Barbiturates: Case Study (film #5 on The Educational Archives, Volume One: Sex & Drugs DVD (Fantoma, 2001)). [Category: Educational]

A former pothead describes how he got hooked on "reds" and "yellows" when pot just didn't do it for him anymore. Since this is a 60s film, the description of the drugs' effects is quite psychedelic, involving the same amoeba-like camera effects seen in practically all anti-drug films of the period. Again, this seems to be an excerpt rather than an entire film. Groove along to catchy, poppy music in this film about downers.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
