I'm sure many of you are aware of the old anti-drug propaganda films, most importantly Reefer Madness.  It was turned into a musical in 1998, and then a film in 2005.  The modern version is (obviously) satirical as it bring the rationality and fears of 1936 into the 21th century.

One of my many favorite sequences from the film is the opening, where Alan Cumming's character begins his lecture on the dangers of marijuana to parents of high schoolers, only to be interrupted by the pot-crazed, zombie students.
It's hilarious.  But it also at least tickles at the Caribbean roots of the zombie.
