This film was made to scare youth about the horrors of cannabis… it did not work. Come watch this over the top propaganda film turned hilarious cult classic on 4/20 at Row House Cinema! It won’t scare you straight, but it sure will make you laugh!

The plot? High-school principal Dr. Alfred Carroll relates to an audience of parents that marijuana can have devastating effects on teens. In his story, a drug supplier entices several restless teens, including sister and brother Mary and Jimmy Lane and Mary’s boyfriend, Bill, into frequenting a “reefer” house. Gradually, Bill and Jimmy are drawn into smoking dope, which affects their family lives and leads to a terrible crime.
