Weed in pop culture

Discussion in 'General' started by cannabolita, Jun 17, 2006.

  1. I smoke weed. Lots and lots of weed. I just got assigned this project in my sociology/cultural anthropology (I go to a hippie college) class to trace references to a cultural phenomenon in pop culture works. I chose weed because it's something I already know a lot about. Because I smoke it. All the time. I need to find a lot of examples of songs and comedy and movies that have weed in them, from 1950-2006. Help?

    I went to http://www.napster.com/napsterlinks/ and searched out all the songs/comedy tracks under “marijuana” “weed” “pot” “ganja” and all the other names I could think of. What I'm really looking for help with is references that aren't easily searched, like, where the song title doesn't have the word “marijuana” or “bong” or anything else obvious in it, so unless I knew of it already I wouldn't be able to search for it. Example: I Wanna Get High by Cypress Hill: http://www.napster.com/player/tracks/10021473

    Also any movies (excepting the obvious, I got the cheech and chong and Harold and kumar and reefer madness and the Friday franchise) you know would be great. Oh, and I already know about this page: http://www.angelfire.com/music2/pot/copyrighted.htm

    Help? Just so ya know, you're not doing my work for me, I have to provide a detailed analysis of all of my references and make, like, really valid points about them that relate to culture at large. Which means I have to be sober for a really long time.  I'll post my finished project, too. Thanks!
