Beware of that nasty 'wacky weed'.
19 February 2002 | by (Muskogee OK) – See all my reviews

Intended to show the results of smoking marijuana, this movie is interesting in the fact it is fun to watch the 'over acting' or lack thereof. A young punk(Scott Marlowe)fresh from reform school enrolls into a Kansas City high school with the intent to push marijuana. It is comical watching the results of just the introduction to the 'special smoke'. Watching this today is a hoot with or without the munchies! Also in the cast are:Richard Bakalyan, Dickie Jones and Gigi Perreau.
