THIS STORY FIRST APPEARED IN 'DETECTIVE FICTION WEEKLY'
COVER ART BY BILL FLEMING

"...roaming the streets...a menace, a living death, to anyone that crosses his path."

MARIHUANA turns weak King Turner into a deadly weapon, a conscienceless killer with no more human feeling than a hooded cobra or a mad dog. Turner is the novice taken along to a "ranch" to blaze weed; his reactions to the drug were intended to provide comedy for his veteran-smoker companions. Then Turner gets his hands on a knife-and a gun!
