Anti-drug ads finally gone
    #602712 - 12/24/11 04:11 PM (4 years, 11 months ago)



Friends,

I wanted you to be the first to know that President Obama is about to sign a law that removes all funding for the federal government's National Youth Anti-Drug Media Campaign!  You know the ads.  They say that if a young person uses marijuana, his girlfriend will run off with a space alien.  Or he'll accidentally eat his fist. 

Wiping out this ad campaign wouldn't have been possible without the tireless efforts of SSDPers like Aditya, Katharine, and Tim. They travelled from Columbia University to Washington, D.C. for SSDP's lobby day in March 2011.  Their message: stop waging this wasteful campaign in our names.

Please consider making a tax-deductible contribution to so that we can empower more students like Aditya, Katharine, and Tim!

This is the first time since the start of the ad campaign in 1998 that funding was totally wiped out.  And not only does the new law remove all funding for the anti-drug campaign next year, it actually requires the drug czar's office to return all $6 million they have left from last year. 

I don't need to tell you that it's not everyday that the drug war industrial complex takes this kind of hit.  Sometimes living in Washington, D.C. can be depressing, given how little progress is made.  But seeing students in action is truly inspiring — especially when we win.

Please support our work so that we can continue to rack up the victories!

Yours In Struggle,
Aaron

This is a good thing. But at the same time.. kinda sucks. I am going to miss sitting on the couch watching tv, taking bong rips when one of these commercials come on. I always got a good laugh out of them.

I wouldn't say that.

If it ever happens, it WON'T be because of Harper, he is way too redneck/wanna be Bush

In no way says that the private sector won't take it's place. I don't believe Above the Influence was government funded; what about all the Mother's against groups? This is good news but take it with a grain of salt in my opinion...

I used to be part of an SSDP chapter, makes me proud to know the organization is still going strong.
