This unusual fim is without
precendent in its frankness of the
life of a Marihuana smoker with
his wild parties and weird orgies.
"Marihuana", which is now show-
ing at the Texas theatre, reveals

Only recently an intensive
drive against the use of Marihua-
na cigarets has been put into ef-
fect by both Federal and state
governments, and it is believed
by authorities in charge, that
the devastating traffic of this
horrid drug can be controlled.-
This picture, with its intensive
background of fact founded on
laborous research, strikes square-
ly and definitely at thesinister
results that came from the early
use of Marihuana by unsuspect-
ing or thrill-seeking boys and
