WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) - City Stage loves to bring back a good thing, and they're doing just that with the show Reefer Madness.

The theater group first performed the production back in 2007. Now seven years later, the show is running again.

Reefer Madness is inspired by a film from 1936 of the same name, and it's a play on old-time propaganda movies.

It's a tongue-in-cheek look at what happens when two clean-cut kids, Jimmy and Mary Lane, fall prey to marijuana. It sends them on a downward spiral to a world filled with evil jazz music, sex and violence.

It's a social commentary wrapped in clever humor and rowdy songs.
