I just have to wonder how far out government will go on the “War on
Drugs.” It seems now they're willing to
anti-drug friendly TV programming in addition to regular advertising.
I'm not sure exactly how I feel about this. On the one hand, come on, it's
TV. The networks are out to make money and if someone were willing to pay
even more for pro-drug programming, we'd get more pro-drug programming
(remember: always follow the money). And doesn't this also following along
with the “Don't Drink and Drive” campaign? I wouldn't consider the
“Don't Booze and Cruise” campaign to be that bad—heck, I like that
better than the Prohibition we in the United States had in the 1920s. And
it applies social pressure to solve a problem than legislative pressure
which to me is always a good thing.
But this is “The War on Drugs” here (or as some of my friends would
say, “The War on Some Drugs”). And the government. Where does this
fervor for anti-drugs come from? Certainly not from the majority of my
friends. Perhaps we should follow the money?
