When asked what inspired his Weedsday selections, Seth shared:

“I’ve been a stoner since the jump, smoked my first joint at the age of 13 and never looked back. I’m of the culture, and the music has always been a very important thing to me as I’ve smoked and celebrated this culture that has now come to the forefront of society. Even though I did 21 years in prison for weed and psychedelics, I feel justified now in what I was promoting. I was a trailblazer in this game….Just a little before my time and I suffered for it, but seeing where we are at now, it was all worth it. Here’s my top five official stoner songs. They go back a bit, but this is the history that should be recognized. It’s about the culture, not the industry that the Chad’s have co-opted.”
