what led your suspicions was the post from some bozo on another thread misrepresenting or confusing GDP fems from his regs as purchased fem beans?

I get good vibes. If I needed something, I’d give them a small order.

I HAVE NO IDEA WHY SOME POSTS START FORMATTING LIKE THIS.

I don’t have any specific strains in mind. I was just curious if you had any other hard to find/limited supply seeds besides the GDP stuff. Only strains that come to mind right now that I’d like to get seeds of would be Dutch Passion Green Spirit and Female Seeds C99.

I remember that thread, that guy was adamant that he had feminized GDP which set everyone’s BS radar off but a look at their websites shows only regulars and out of stock now. I’ll give Midweek the benefit of the doubt on that one.

Okay, so I pointed out MWS had GDP seeds (the strain, not the seed company) when nobody else has had them in stock in over a year. Amazingly, today, GDP (the strain) just went out of stock, as @daybreaker discovered for us. Anybody else see that as an amazing coincidence? I sure do.
I’m sorry, but that clearly illustrates my point, something is fishy at MWS.

@Amos Otis, thanks for the kind words, sir. You know I think highly of you, as well.

We haven’t had Original GDP in stock for 3+ weeks but the other 6 Grand Daddy Purples we have in stock now. They haven’t gone out of stock today they have been like that for ages.

I’m getting a little bit confused as to where this is going now, but as always if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Cheers Bad Karma

Sorry I added the Original Grand Daddy Purple part by mistake. We sold out of the Original about 3 weeks ago

Yet you had it listed as available to order within the last 24 hours, now you don’t. I’m not trying to argue, I’m only trying to connect the dots you, and your website, present. So far they do not add up.

This was a guy who made an account and with his first post he made a thread to tell us just how amazing your company is, he claimed to have bought Original GDP from you, feminized no less. Maybe you can clear this guys statements up, it’s why Bad Karma has a hard time believing you’re legit. I also think Bad Karma is a good guy, he’s not trolling you.

By the way, we never got pictures from this guy and the Original GDP showed in stock when he was posting about them.

the original gdp seeds i have are feminized and came in a pack of 10,original breeder pack. it says on the package that is the original gdp crossed with pollen found within that same bud. I originally worried i would end up with a hermaphrodite but i picked it at 9 weeks and not a banana was found on it,, i took cuttings that have root now, in about 10 weeks or sooner ill send that pic, maybe 8 weeks into flowering, the leaves are dark green in veg, and darken when put under 12/12, about 2 weeks into flower the hairs are forming and the buds are hairy but not purple yet, at 4 weeks in you can start seeing the purple streaking through the calyx the leaves end up a dark lime,almost evergreen color wile the bud leaves and calyx are definatly purple sometimes almost black.. ill put my money were my mouth is so to speak as soon as the clones are 7-8 weeks in and again after they are trimmed and dry.. I would hope that after i send the pic itll get me some credit with you guys, im new to this whole thing and only started the board because i was very impressed with midweek song and i have never in my life recieved such great customer service..
