The Marihuana Story (Spanish: Marihuana) is a 1950 Argentine film directed by León Klimovsky. It was entered into the 1951 Cannes Film Festival.[1]



The relative financial success of the American exploitation film She Shoulda Said 'No'! (1949), a morality tale involving the use of marijuana, prompted producers in 1951 to import The Marihuana Story from Argentina.[2]
