The Pope Smokes Dope

In 1972, New York rocker David Peel and his band The Lower East Side released the album The Pope Smokes Dope. The album, produced by John Lennon and Yoko Ono, was a political protest against cannabis prohibition. It consists of twelve tracks, including the catchy “Everybody’s Smoking Marijuana”. This controversial album title was banned almost everywhere in the world and the album was only released in the United States, Canada, and Japan.
