(from the Reefer Madness Era)
The following is an index of pamphlets that the museum believes, might be of interest to students of the Reefer Madness dis-information campaign. Please note --as of the time of this website posting, we have not been able to obtain actual copies of any of the below listed materials. We are simply going by the title names, or what others have said about them. In other words, we believe them to have had something to do with the campaign, but please don’t sue us if it turns out that this was not the case.
Note that many of these listings come to us via the OCLC Inter-Library service. Others came to our attention via internet auction sites etc.
ALSO NOTE, this is what is termed a “Working Index” meaning expect misspelled words, bad grammar etc. The way we see it, we could either spend our time creating a beautifully well crafted Index, or we could have something we could work with. Our choice was obvious.

NOTES - My first booklet on the subject of marihuana, published in 1937 under the title, "The Menace of Marihuana," briefly outlined the important phases of the illicit traffic in this dread drug, and the efforts being made to cope with it. I urgently appealed to every Christian agency at that time to awaken to the menace and join the crusade against the "Killer Drug"---"The Assassin of Youth"---"The Weed That Has Its Roots in Hell." Then came my book, "The Moloch of Marihuana." Robert Divine
