Probably discussed on here before but...
 

Was El Indio on the weed and was it legal back then?

Weed. 

And do you rally think that if weed was illegal that would deter El Indio, a maniacal killer, robber, rapist from using it ???

I think you could smoke whatever you wanted to back then.

I think I read it somewhere that it was the first major film that depicted drug taking.

Apart from The Man with the Golden Arm and probably several more.

It would be interesting to know what was available back then apart from tobacco. The point is that Indio was a complete madman but no idiot. Didn't need junk: he was already gone.

And he wouldn't have had a smoke in jail so he was dying for a fag.
