A story I heard from an unreliable friend:

In DARE, the cop passed around a little baggie with two joints to show what they looked like. He told the class that he better get them back or he's going to search everyone.

When the cop got the bag back, it had three joints.

Dragonflew: That Punky Brewster one was just weird. It got surreal at the end.

Does anyone remember that commercial from the late 70s or early 80s with the kid who brings his broken car to his drunk father and asks him to fix it, the father says "suuure, buddy!" and slams the parts together a couple of times, gets pissed off, and says "go to bed. NOW!!!"?


That wasnt a commercial...that actually happened to you.

I remember the PSAs in arcade machines that would say WINNERS DON'T USE DRUGS! Right before I slaughtered goblins with my sword. Now I want to play Golden Axe.

The turtles changed their stance on drugs to pro-legalization once they realized just how much of the pizza industry's business came from people who were high.

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

My childhood is now ruined.

I learned everything I needed to know about drugs from cartoons:  "The secret compartment of my ring I fill / With an Underdog super energy pill."

Clicked for the Cartoon All-Stars, wasn't disappointed. We owned this VHS and it was part of my regular viewing as a kid. Michael sure looked like he was dabbling with more than pot by the look of his complexion toward the end, and the fact that my mom was growing copious amounts of ganja in our basement at the time is neither here nor there.

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..."

Michelangelo had the right idea.
What do you do when a drug dealer is giving you free pot?

During elementary school, we got a healthy dose of DARE during the Reagan years.  McGuff, comic books filled with trenchcoat-wearing dealers making kids take needle drugs, and all that good stuff.  I remember on the footnote of all the drug worksheets they printed "America:  Drug free by 2000!".  What a farking joke.

Snapper Carr: Walmart


C'mon, it was late, no one was there, and besides, all I could find to wear were those leather shorts and swim fins.  The top hat was purely a fashion statement.

This quote from the article was hilarious:

"If there is one thing we all know about people who are really into saving the environment, it is that they really hate smoking pot."

Aww, no love for the "Dinosaurs" anti-drug episode?  They all got hooked on the "happy plant."  If I remember correctly, they didn't quit because they thought quitting was a good idea, but because they ate the plant into extinction.

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.

If that's not a cautionary tale, I don't know what is.

My 4th grade teacher mentioned using "bong rocks to get the most out of a joint" to us as one of the crazy things people do for love of drugs.  We had D.A.R.E. coloring books.  It seemed legit at the time.  She was a nun.
