"Let's Go Get Stoned" is an R&B song originally recorded by The Coasters in May 1965. It was written by Ashford & Simpson and Josephine Armstead.

It was a 1966 number-one R&B hit for music legend Ray Charles. The single was released shortly after Charles was released from rehab after a sixteen-year heroin addiction. 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" before they signed with Motown Records working primarily on duets for Marvin Gaye & Tammi Terrell.
