I'm feeling sudden, violent, uncontrollable laughter, but please don't call the cops on me ;)


The motion picture you are about to witness may startle you.

It would not have been possible, otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly-increasing numbers.

Marihuana is that drug - a violent narcotic - an unspeakable scourge - The Real Public Enemy Number One!

Its first effect is sudden, violent, uncontrollable laughter; then come dangerous hallucinations - space expands - time slows down, almost stands still... fixed ideas come next, conjuring up monstrous extravagances - followed by emotional disturbances, the total inability to direct thoughts, the loss of all power to resist physical emotions... leading finally to acts of shocking violence, ending often in incurably insanity.

In picturing its soul-destroying effects no attempt was made to equivocate. The scenes and incidents, while fictionized for the purposes of this story, are based upon actual research in the results of Marihuana addiction.

If their stark reality will make you think, will make you aware that something must be done to wipe out this ghastly menace, then the picture will not have failed in its purpose...

Because the dread marihuana may be reaching forth next for your son or your daughter ... or yours ... or YOURS!

Damn. The copy I linked to has no sound, and I so, so, so want to watch this thing! Apparently it was filmed in 1936 and then rediscovered in the 1970s, where it became a cult classic of unintentional hilarity. I wonder if it was ever MST3K'd?
