Late Show: Reefer Madness

SEE youthful marijuana victims — what actually happens!

The infamous 1936 exploitation film revolving around the tragic events that ensue when innocent high school students are lured by a trio of pushers to try reefer cigarettes — wild parties, a hit and run accident, manslaughter, suicide, rape, and descent into madness all ensue!

It was originally financed by a church group and made under the title Tell Your Children. Some contend that the exaggerated fear-mongering about drugs was just a subterfuge that allowed the filmmakers to circumvent the Hays Code and show “racier” material than the Code would otherwise permit.
