The “Reefer Madness” style commercials of the past

“I Learned it From Watching You!” 5 Anti-Drug PSA’s that Failed Miserably at Trying to Scare Us

If there is one aspect of the war on drugs in which we can find humor, it’s the PSA announcements warning kids to stay off “drugs.”

These ridiculous short commercials were blasted at kids during the 80’s and the 90’s. The laughable scare tactics and outright Reefer Madness employed in these commercials did very little to curtail the usage of recreational drugs.

The fact that marijuana was demonized on the same airwaves that glorify alcohol, speaks to the sheer ignorance of the state’s campaign. It is no secret that alcohol is magnitudes more deadly than recreational drugs.

In fact, multiple studies have shown that alcohol is more dangerous than even heroin and cocaine. Prescription drugs are also far more deadly than any of these “illegal” substances.

Where were the commercials warning kids not to drink Bud Light or not to pop OxyContin?

The answer the that question is simple, the Partnership for a Drug Free America is largely funded by the US Government and Pharmaceutical Companies. And no, this is not a conspiracy theory. You can read the donor list on their own newly rebranded website.  Or, you can look at the old donor list here.

Join us as we count down five of the most eye-roll worthy drug PSAs that tried to scare the sh*t out of us, but really didn’t.

    My friends and I are old enough to remember most of these, which reveals our ages.

    At any rate, the original one with eggs I always thought was hilarious — we used to joke about that one all the time school.

Just look at us. Everything is backwards, everything is upside down. Doctors destroy health, lawyers destroy justice, psychiatrists destroy minds, scientists destroy truth, major media destroys information, religions destroy spirituality and governments destroy freedom.

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.

If the freedom of speech is taken away, then dumb and silent we may be led, like sheep to the slaughter.

You learn that you either are going to have a police state where you don't have any freedom left, or you're going to build a world that doesn't create terrorists, and that means a whole different way of getting along.
