Happy 4/20 From UPROXX Music

It’s April 20, the day when pot smokers around the world rejoice. So, if you’re wondering why that co-worker with the greasy hair randomly took the day off, now you know.

This may come as news to you, but marijuana and music have a long history together. It’s a love affair so deep and tangled the UPROXX Music team couldn’t possibly dream of exploring all of its nooks and crannies, but we tried to do our part.

Below, we’ve written some words about marijuana, and music, and musicians who have gotten in trouble, thanks to marijuana. As a bonus, we’ve created a playlist of songs to listen to today. It’s not a playlist of songs about weed, it’s a playlist of songs that you might appreciate better if you happen to be “celebrating” the holiday. We tried to avoid the obvious choices, so maybe you’ll find something in it you dig and didn’t know existed. You can find it here (and while you’re at it, be sure to follow UPROXX Music on Spotify, there will be many more playlists built for your enjoyment in the future).

Oh, and here’s a bonus video of Wiz Khalifa teaching you how to roll a joint while sitting in a hot tub, because of course.
