population was so adversely affected by this horrid drug, that it sent good girls bad and stable boys mad.

“Reefer Madness,” from 1936, formally entitled “Tell Your Children” is a cautionary tale about the effects of smoking “Jazz Cigarettes.”

This film proves, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that smoking weed leads to sexual promiscuity, widening of the eyes,
