THE DETAILS:

The Alamo Drafthouse's virtual cinema series celebrates 4/20 by making two drug-themed films available online. The classic 1936 propaganda film Reefer Madness is a histrionic laugher that shows how one toke can ruin lives. Drug Stories is a collection of classroom scare films, designed to keep kids away from drugs through bizarre re-enactments and anti-drug messaging. The film rental includes vintage commercials.
