"Let's Go Get Stoned" is a song originally recorded by The Coasters in May 1965 and by Ronnie Milsap in 1965.[1] It was written by Nickolas Ashford, Valerie Simpson, and Josephine Armstead.

It was a 1966 #1 R&B hit for American recording artist Ray Charles.[2] The single was released shortly after Charles was released from rehab after a 16-year heroin addiction. Charles heard a 1965 recording of the song by future country music legend Ronnie Milsap who was an unknown R&B artist at the time on Scepter Records. According to Milsap, Charles liked his version of the song so much that he decided to record it himself. It is notable for being one of Ashford & Simpson's first successful compositions together; the duo also penned Charles' "I Don't Need No Doctor".[3] An unusual feature of the recording is that it closes with the sound of the "NBC chimes".
