(From “Weird Comics” number 17, 1941.)
Pot rage is the worst.
What?!! Who wrote this?!! Clark Kent would NEVER ask where he could score some dope.
Ahhh, good ol’ 1940s paranoia about the growing pot “epidemic.” To hear tell, back in those days, pot was almost as bad as Communism at corrupting the youth.
@Myro(4): Some people still believe it. Paranoia never goes out of style when you’ve got misinformed and stubborn folk who refuse to educate themselves with reality.
The kids name was Jeff. Hmmm.
WEEDIES! I WANT WEEDIES!
Pot? Is that how you get superpowers? I thought that was either gamma radiation or cocaine.
In the early working scripts, Stan Lee had Rick Jones smoking weed outside Dr. Banner’s lab, and Bruce came out to chase him off and wound up smoking with him, but it was some primo gnarly Nam bud and Banner turned green and got all hopped. But that didn’t fly with the CCA and Stan had to change it to gamma radiation. G-rays are all right, marihuana is bad, mkay?
Jeff seems to be wearing Andy’s pants. What the hell is going ON here?
