The Devil's Harvest: A Warning Against the Dangers of Cannabis
The Propaganda Poster That Sparked a Cultural War
The Devil's Harvest is a vintage propaganda poster from 1942, warning against the dangers of cannabis. It was part of a larger campaign to demonize cannabis and criminalize its use.
A Tool for Critical Thinking
At Rebel Renaissance, we recognize the problematic nature of this propaganda poster. However, we believe that it still has value as a tool for critical thinking and cultural analysis. The Devil's Harvest can be used to examine the history of propaganda, the politics of drug criminalization, and the ways that fear and misinformation are used to manipulate public opinion.
Empowering Alternative PerspectivesBy displaying this poster, you are taking a stand against the forces of oppression and censorship. You are embracing independent thought and artistic expression, and challenging the dominant narratives of our society. You are empowering yourself and others to question the status quo and seek out alternative perspectives.

The Power of Propaganda

It reflects the attitudes and beliefs of a bygone era, and offers a window into the social and political forces that shaped our world. By displaying this poster, you are preserving a piece of cultural heritage and honoring the struggles of those who came before us.
Extra Material: Did You Know?The 1936 propaganda film "Reefer Madness" was another example of the anti-cannabis hysteria that swept the US in the early 20th century.
Cannabis was criminalized in the US in 1937, largely as a result of the propaganda campaign against it.
Today, many activists and advocates are fighting to decriminalize cannabis and end the war on drugs.
