Reefer Madness
(1936)
Reviewed by Jason Catanese
Rating: 10 Beans

his is one hilarious movie. If anything, this anti-marijuana film would make most people I know WANT to try it, instead of the implied message. I couldn't believe my eyes.

The plot concerns Bill and Mary, a very, very, very, very, very clean cut, square couple who have some of the most inane conversations I've ever heard. They meet up with another couple, Jack and Mae. Jack and Mae are "potheads." They deal to all the little kids in the town, and what a dealer he is. He gives this shit away for free. Show me to Jack!

A principal gives a lecture on the dangers, comparing it to coke and heroin, and tells about a kid who slaughtered his entire family with an ax under the influence of the devil's dandruff.

The scenes of when some dude Ralph first "Chong-A-Dongs" a joint, or "marihuana cigarette", resembles a burned out crack slut getting her fix behind a 7-11 dumpster, convulsing and tripping out after a quarter of a hit. One kid gets a little nuts(I think he may of taken 2 hits) and runs over a pedestrian with his car, which is one of the funniest scenes in history.

But it's just begun. Did you guys know that one "marihuana cigarette" could lead to insanity, depression, even murder? It's true, this is the worst possible thing you can ingest into your body. I think a McDonald's cheesburger does more harm, but that's me. Don't do drugs, kids.

One great scene involves that dude Ralph and Mae smoking a few hundred thousand billion joints, spliffs, bobs, whatever your preference, while Mae does this incredible piano solo. All the time, Ralph is shouting "Faster! Faster!" As high as Mae is, she still manages to play a perfect concerto piece, free of mistakes.

Soon after, Ralph and Jack get into a fight, and under the influence of wacky tobaccy, Ralph shoots Jack in the back. At the end, he's convicted of murder and goes completely insane, and Mae loses her mind and jumps out a window. This was before LSD was big, so it's even more interesting. To consider jumping from a window, I'd personally need about a half-pound of smoke, 521 hits of acid, 3 grams of coke, and a Coors Party Ball refilled with Robotussin DM. Mae just needs a quarter joint.

They got tapes like this for cocaine and LSD, too. I can't wait to pick those up. But I've heard of another one called "Marihuana", made around the same time. Oh yes, It's time to pick up "Marihauna."

Don't watch this sober, either.
