Summary
This Prelinger Archives film is a dark vision of drug use and its effect on American youth in the 1960s. Using dramatizations, it tells the story of a teenage boy (played by Kevin Tighe, later a co-star on the TV series Emergency) who begins using narcotics "just for kicks" and becomes addicted, to the point of dropping out of school and being arrested and jailed. This first part depicts the hapless teen's moral downfall as peer pressure, sexual deprivation, and alcohol draw him into heavy marijuana use.
