    Degradation! Crime! Madness! Hysteria surrounded marijuana as a perceived gateway drug from the 1930's to the 1950's and beyond. Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster revealed it in their scarce early Federal Men; Kirby revealed it in early romance comics; Dollman, Yankee Boy, Kerry Drake, even Abbie and Slats preached the evils of a few tokes. Like the anti-drug propaganda film, these stories range from comically misinformed to soberly concerned about the influence of Mary Jane on the youth of America. Eisner and Harvey Award winner Craig Yoe brings us his newest collection of wacky, wild, and culturally relevant comics. Learn More
