Introducing the vintage poster, "Makes Beast of Men and Women," originally titled "The Burning Question" from 1938. This propaganda poster is a prime example of the fear-mongering tactics used during the war on drugs in the 1930s.

The poster features an ominous-looking figure with outstretched hands, surrounded by a swirl of smoke, portraying the idea that marijuana transforms individuals into beasts. The text, "Dope Created Ecstasy Avalanching into Frightful Perversions," further perpetuates the idea that marijuana use leads to immoral behavior.

While this poster is now considered a relic of a bygone era, it serves as a reminder of the deeply ingrained prejudices and misinformation that fueled the war on drugs. By understanding the history of propaganda campaigns like this, we can gain insight into the social and political forces that shaped drug policy in the past and present.

This vintage poster is a must-have for collectors of historical propaganda art and those interested in the history of drug policy. Hang it in your home or office as a conversation starter or as a reminder of the power of propaganda.

In a decaying society, art, if it is truthful, must also reflect decay. And unless it wants to break faith with it's social function, art must show the world as changeable. And help to change it. - Ernst Fischer
