Reefer Madness (1936)

The tale revolves around Mae and Jack, accomplices in the distribution of marijuana, who manage to entice the local high school kids to stop by Mae’s apartment to smoke reefer. The lives of all who are involved with this menace are inevitably shattered. One man becomes so addicted to the killer weed that the guilt over framing a teen for murder causes a judge to order him to be committed for life to a mental hospital! Dr. Carroll closes by advising us to not incur the same tragedy.

  1. I like your edit, although I have to admit that I do not like this movie much.
    Anyway, kudos (a word I learnt in this contest)!!
    I like the structure of this coloured version (and its coloured smokes).
