Quotes

The Narrator: Because of the educational nature of this film, we have omitted the Pusher's perverted sexual advances on the inebriated and susceptible Johnny. A dope fiend is also a sex fiend.

Very funny, worth a watch.
12 August 2006 | by (Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

A very good spoof on early marijuana films like the infamous Reefer Madness, Weed shows how many misconceptions about drugs came about through an overzealous media and no movement to change false perceptions because, hey, isn't it just easier for the government to just let us believe lies? Weed is also very funny with quotes like, "This is Johnny. Three days ago Johnny was a high school honors student, captain of the basketball team, a teen leader. Now, change. Johnny isn't a leader anymore." It's a tragic story about Johnny becoming addicted to marijuana one day. Yup, addicted in one day. I would buy this movie just to watch it in Health class.
