Marihuana (1936)

Ah, who doesn't love a good propaganda film - fifty five minutes filled with nonsense and lies. 75 years after this film was made, the lies are still being perpetrated and propagated, but not in such a campy and entertaining manner.  Roadside Productions brings us this 1936 cult classic dubbed as the "most DARING picture ever made!"  Marihuana, "The Weed with Roots in Hell" has no stars, yet has no shortage of melodrama and scandal. Here's the official movie description from imdb - it sums it up better than I can: 

A young girl named Burma attends a beach party with her boyfriend and after she smokes marijuana with a bunch of other girls, she gets pregnant and another girl drowns while skinny dipping in the ocean. Burma and her boyfriend go to work for the pusher in order to make money so they can get married. However, during a drug deal her boyfriend is killed leaving Burma to fend for herself. Burma then becomes a major narcotics pusher in her own right after giving up her baby for adoption.
