Downsided look at small town life

While the story centers around teenagers with a lot of nostalgia attached, it seems to depict small town living, at least that one, as unpleasant. My past experience is the opposite of that. One thing which raised my eyebrows a little is the mention of marijuana in this film about high school kids in 1958. I have never seen a teenage film from the 50s infer that kids used that stuff then, even though did it exist.
