Marijuana films have come a long way, baby.
These days, filmmakers like Judd Apatow put lots of positive pot references in movies ― a big change from the early days of Hollywood.

“Reefer Madness” isn’t the only film from that era that used blatant scare tactics to keep people off the grass. Take a look at these budding cannabis cult classics.
