Reefer Madness was an educational film that was shown in schools across the country to show the dangers of smoking marijuana. My dad watched it in health class when he was in 7th grade, so the film continued its legacy decades after it was released in the late 30s. Teens becoming delinquents, eating glass, becoming monsters, it’s all here and perfect fodder for the Rifftrax team to sink their teeth into.
