The Demon Weed. It's at the center of Reefer Madness, a musical satire based on the 1936 anti-weed propaganda flick that found a second life as a comedy, in which Mary Lane (played by Stephanie Layne, pictured) gets hooked up by Ralph (Matthew Benjamin Horowitz, also pictured) and goes kinda nuts. Wholesome teenager Jimmy Harper (played by Kevin Clark) has his own fall from grace, and it's all set to lyrics by Kevin Murphy and music by Dan Studney. Truly maddening, indeed.
