Even stoners have to grow up sometime.

In the case of Afroman, the Grammy-nominated rapper whose claim to fame is the 2001 classic “Because I Got High,” growing up means rejuvenating his weed anthem.

Afroman has released a new music video for the remix of “Because I Got High” to extol the positive properties of marijuana and advocate for the legalization of weed. He’s working alongside Weedmaps, a dispensary locator app, and the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML). The release was timed to raise awareness for marijuana legalization efforts in advance of the upcoming midterm elections. Voters in Alaska, Oregon and Washington, D.C., will decide whether to legalize recreational weed on Nov. 4. Florida will decide whether to approve medical marijuana.

The original song was a list of unfinished duties and chores, their completion thwarted because Afroman got high. For example: “I was gonna clean my room — until I got high. I was gonna get up and find the broom — but then I got high.”

It took off after Kevin Smith added it to the soundtrack of “Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back.”

Now Smith is coming out with a new “Clerks” sequel — “Jay and Silent Bob” came between “Clerks” and “Clerks II” — and Afroman has updated “Because I Got High,” giving the song a slightly more … productive bent.

This time it opens with “I had problems with glaucoma, but then I got high. Smelled the cannabis aroma, and I got high. Glaucoma’s getting better and I know why — because I got high.”

You get the idea.

“‘Because I Got High’ put me on the map — it’s what got me a record deal, a Grammy nomination and made me a household name,” Afroman told Rolling Stone. “Getting high — and rapping about it — got me to where I am today and I’ll be forever grateful for that. With the current political battle with states trying to legalize weed, I thought it was a good time to educate — or set the record straight — about marijuana’s benefits, which is why I wanted to remake the song.”

Here’s the original video, full of Jay and Silent Bob goodness, if you want to compare the two:
