The historical records state that the song "Rocky Mountain High" was primarily inspired by John Denver's move to Aspen Colorado. The song has been adopted as one Colorado's state songs and is considered a major piece of 1970s pop culture. 

Soon after release the song became a hot button for discussion when the FCC, by legal ruling, censored music deemed to promote drug abuse. The song was temporarily banned until John came forward and explained that the "high" was not a drug reference but rather a description of the sense of place he found in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. In 1985 he testified before Congress stating his case.

We still think he was talking about weed.

Hand screened in Denver.
