“Marijuana….the burning weed with it’s roots in HELL!”
When it comes to propaganda exploitation films, you would be hard pressed to find one more talked about than the 1936 classic, “Reefer Madness.” Let’s be honest, lest we forget, this film CLEARLY reminds us that marijuana or: The Devil’s Lettuce, Ganga, Assassin of Youth, Bad Seed, Boo Boo Bama, Budda, Crippie, Dank, Dinkie Dow, Endo, Giggle Smoke, Kick Stick, Love Leaf, Mary Jane, Purple Sticky Punch or Sticky Icky as it is sometimes called is pure evil.

We spoke to Chris about this project and here is what he had to say to us about it.
“When I was approached with this subject, I immediately knew that I wanted it to have a vintage, “poisonous, yet strangely appealing” feel to it. The original poster has such a loud “scare you straight” vibe, that I decided on the “seductive danger” route. It was certainly a lot of fun merging the two worlds of temptation and restriction on one print, and it was as challenging as it was rewarding.” —Chris Garofalo
“Remember kids, save your souls, don’t fall into the bottomless pit that is weed.”
