The Beatles, Bob Dylan And Marijuana
This the day August 28, 1964 The Beatles smoked marijuana for the first time when it was offered to them by of all people Bob Dylan. The event happened at hotel in New York City. Bob Dylan couldn’t believe The Beatles had never smoked cannabis. Bob said at the time “But what about your song?” The one about getting high. You know the one with the line “when I touch you I get high, I get high…”
John then tells Bob that he got the lyrics wrong “The words are, I can’t hide, I can’t hide…” Even Bob Dylan can mistake a lyric.
