About the 1942 Propaganda Films:
We love combing the Web for clues about how something as innocuous as cannabis became public enemy number one, so here’s a gem, Devil’s Harvest, found by Herb’s ChristopherTeague. If you can get beyond tears over how many years of potential healing were wasted on account of such ridiculous propaganda, the absurdity will make you laugh. Enjoy!
The history of propaganda against cannabis is a long and disturbing one. If you haven’t heard of Reefer Madness or the Devil’s Harvest, or been subject to the ridiculous anti-marijuana ads of today, consider yourself lucky. This is one of the classics, and for hilarity’s sake, it is worth the watch. This is what our grandparents grew up with.
The Devil’s Harvest
From the hot-dog stand selling “reefer” across from a school, to the parties that put teens into the vile grips of promiscuity, dancing in their underwear, and murder, the sad twists and poor acting in this scare film of a bygone era into the category of moral propaganda that made America what it is today, unfortunately.
A joint selling hotdog stand owner gets tired of being muscled by organized crime, and the boss decides to spread his enterprise by getting all the youngsters addicted to the Devil’s Harvest. Girls are tricked into being showgirls, then liquored up and sold off to pay drug debts.
The moral of the story
Besides the shame and guilt, Devil’s Harvest was designed to instill in its viewers the idea that everyone has to bow to authority, as the cops manipulate innocent young adults into acting as their undercover agents, because “it is the responsibility of every law-abiding citizen to help bring criminals to justice.”
The film ends up, if you watch with awareness, focusing more on the dangers of organized crime than marijuana. The two are invariably linked in post-alcohol prohibition minds as gangsters like Al Capone made organized crime fame bootlegging booze.
“A vicious racket with its arms around your children!”
“The smoke of Hell!”
Overall, it plays out as a detective story, but The Devil’s Harvest is a thinly held together expose-style film that played to audiences of millions in the 1940’s, helping to fix the minds of prohibitionists onto a new target, marijuana.

What to look for when shopping for Metal Wall Art?
When shopping for Metal Wall Art, there are a few things to look for in premium wall decor. First of all, you want to know if it's made of steel or metal and not the thin, flimsy tin signs that you see on Amazon that are made in China. All of our signs are Made in the USA using heavy guage American steel. Therefore, you can expect a high quality piece of metal art that is made to last. Furthermore, since our metal signs are manufactured in the USA, we source local materials and support the regional economy. Another thing to look out for when shopping for metal wall art is the print quality. All of our signs are powder coated first. After the powder coating is applied the graphics are baked into the powder coating. This powder coating process makes the finsh exremely durable just like any powder coating you would see on cars or motorcyles. The finish is difficult to scratch or chip so your art will last a very long time. Finally, most of our metal wall decor has an optional barn wood style frame with rustic screws. The frames make a big difference and give it an rustic, vintage, or industrial style to the piece which look great with vintage decor.
