(Newser) – A recently surfaced home movie of Marilyn Monroe shows the star languorously sucking on what a friend revealed is a marijuana joint as she lounges with pals. Monroe takes a hit before vamping for the camera in a New Jersey apartment sometime in the 50s. The movie was purchased by a filmmaker making a documentary that claims Monroe, who died of a drug overdose, was killed by government agents because she was having an affair with President Kennedy. It was shot by a friend who admitted supplying the pot.
