You've all seen that stupid commerical saying that if you buy drugs youre a terrorist, right? Basically it has a bunch of teenagers giving common reasons for why they can use drugs....i.e "It's my body", "It's only fun", "I'm not hurting anyone", etc, but it has them interlaced with statements such as "I helped kill a judge", "I blew up a building", "I kidnapped someone's father", and so on. Then a message comes on the screen stating "Drug Money supports terror. If you buy drugs, you might too." This commercial is stupid for a number of reasons. First of all, its relying on the terrible tragedy of 9/11 as a vehicle for pushing other non-related issues to the forefront of American conscience, in an effort to associate the War on Drugs with patriotism and pride. This is taking advantage of the misfortune that happened and cheapening it into an advertising tool. Secondly, it's highly ineffective. What teenager is going to watch this commerical and then decide, "You know what? I'm not gonna go smoke pot with my friends tonight. I don't wanna mistakenly fund any terrorism operations"? None. Ths brings me to my next point. This is just another last ditch effort from the completely failing War on Drugs. It just doesn't work. The government pumps more money into the War on Drugs than it does to Education, yet the War on Drugs continues to fail as the Education system continues to falter when it should be receiving the budget allocations that are being given to the War on Drugs. America as a country needs to evaluate the situation and come to the correct conclusion that the War on Drugs just doesn't work and abandon it before it has even more of a negative effect on the rest of our lives. Lastly, the commercial is deceptive and borderline incorrect. While it is true that countries such as Afghanistan recieve a majority of their money from opium fields and poppy seeds, the commercial is not geared towards your serious crack junkie or coke addict. The people shown in the commercial making the statements are people likely to smoke pot with their friends. They're pimply faced teenagers shown in the commercial, not hardcore drug addicts. People who go buy pot in their neighberhood from guys named Ganja and Jesse are not funneling money to terroist plans, they're funneling money to Ganja and jesse's videogame plans. The only drug money that supports terror is that which comes from your hardcore heroin junkies and such, and I don't believe people who live that sort of lifestyle are going to stop it on a dime because some commercial said it would be American to do so. This commercial is poorly though out, propagandous, deceptive, and another gleaming example of wasted money that is continually pumped into the War on Drugs.
