HOW DRUG CULTURE IN CINEMA HAS CHANGED OVER THE YEARS

This short video examines how drugs have evolved as a cinematic trope, it's interesting to see how the accepted opinion changes over time. For instance, cocaine was a widespread stimulant in the west during the 1910s, then was viewed as a fuel for crime lords in the 1980s; public hysteria towards weed was encapsulated in Reefer Madness, but became a counterculture symbol in the 1960s. Shouts to Court of Source for the vid!
