Summary
In this first film to inform the public of the dangers of habitual marijuana use, Mae and Jack, accomplices in the distribution of marijuana, manage to entice local high school kids to stop by Mae's apartment to smoke reefer, where stoned ne'er-do-wells laugh fiendishly, dance, and play the piano. Jack invites the clean-cut couple Bill and Mary up to his den of sin. After one joint, Bill is hooked, and his life begins to plummet down the tubes. When Mary smokes, she begins giggling uncontrollably while being aggressively fondled by the bizarre addict Ralph. Bill tangles with Ralph, prompting a string of calamitous occurrences, including several deaths, courtroom sentences, and mental institutions, all because of the devil weed
