Distributed by Columbia Records, Legalize It was a sensational call for global legalisation of ganja. It is regarded as one of the great protest albums and the fiery Tosh's signature work.

In a May 2003 interview with the Jamaica Observer, Lee Jaffe, an American who was instrumental in signing Tosh to Columbia, said the singer/songwriter was eager to make an impact with his first album.
