Hey potheads, and welcome back to Classics of Crap! This week's awesomely bad movie is the infamous 1936 anti-pot propaganda film, Reefer Madness, aka. Tell Your Children. Possibly the most well known of all the "educational" films of the 30's, Reefer Madness depicts several men and women trying pot for the first time. Like most people's first puff of the green stuff, nothing happens. Oh wait, I'm sorry. No, what I meant to say was that the tiniest bit of Mary Jane makes these people go absolute batshit crazy. Killing, molesting, hooking, more killing, gambling, even more killing and finally throwing themselves out of buildings. Cause, you know, pot makes you do that. Reefer Madness has gotten a fervent cult following over the years for its completely ludicrous depiction of smoking pot. In fact, in 2005 they actually made a musical spoof of it starring Kristen Bell and Neve Campbell. It's good, but no where near as entertaining as the real thing. With one watch, you'll be hopelessly addicted!
