Vintage Anti Drug, Marijuana & Reefer Madness Film Library

Price: $19.97     SKU: A9-A10     Qty:

This classic 2 DVD set contains a variety of anti-drug films that were made to show America's youth the dangers of using drugs. In some ways the films are quite explicit in their showing of drug preparation and use. In other ways, they are quite simplistic in their teachings - reflecting the simpler times and more clear cut moral values of the time.

Here are all the films that make up this historical collection:
