Marijuana is a 34-minute 1968 anti-drug documentary film by Max Miller and distributed by Avanti Films.[1] It is narrated by Sonny Bono. It was described as "the first major film effort to center upon the use and possible risks of marijuana",[2] in which "arguments for and against its use are presented and the accumulation of arguments against is allowed to speak for itself".[3] Music for the documentary was composed by The Byrds' Gene Clark, a "bizarre" choice in his musical career, resulting in "meandering blues and pseudo-psychedelic instrumental jams".[4]
