When you tilt back with a big fat pipe ready to spark, you can't go wrong with vintage anti-drug propaganda. This hour long shot on video wonder is hosted by then superstars Burt Reynolds and Judd Nelson, both of whom appear here to fulfill community service requirements for drugs; the stoned leading the stoned. Burt and Judd walk through the woods like nature loving Rod Serlings, making snide comments on the lives of the teens in this video. It opens with a young Dermot Mulroney, a couple of years before he saw the giant peyote chicken in Young Guns, smoking crack in a van. Megan Follows, better known as Anne of Green Gables, takes a big bag of sticky green gables, crumbles them up, and proceeds to ruin her young life on cocaine. If you've dreamed of seeing Anne struggle whether to trade sexual favors for hard drugs, this is the video for you. This also features Earl Holliman, the substance abuse icon from Forbidden Planet. He played the flying saucer's cook who convinces Robby the Robot to synthesize several gallons of whiskey, here he is a concerned father or something. The 80's video effects create that retro atmosphere that only gets enhanced by select herbs and spices. Worth digging for. Seven Leaves: High Glow. One of the best, has lots of wonder to make your head spin
