That deadly demon weed, marijuana, is the subject of this campy exploitation film from the mid-'30s. It is set in a small town and follows the exploits of a group of decadent teen-aged potheads who go one toke over the line and start causing serious trouble. To expose their hedonistic ways, an investigative journalist masquerades as a fountaineer and befriends one particularly troubled young girl and also helps her escape the horrors of her terrifying addiction.
