If "Reefer Madness" isn't enough anti-marijuana fun for you, there's this movie...

... about "a young orphan who is trying to pay for her brother's college education," who meets a drug dealer, and runs wild.

"She Shoulda Said No!" is Wikipedia's featured article of the day. I love the poster:

Here's another poster for the same movie (under its alternative titled):

At least her brows are right.

The poster should say "Good girls go to Heaven; Bad girls go everywhere."

Strangers With Candy: Weed

HoodlumDoodlum said...

Fun fact: Strangers with Candy was based on the 1970 anti-drug film The Trip Back. If you watch that and then watch any episode of Strangers it's much funnier--Amy Sedaris is very talented.

I'm not sure it is good PR that stops youth from becoming users if it accuses Marijuana with being the sure fired way to seduce wild girls. It just makes the teetotalers prouder, but I suspect that is the reason it was made.

The sequel about the dangers of giving wild girls Spanish Fly comes out next.

Anonymous said...

I tried marijuana once. It made me want to rape and kill.

Gave my girl Spanish Fly at Thanksgiving and for Christmas she gave me an '8 ball' gear shift knob.

And, again, we see the Laslo signal.

Professor Althouse, I hope this isn't off-topic, but since your jump off was Wikipedia's featured article, I though I'd ask you something I've been meaning to for awhile, namely what your thoughts were on the emergence of these new cyber alternatives to social media like Gab with respect to Twitter and Infogalactic with respect to Wikipedia.

Here, for example, is Infogalactic's parallel version of the She Shoulda Said No! article.


The claim is that Wikipedia is heavily SJW influenced, sometimes to the point of memory-holing disapproved topics, so perhaps a comparison on this film might offer an additional level of revelation on both messenger and message.

Looks like the Men in Her Life did a lot more damage to Lila than weed did. (based on reading of Lila's Wikipedia bio).

Bad Lieutenant said...

There are two graphical elements related to Lila in your post that look right, and they are not her brows.

My problem with weed these days is this: It smells awful. I remember the kind of pleasant burned leaf smell, but now it's so skunky. It sticks on people. You can smell it on people when they cross the street. The other day I was next to a girl in yoga class who had obviously been smoking weed before class and it was so unpleasant.

Static Ping said...

I'm surprised that Mystery Science Theatre or RiffTrax have not gotten a hold of this yet. They had a good time with Reefer Madness.

I expect brief nudity.

I wish I could remember which DVD it was, but the ratings disclaimer had a huge list of awful things to the point that you wonder if the writers did the disclaimer out of amusement.

Cross-eyed bad guy from about 1000 TV shows is in it - Jack Elam.

Here, for example, is Infogalactic's parallel version of the She Shoulda Said No! article.

Looks like they added some carriage-returns and a few very trivial changes, e.g.

Wiki: "She then goes to a "tea party", where she tries the drug for the first time. She is unaffected by the initial experiment, and loses her fear of drugs as she continues to use it willingly.[1][2]"

infogalactic: "She then goes to a "tea party", where she tries the drug for the first time. She is unaffected by the initial experiment, and loses her fear of drugs as she continues to smoke.[1][2]"

I assume you are speaking of her elbows.

Bad Lieutenant said...

gU, actually her elbows are not visible, or at least defined, in either pic. But I like the way you think.

We all know what happens when you assume.

Maybe you should titssume.

BJM said...

I see what you did there, Althouse. It's very amusing.

Laslo Spatula said...

"Jasper, please, No! Don't smoke that reefer!"

"Oh Betsy, it's not a big deal. It just gives me a little high, that's all!"

"A little high? When you are on the dope you turn into an Ass Fiend!"

"An Ass Fiend?"

"Yes: an Ass Fiend! You begin fiending for Ass!"

"Betsy, I'm sure I don't do that…"

"Remember New Year's Eve? You kept trying to sodomize me in the kitchen while people were still eating lobster bisque in the dining room."

"Their stories were boring…"

"That may be the case, but you kept grabbing my buttocks and saying you were a Pirate!"

"A pirate?"

"An ASS Pirate, Jasper: an ASS pirate."

"I'm sorry, but none of this rings a bell."

"That's because you were high on the drugs! You become insatiable for sodomy when you're like that!"

"I bet I'm just joking, Betsy…"

"You tried to put a cucumber up my ass, Jasper! That was NOT proper!"

"I'm sorry, Betsy. Maybe I'll just have a bit of cocaine, instead."

"But Jasper, when you're on cocaine you try to suck men's cocks!"

"I do?"

"Yes, Jasper, you do. You become an insatiable cock-sucker."

"Ah, Betsy. Haven't you ever wanted -- just once -- to let loose?"

"I've smoked the reefer before, Jasper."

"And what happened?"

"I had fierce animal love with a black man."

"My goodness, Betsy! A black man?"

"A black man on REEFER, Jasper: a black man on REEFER!"

"Oh my…"

"He tried to have me again with his magnificent black manhood, but he got distracted and I was able to run away."

"Distracted? What happened?"

"You came into the room high on cocaine and started sucking his cock…"

I am Laslo.

n.n said...

Ah, marijuana, I never knew thee.

"Puff the Hallucinating Dragon", was the better production never produced.

buwaya said...

I knew it.
Laslo bait indeed.

I was watching a video, where the Germans, after invading France, were losing a lot of soldiers who had to be hospitalized with sexual diseases.

Hitler was outraged. He ordered all French prostitutes to reside in brothels with doctors and nurses present, and if prostitutes were caught working outside, they were to be exterminated. Infected soldiers were to be sent to the Russian front.

Hitler seemed to have a practical side.

Some drunks/dopers are fated for hard times. They got plenty troubles.

Millions of others skate by and "maintain" appearances. They are "The Functionals."

I don't know what makes some fall into one and others fall into the other.

I do know that these two groups intermingle, so falling and not falling is pretty commonly a shared experience.

At any rate, it's a beautiful mess.
