Pre-Code 50's Dope Comic

Collecting dope related ephemera includes more than just vintage drug exploitation paperbacks. It extends into other genres such as magazines, hardcover books, and comics such as the one pictured above. This is an example of how the "dope menace" was portrayed in the comics, before the dreadful Code came along to Disney up everything. Notice the passed out drug addicts depicted in the background, and the woman shrieking in horror. I'm sure her horror stems from being caught by the fuzz.
