KopSun presents Reefer Madness

Reefer Madness is perhaps America’s best-known propaganda film. Produced by the federal government in 1936, Reefer Madness is the cautionary tale of the evils of marijuana and its inevitable addiction. The film mixes scare tactics, lurid details, and melodrama to tell the story of three drug dealers who introduce marijuana to innocent high schoolers. Wild parties, jazz music, and life shattering events unfold.
