A young reporter on his first assignment goes undercover to investigate the granddaughter of a wealthy woman killed in a drug-related car crash. The girl, Joan Barrie, stands to inherit her grandmother's fortune, contingent on Joan's good behavior. Linda Clayton is a drug-dealing, double-crossing cousin who plots to ruin Joan's reputation and take all the money. While the newspaper aims to expose the evils of the murderous "marijuana menace," scandal erupts as the town is turned upside-down with all-night drug parties where anything can happen. Like the more famous exploitation classic Reefer Madness (which shares cast member Dorothy Short), this "suspense thriller" vividly reflects the hysterical anti-drug propaganda of its time.
Hilarious exploitation scare film showing good girls turning into fiends after smoking wacky weed. Some versions had the moonlight nude scenes cut. A.K.A. "Assassin of Youth."
