I remember laughing hysterically at how lame it was. We just made fun of it endlessly and whatever message it had was lost.

The best drug education I got as a kid was not cheesy art. It was being told exactly what drugs were, what they looked like, who did them (anyone - they can be sexy models like Cook), and that anyone can ruin their fucking lives doing them. Obvious straight forward shit. We were told what the risks were - I don't recall a lot of "Don't", but a lot of "do it if you want to be a fucking loser the rest of your life" but this was Canada.

I don't know that the original commercial was negative, but it was useless. "Drugs are bad m'kay" isn't interesting to me, it's overly simplistic, and I think time has shown that it's not effective.

It was super dramatic considering 90's broadcast standards. And I don't get where you got the equivalency of a nagging finger from it when it first aired. Maybe you weren't aware of heroin chic.

At the time I was a child dealing with a family member on heroin, and I found it to be really accurate. Only drug PSA I found to be truthful. It was not a simplistic drugs are bad message it was specifically regarding heroin.

no actually it works extremely well. It gets black/brown people in prison which is what the lawmakers really care about. Find something that all people do, but enforce it far more on dark skin people. Legal and effective

TV doesn't matter anymore. The old farts who channel flip through the cable lineup are well past their due date. The war is on social media now.

my friend, fox news has created a completely distorted reality for the people who vote the most, and that's a tv channel, not a social network.

I imagine people are reacting this way because GAF generally has reached a consensus on the issue and agree. It's almost impossible to see that and not agree, I know there are always excpetions to the rule but I feel pretty safe In saying it's pretty staunchly the rule in this case.

Great ad, hopefully YouTube coverage is enough. No networks are showing it I assume?

And you do not understand that those who subscribe to Fox, Breitbart, Daily Stormer, etc. are not the ones who'll flip their vote. They're happy enough getting their genitals massaged by a cadre of messengers, not journalists. The fight takes place where the Bernie voters are, the Jill Stein idiots, the 'both sides are equal' audience. In the age of dross, it takes a million criers to send facts over fiction. In the end, war isn't about obliteration, but demoralization.

Great message and a powerful counterpoint/followup to the original.

The War on Drugs has been a costly, life destroying, miserable failure. It needs to be tossed deep in the trash-bin of history, not resurrected and strengthened by the law-and-order crowd.

Your end goal is to see it propagate on air, is it not? With your calls of the importance of airtime, I would assume as much. This video has a better chance at traction on twitter with people like us pushing the message, than it does a TV network sacrificing advertising dollars for an organization with less posts than my own twitter.

okay i'm starting to get you. what i was asking is who is going to step up and pay for this because it should be paid for, by someone who does have the money to sacrifice for an organization with less posts than your own twitter. because i think that would be a very good thing. i think that could be more important than propagating it via social media, where everything gets buried quickly because the news cycle is 1/3 of a day. it also does very little to change anyone's mind because anyone sharing already agrees. you gotta blast it at people who aren't in their own bubble. but i'm less interested in arguing that last point.

Good video and all too true but the point should have been made that the war on drugs is destructive to everyone's lives. Like I'm not sure if they are saying it's a bad policy because it's racist (when in actuality it's the implementation of it that's racist) or because it's too heavy handed for whoever is caught. There are about the same amount of white people in prison for drugs whose lives will also be destroyed as well as black people because of our stupid fucking policies.
