Marihuana -Root From Hell - Vintage Propaganda Poster

Marihuana - Weed with Roots in Hell

While marijuana had long been in common use in the United States, it was not considered to be a serious health problem until the 1930s. The Great Depression heightened fear of the effects of marijuana particularly the South and West of the country and it began to be identified as being as dangerous as heroin.

The film Marihuana: Weed with Roots in Hell took advantage of this fear, vividly portraying the depths of degradation the drug might produce. To entice the viewer to see this "daring drug exposé," this poster combines lurid descriptions of the "shame, horror, despair,…misery, weird orgies, unleashed passions" that marihuana can cause with vivid illustrations of the users themselves.
