1968 SPECIAL REPORT: "POT-Pourrie...MANY VIEWS OF MARIJUANA"
This program examines different opinions of marijuana, beginning with a historical perspective on marijuana in "World of the Weed", followed by a look at the current role of marijuana in "The Current Scene", and then a research report on scientific experimentation with THC, "Research Report: THC, The Chemistry of Marijuana". The program examines just who uses marijuana and looks at the scientific studies being conducted on marijuana. Throughout the program, comedian Stan Freberg and his repertory company appear, satirizing so-called experts on marijuana.
