One of the greatest cult films of all time, Reefer Madness theatrically dramatizes the sensational dangers of the most frightful assassin of our youth, Public Enemy No. 1: marijuana! Originally produced as Tell Your Children, the film serves as a riotous cautionary tale when one decides to tangle with the Demon Weed. Moral corruption, emotional disturbances, unstoppable laughter, murder, even insanity—these are just some of the dire consequences of a group of high school friends lured into the dark world of cannabis! [66 min; drama; English]

"Deserves its reputation as one of the most entertainingly bad movies ever made." — Keith Phipps, The A.V. Club

"One of the most absurdly earnest exercises in paranoia you'll ever have the good fortune to see." — John Du Cane, Time Out
