Fans of Thai songs-for-life will have fond memories of the song “Ganja” (“Marijuana”), which first featured on Carabao’s 1982 album “Pae Khai Khuad”. The lyrics of that timeless song condemned the fact that ganja was illegal but now, with marijuana legalised for medical purposes.

Yuenyong “Ad” Ophakul, founder of the legendary songs-for-life band, is telling everyone that ganja is amazing in his new song, “Mahasajan Ganja”.

Listen to the number at Spotify, Apple Music, Joox, TrueID Music and Deezer, or download it from the iTunes Store by Warner Music.
