Anti-Marijuana Propaganda

Vintage posters from the early Cannabis prohibition, (such as the one depicted here) really do reveal the kind of audience they were targeting, and that would be Christians of the period. Christianity was then as it is now, a major religion and has been... well... since the "birth of Christ". I'm not looking to spark a religious debate, so let me just say that I don't think that it was right for the propaganda artists of early prohibition to use people's own religion as a means to instill fear in them, and not facts.
If I were a Christian, would I want to be caught blowing the "smoke of hell"?

You can find more posters here.
