Since the beginning of movie making, film makers have tried to mirror society. The counterculture has always been a favorite sticky issue, including marijuana use. As early as the 1920's, the loco weed has made many cameo appearances and a few starring roles. From it's early days of scare tactics in the now famous cult favorite Reefer Madness, to the late 70's marijuana heroes, Cheech and Chong in Up In Smoke, grass has come full circle. Although it is said that millions light up every day, Tinsletown has had a difficult time dealing with the use of marijuana on the silver screen. Nowadays, the majority of films that feature marijuana are somewhat neutral in their portrayal of this illicit activity and by now, many major actors and actresses have turned on! In this book, you will find over 500 movies from the past 60 years that feature references to marijuana. Whether it's a full blown pot film like, Half Baked or Dazed and Confused to a quick shot of a bong on a table or a joint in a drawer, you'll find all of marijuana's movie roles in this, The Complete Guide to the Hollywood High. Included is an alphabetical listing of Stars Who Smoke on screen and a complete listing of all the films reviewed. Also scattered throughout the listings are memorable lines that we call FAMOUS QUOTES.
