Brought to you by the cult of "just say no".  Fails equally well with sex education.

The biggest druggies in my home town were 2 years behind me - the first to get DARE "education."

When you tell kids pot will kill them eventually, coke will kill them instantly, they tend to over-correct when they find out that's a lie.

Also, they will do meth because they know it's pretty safe, unlike cocaine. They know this because they know a lot of people that's done meth, and they all haven't died like cocaine. True fuking story.

My hometown is a post-industrial small town where all the jobs where sent to Mexico (l'm being literal, they were sent to Mexico, not China). If you don't work at the state pen, the car dealership, teach, or come from a family with money, you're likely on some welfare.

New jobs are coming back building wind-turbines though.

You don't need PSA's anymore.  Just show them a few episodes of Intervention.  Good lord that show is depressing.

On-Off: 50 posts in and no mention of "Requiem for a dream"?
I know, technically, it wasn't PSA.
It didn't have any excuses.


I think "don't do needle drugs, don't suck cock for drugs" and "Rx abuse is drug abuse" are two fine points to make.

The one I thought was funny was where these two guys in their late 20's-early 30's are smoking weed in the basement. One of them says something like, "Man, these anti-drug commercials are such B.S. I mean, look at me. I've been smoking pot for 15 years, and I never went to jail, I never hurt anyone, etc...damm my mom's home quick open a window, Then a woman's voice comes from upstairs. "did you even look for a job today?" And the guy replies, "Um...no Maw um, I'll look for one tomorrow..."

"Just say no" cures drug addiction the way that "Have a nice day" cures chronic depression.

ReapTheChaos: Who cares if they were stupid, if they kept a few kids from trying drugs then they were worth it.


They got a lot more kids to overdose on heroin because they oversold the evils of lesser drugs so badly.  Once the kid smokes a little pot and it doesn't have the effect that the commercials warn about, they think the harder stuff might not be so bad either.

Ive never wanted a needle in my arm as badly as I do right now.

All drug education ever did for me was inform me what drugs would be fun to take and what drugs would turn me into a hobo.

you wanna scare kids straight the real way all ya gotta do is this.
go to vancouver. Hang out at the corner of main and hastings st. Go for a walk down an alley if you feel bold.

why with all the good information about different drugs thats out there parents and the establishment feel the need to lie is beyond me.

sex ed and drug ed. I would prefer to teach my boy about personally. I dont trust educators not to fark it up as much as humanly possible

highwayrun: I hate to tell you, but you've confused smelling salts (usually ammonia-based) with amyl nitrate, or "poppers".


I was 8 to 10 years old, I also confused aspirin with Tylenol.

And I want to repeat this because it is true.

Lying to kids, to protect them, will bite you in the ares.

Are you trying to tell me that kid didn't really learn it from watching his dad?

My childhood is now ruined.
