AGFA and Something Weird scoured the Something Weird vaults to rescue and restore 16mm gems from a neglected genre: the classroom drug scare film. From doped-up drag-racers to spiders on speed, the best of the bunch are collected and presented in DRUG STORIES!
What's the best way to prevent young people from turning on, tuning in, and dropping out? Government entities of the '60s and '70s seemed to believe that hardline DRAGNET-style narration, groovy medical animation, and dramatic reenactments of bad trips would do the job. Of course, when the old tricks didn't work, filmmakers had to get more creative. Maybe a small child could better relate the cold, hard facts about dope? And maybe the dangers of hallucinogens could be explained by a sentient tab of LSD?
