There's no doubt that David Bowie was always on a different plane of existence than the rest of us. For instance, at age 17, he founded The Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Long-Haired Men.

Yes, that was a thing. He discussed their mission in a 1964 TV appearance, in which he was still going by Davey Jones. (He went on to change his name to avoid confusion with the frontman of The Monkees.)

But despite his creation of bizarre stage personas - like Ziggy Stardust, The Thing White Duke and Jareth the Goblin King - Bowie never embraced cannabis culture.

But the culture certainly embraced Bowie. In 1986, marijuana jam band Phish released this track in honor of the glam-rock pioneer. Have a listen to as we remember Bowie:
