1. “7th Heaven”

Want to see the biggest overreaction to weed of all time? This is it. The entire family is at peak anger, disappointment, fear, and turmoil when it comes out that somebody in the group might be smoking weed. Good old pops even threatens to start drug testing everyone in the family.

From there, the family almost implodes as kids accuse mom of being the hopeless pothead, and siblings turn on each other. There is no redemption here. Weed is depicted as the worst possible thing to happen to a person and a family. This entire scene is basically an extension of how all those 1980s and 1990s PSAs wanted people to react to the supposed dangers of weed.

Each of these scenes is inaccurate and based primarily on negative, unproven, unrealistic, or overly-exaggerated stereotypes and myths that don’t really reflect the reality for most cannabis consumers.
