"Anti-Pot Ads. It mightn't kill you, but it could turn you into a dickhead",

There, fixed it.

The people making these ads are doing it to get money from the government.

Nice scam they have going there.

I hate how condescending the Above the Influence ads are here in the US. They make me want to toke up and I hate bong smoking hippies like Eric Cartman.

Does ANYONE take these ads seriously??? I hit "mute" when they come on. Pure propaganda.

Actually I though that most dickheads were caused from NOT smoking pot.

I think the neck ties that government workers wear cuts the blood off to their brains and makes 'em do stupid crap like this.

Those piss me off the most. The point of the ad is that if you smoke pot you will be too lazy to walk your dog. WTF!!! How can you call someone lazy with a commercial made out of construction paper and crayons?

QFT. The anti-drug education crowd sees nothing wrong with spreading mis-information to further their cause. They don't seem to realize that 90% of kids will find out their 'education' was a load of crap.

CARL SAGAN SMOKED TEH POTS! I bet you think of yourself like one of these people when you toke up -- but guess what, you're a farking loser. Ha! Ha!

The_Religious_Left They don't seem to realize that 90% of kids will find out their 'education' was a load of crap.

And that, children, is where meth freaks and heroin addicts come from.

Tell people that everything is bad and when they find out you're lying they'll throw away any good advice you gave with the bad, because it all came from the same tainted source.

Sagan was a fraking genius despite smoking teh pots, not because of it.

This is a better approach. Less histrionic than the "OMFG, Drugs will KILL YOU!" approach. Good jerb.

Does it give you a woody to call people you know nothing about a "loser"?

The point is not that pot makes you smart, or that only smart people smoke pot. The point is that smoking pot does not necessarily make one a loser either.

Total lack of reading comprehension combined with insulting people on the internet is probably a little bit of a better indicator of who is and isn't a loser. Sorry dude.

I've seen the effects of pot first hand. It's not at all pretty. Those who smoke or consume any substance to get high are true losers. They lack the self esteem to maintain their very existence.

Not a troll, just stating facts.

tothekor Those who smoke or consume any substance to get high are true losers

I assume you never drink alcohol either?
And are happy that you've just called the majority of the western world "losers"?

If not then you're a moron.
If so, then welcome to the world of elitism. You'll find the inhabitants refreshingly superior, though small in number. And yes, you may now enjoy the smell of your own farts.

where are the anti-alcohol ads? alcohol's much worse than pot. just ask your liver.

my favorite commercials were always the ones for meth. i still remember that song:

"i don't eat, and i don't sleep, but i've got the cleanest house on the street! oh, meth, o-o-oh, meth!"

with my pudginess and messy house, it very much made it more appealing than the reality of meth. just not enough for me to actually try it. knowing people on meth -- there's your anti-meth campaign right there.

/never done meth
//never will

I believe I can fix this still further:

New ads target pot-smoking teens. "Pot. It might not kill you, but it could turn you: into a dickhead."
 
2007-04-10 07:54:49 AM
log_jammin I never said it "made" them a loser

Which is why I didn't reply to your post! I don't disagree that some pot smokers are losers. I just resent the implication (from other people) that all or even most are. I know quite a few and they're all quite successful professionals.

The statement was that most people that smoke part are really big losers. Citing FOUR successful people that smoke pot does not discredit that statement. This is what pot smokers do in every thread. Go on and on about Carl Sagan while sweeping the majority of drug abusing losers underneath the carpet. You are not Carl Sagan, you are not an exception, you are the rule. You smoke pot and play video games. I find this funny.

I apologize if my teasing was a little too rough for you.

Sorry dude.

What's funny about smoking weed and playing games?
I also enjoy outdoor sports, am a keen scuba diver, have lots of friends and an active social life and pull down a decent salary from one of the worlds biggest multinationals.

Your teasing is short sighted and plain wrong. I don't give a fark about Sagan, I have a problem with idiots shouting "loser" at people without basis.

Idiot.
