An outrageously campy musical comedy

A tongue-in-cheek, musical comedy satire, based on the 1936 film of the same name. Reefer Madness tells the cautionary tale of Jimmy Harper and Mary Lane, a wholesome pair of all-American teenager sweethearts, who fall victim to the dangers of the drug menace…MARIJUANA!!!
