Stop! Don't light the joint until you first watch these three crackpot cannabis classicks from the 1930s, Get the inside Dope on the Drug Craze, and see what actually happens behind the locked doors of a Marijuana Party!
Reefer turns a good girl into a heroin-selling slut in the delirious, over-the-top non-masterpiece MARIHUANA from infamous exploitation film pioneer Dwain Esper (Maniac ), proving once again why women cry for it and men will die for it! Then, a clean-cut reporter tries to infiltrate a teenage gang of delinquent potheads in ASSASIN OF YOUTH, only to plunge into a pit of doobie-induced immorality where on grass-glazed girl tries to kill another with a butcher knife! Plus, as a special bonus, the one and only REEFER MADNESS as you've never seen it before - digitally transferred from a beautiful 35mm print entitled DOPED YOUTH!
Here then are the True Facts on the Weed with Roots in Hell! Marijuana! The Fiend the Poses as a Friend! The Quagmire the Drags Women Down! The Real Public Enemy Number One !
