Description by

These rare "social guidance" films tackle the epidemic of drug use running rampant in post-war high schools and college campuses. The illegal drug parties depicted always include pretty young girls, and the wild goings on often appear much more attractive than the staid conformity teens are implored to adhere to.

KEEP OFF THE GRASS: While cleaning his room, mother is horrified to discover Tommy's marijuana stash. Dad has a talk with the boy to educate him about the risks of drug use. Unjustified hilarity, loss of ambition and irresponsibility are but a few of the grave dangers Tommy faces. "Blow a joint, blow your future!" warns dad. (1970)

THE TERRIBLE TRUTH: The alarming rise of drug use among teens is vividly brought to life. The true story of a pretty teenager's nightmare of depravity brought on by her experiments with illegal substances is recounted in an effort to warn other innocent young girls. (1951)

SEDUCTION OF THE INNOCENT: A popular teenager takes her first toke of a marijuana cigarette - her first "trip" explains the narrator. Within weeks, she is selling her body on the street to pay for her out-of-control heroin habit. (1961)

DRUG ABUSE: THE CHEMICAL TOMB: A doctor takes us on a tour of the popular recreational drugs of the 60s. Unfortunately, the exciting depictions of the highs likely fueled more reaction among teens than his dull warnings of dire consequences. (1969)
