A video released by Maroon 5 last week for their latest single, “Nobody’s Love,” sees the band making a call for the decriminalization of marijuana.
The video, reportedly shot in Los Angeles on an iPhone, was directed by David Dobkin. It sees singer Adam Levine, sporting a full beard and a shaved head, singing, “You’re the only hand in my back pocket / If you ever left I go psychotic / Heaven hear me cryin cryin oh oh / Baby you’re the key to my heart locket / You can make a grown man cry / If you ever said goodbye.”
In the chorus, he chips in, “Never gonna need nobody’s love, but yours,” confirming his love, as he rolls and smokes joints.
At the end of the video, a note attributed to the ACLU reads: “It’s time to end the War on Marijuana. The aggressive enforcement of marijuana possession laws needlessly ensnares hundreds of thousands of people into the criminal justice system and wastes billions of taxpayers’ dollars. What’s more, it is carried out with staggering racial bias. Despite being a priority for police departments, the War on Marijuana has failed to reduce marijuana use and availability and diverted resources that could be better invested in our communities.”
“Nobody’s Love” is the band’s first song this year. Last fall, they had released “Memories.”
