Legalize It
Peter Tosh Lyrics


Legalize it
Don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah yeah
And I will advertise it

Some call it tamjee
Some call it the weed
Some call it marijuana, daya
Some of them call it ganja
Never mind, got to legalize it
And don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah yeah
And I will advertise it

Singers smoke it
And players of instrument too
Legalize it, yeah yeah
That's the best thing you can do

Doctors smoke it
Nurses smoke it
Judges smoke it
Even lawyer, too

So you've got to legalize it
And it don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah yeah
And I will advertise it

It's good for the flu
Good for asthma
Good for tuberculosis
Even numara thrombosis

Go to legalize it
Don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah yeah
And I will advertise it

Birds eat it
Ants love it
Fowls eat it
Goats love to play with it

So you've got to legalize it
And it don't criticize it
Legalize it, yeah yeah
And I will advertise it

Keep on telling you legalize it

Ninth song by Peter Tosh on the anniversary of his passing in 1987.
Bunny, always the spiritual one, left the Wailers in 1973 after Chris Blackwell, the owner of their label Island Records, stated the Wailers would play " freak clubs" on the upcoming American portion of their tour. Peter left a few months later in November
Peter's first solo album, Legalize It, with its iconic cover of the man becoming one with a field of ganja, made him a world wide sensation. I'm sure the album surprised many with its very laid back vibe---usually Peter was militant and filled with righteous indignation towards oppressors everywhere.
Here is what Wiki has to say-- " Legalize It is an album and song by Peter Tosh. Legalize It was Tosh's debut album as a solo artist after leaving The Wailers. It was recorded at Treasure Isle and Randy's, Kingston, Jamaica in 1975 and released in Jamaica in the same year. ]
Legalize It is one of the three solo albums released in 1976 by Wailers members, along with Bunny Wailer's album Blackheart Man and Bob Marley's Rastaman Vibration.
The song was written in response to his ongoing victimization by the Jamaican police and as a political piece pushing for the legalization of cannabis, particularly for medical use. In 1977, Tosh backed this up by saying 'We are the victims of Rasclot circumstances. Victimization, colonialism, gonna lead to bloodbath'. Tosh also said 'Herb will become like cigarettes', in an NME interview in 1977."
Let's hear three songs from Legalize It. First up is the famous title song.

Al Anderson – guitar
Aston Barrett, Robbie Shakespeare – bass
Carlton "Santa" Davis, Carlton Barrett – drums
Tyrone "Organ D" Downie – keyboards
