propaganda-noun- information that is spread for the purpose of promoting some cause
Check out this film "Reefer Madness", it was a film created back in 1936. It was a film that talks about marijuana use, and the events that follow when high school students are lured into the tempataion of smoking marijuana. It talks about things that may happen, but are debated as highly unrealistic actions such as manslaughter, suicide, and rape. The film was directed by Louis Gasnier and had a cast of nobodies! The film was used back in the day for parents as a morality tale to teach them about the dangers of smoking marijuana. A perfect example of some propaganda for ya! If you wanna watch the film just click the pic below!
