    Public Service announcements such as this are poignant and sobering reminders to our youth.

    I've got no problem with it.

    Just say no. To drugs and bullshit.

    I think it's inspiring and challenges our youth to aspire to something better.

    There is no interest in getting people off drugs. If we learn anything at all from Whitney Houston's death it's that drugs are being glorified more than ever before. I'm surprised that drugs haven't been legalized long before this. Aldous Huxley knew that widespread drug use could be used to control massively large numbers of people. Of of the basis of his utopian Brave New World was mandated drug use.

    The message. Marijuana is less of a problem than alcohol and I am pretty sure jumping off a roof is not something most people want their kids doing.

    Denial.... it ain't just de river in Egypt.

    Drugs are bad for ya. Alcohol is bad for ya. Such is life.

    I don't need a government to tell me this stuff.

    And I don't want idiots legalizing shit so I have to pay for your fucking life choices.

    Look at it this way. Legalizing drugs is a way to clean out the system in more than one way. The cartels have gotten almost 50,000 users and dealers out permanently. Whitney Houston died at 48 Her daughter OD'd the day before her mother kicked off and did it again the day she died. She's 18. Amy Weinhouse kicked off at 29. Addicts don't need less drugs, they need MORE. All the drugs they can stuff up their nose, down their guts and in their veins.

    Most drug users are liberals anyway. It is a small loss when they go.
