This movie was meant as a warning to those using or thinking about using marijuana. It portrays how unscrupulous types seduce young folks into thinking that reefer, Mary Jane, weed, joints, and doobies are harmless fun.

Starring Dorothy Short, Kenneth Craig, and Lillian Miles.

Also known as: Tell Your Children

  • Directed by Louis J. Gasnier.
  • Original story written by Lawrence Meade.
  • Screenplay written by Arthur Hoerl.

The US Copyright Office’s Catalog of Copyright Entries for Motion Pictures, 1912-1939, shows no formal copyright entry for this movie under Reefer Madness or its alternate titles.

I believe that Reefer Madness is in the public domain due to listing it as so with a creative commons attribute. Additionally, describes how the movie was not properly protected when it was produced. Apparently, the people behind the movie used an improper copyright notice which invalided its protection.
