It would not have been possible otherwise, to sufficiently emphasize the frightful toll of the new drug menace which is destroying the youth of America in alarmingly increasing numbers.
Marihuana is that drug — a violent narcotic — an unspeakable scourge — The Real Public Enemy Number One !
Its first effect is sudden violent, uncontrollable laughter, then come dangerous hallucinations — space expands — time slows down, almost stands still….
fixed ideas come next, conjuring up monstrous extravagances — followed by emotional disturbances, the total inability to direct thoughts, the loss of all power to resist physical emotions leading finally to acts of shocking violence … ending often in incurable insanity.
In picturing its soul- destroying effects no attempt was made to equivocate. These claims are based upon actual research into the results of Marihuana addiction.
If their stark reality will make you think, will make you aware that something must be done to wipe out this ghastly menace, then the picture will not have failed in its purpose.
Because the dread Marihuana may be reaching forth next for your son or daughter …or yours … or YOURS! You have Reefer Madness.
