AStv presents "Reefer Madness"!

Reefer MadnessImage via Wikipedia
Reefer Madness is a 1936 American exploitation film revolving around the tragic events that ensue when high school students are lured by pushers to try "marihuana". The film was directed by Louis Gasnier  and starred a cast composed of mostly unknown bit actors. It was originally financed by a church group and made under the title Tell Your Children.
 The film did not gain an audience until it was rediscovered in the 1970s and gained new life as a piece of unintentional comedy among cannabis smokers. Today, it is in the public domain in the United States and is considered a cult film. It inspired a musical satire, which premiered off-Broadway in 2001, and a Showtime film, Reefer Madness, based on the musical (which sucked).
Without any farther ado, here is "Reefer madness"...
