Marijuana is an insidious scourge of the young and stupid: a
gateway drug that needs to be stamped out with blind and
fanatical zealousness by ruthless law enforcement officers.
Few would disagree with that.
The opening shot of a piece of television says much about
what will unfurl as scene one becomes two, three, four, five
and onward as storylines twist, heave and stutter forwards in
a headlong rush to The End.
