Propaganda film that relates the story, as told by high school principal Dr. Carroll to parents at a PTA meeting, of the scourge of marijuana. The tale revolves around Mae and Jack, accomplices in the distribution of marijuana, who manage to entice the local high school kids to stop by Mae's apartment to smoke reefer. The lives of all who are involved with this menace are inevitably shattered. One man becomes so addicted to the killer weed that the guilt over framing a teen for murder causes a judge to order him to be committed for life to a mental hospital! Dr. Carroll closes by advising us to not incur the same tragedy.

"Two squeaky clean teens try marijuana for the first time, which catapults them through a world of promiscuity, atheism, & murder. Originally funded by a Church group, and meant as a morality tale for parents to use against cannabis use, when the film was rediscovered in the 70's, it became unintentional comedy and cult hit"

"Vihdoin tuli tääkin ns. camp-klassikko katottuu, ja täytyy sanoo että en kyllä nää tässä paljoo aineksia tasaisesti huutonaurua aiheuttavaksi katselukokemukseksi, edes oikenlaisella porukalla katsottuna. Joo, kannabisuhkakuvia on liioiteltu, varsinkin kun se on leffan oman kuvauksen mukaan nostettu huumeista pahimmaksi heroiinin ja muiden yli, mutta ei tässä sitten lopulta paljon muuta olekaan kuin tuo yksi vitsi moneen kertaan eri tilanteissa. Enimmäkseen tää siis on vaan tylsä j"

"Oikein paikallaan oleva valistuselokuva, erityisesti nyky-yhteiskunnassa, jonka kokoajan suvaitsevampi suhtautuminen myrkyistä pahimpaan, marihuanaan, pitäisi olla jokaisen aivonsa toistaiseksi sen savuilta ehjänä säilyttäneen huolenaihe. Kyllähän sitä tulee tietää, että hyvänkin elämän omaava ihminen ajautuu ganjaa kerran tupruteltuaan huumekoukkuun, kruisii vanhusten päältä autolla, ampuu naisia, ajaa porukkaa pomppaamaan ikkunasta ja luo vaikka mitä kaikkea muuta mielipahaa"

"A 1930s propaganda film that relates the story, as told by the high school principal to parents at a PTA meeting, of the scourge of marijuana. The tale revolves around Mae and Jack, accomplices in the distribution of marijuana, who manage to entice the local high school kids to stop by Mae's apartment to smoke reefer. Of course, the students find their lives falling completely apart as mayhem, premarital sex and murder occur."

"4.11.2009, DVD Odotusten mukaisesti täyttä paskaa alusta loppuun, joskin kaikessa ääliömäisyydessään erittäin viihdyttävää sellaista, ja siitä noinkin korkeat pisteet. Jo ensimmäisen kymmenen minuutin aikana kerrotaan muun muassa marihuanan olevan herskaa, kokaa ja muita vastaavia pahempaa kamaa, ja seuraavan tunnin aikana me kuullaan mm. esimerkkitapaus pojasta, joka pilvessä teurasti kirveellään koko perheensä plus läjä muita täysin älyvapaita väitteitä ja esityksiä.
