Weed may still have a stigma against it, but maybe we should consider ourselves lucky based on the 1936 film, “Marihuana: The Devil’s Weed”. The foreword statement, as a foreshadowing of the insanity of the entire film states, “Marihuana gives the user false courage, and destroys conscience, thereby making crime alluring, smart!”
Okay so take note people, weed WILL make you a horrible murderer! Not to spoil the plot, but it will also probably cause you to die. This, amongst other anti-weed propaganda (like Reefer Madness, also made in 1936 – bad year for stoners), are almost laughable today. Yet, they founded a lot of the stigma and illegalization of weed that still holds strong for many today. Watch the movie and see the horrors of marijuana in action.
