"Have you got the munchies?
I know what YOU'VE been doing!
Well, go right ahead and roll another one, then check out these vintage "anti-drug" films from the 1930s and 40s!
Just don't expect Grade 'A' quality here... (Hey! The pizza dude's at the door... man, don't bogart that thing!)
ASSASSIN OF YOUTH-- A jerk reporter turned soda jerk tries to infiltrate a notorious ring of teen stoners. Just stick to making malteds, Jack!
MARIHUANA-- Kids get high at a beach party. One girl drowns and another's "knocked up," (that'll teach 'em!) so she and her squeeze become pushers-- he gets croaked, she gives up the kid and becomes a big time dealer. The moral of this nightmare is: don't go to beach parties.
REEFER MADNESS-- This is the "classic" we used to enjoy at college film festivals back in the early 70s. The audience would crack up with the spastically laughing "head" on screen as the air around us filled with that familiar sweet smell.
WILD WEED-- A chorus girl's brother offs himself when she picks up the Maryjane habit. Huh? Not sure what stinks worse-- this movie or what they're smokin'. Whoa! Jack Elam's in this one-- now I know how his eyes got like that....
MILL CREEK's CULT CLASSICS 20 MOVIE PACK contains jazz like this, plus other weirdness that's sure to give you rushes, dude!
