Drug war ad money is better spent on economic development

clipped from

We’re as anti-meth as the next thinking person (because, you know, it destroys lives and kills people), but does anyone actually think these ads are going to be effective?

Drug addiction is sad, lonely and pathetic. But idiotic advertisements and sexed up ad campaigns aren’t going to keep people off meth. People use “gutter drugs” like meth because their lives aren’t rosy to begin with. Spend the money wasted on this nonsense helping the economically devastated towns in the plains, where meth is rampant, to build new industry, get better schools and after-school programs. Stop scaring people and using sex to do it.
