    I come from a family that has been wrecked by drug use. Those videos were disturbing, and will no doubt be highly effective.

    Eh, they`d be highly effective if most teenagers weren`t complete dumbasses. As it is, they`ll take their invicible mentality and say "it won`t happen to me" and do what they want regardless. Besides, having lived in Montana, there`s really nothing to do up there. A common pasttime (according to my dorm mates) was feeding birds alka seltzer so they blew up. Or having bible studies.

    Meth is sweeping the US like a firestorm. It`s way too easy to get and make (though dangerous) and it`s like the commercials say.. you -can`t- do it just once. Can. Not. It`s the most addictive street drug out there.

    Those commercials are trying to relay that. It`s an ugly drug. It does just what they show: Makes you violent, destroys your teeth, face, all of it. It destroys you and you can`t stop. Been a lot of murders over that s--t.

    Here`s to hoping it`ll make a difference.. no matter how big or small.

    Why didn`t the kid go through the window in the "Parents" one? Also those kids are true "Friends" they got her to the hospital. If I did meth and my friend ODed I would be too paranoid to put my fingerprints on the kid.

    GrnFantasic: When you`re on meth you don`t -think- like that, sorry. And frankly? Dumping someone on the street in front of the hospital is not being a friend... you`re supposed to go in with them, stay there, call their parents to tell them where their kid is, etc. That was seriously f-ed up.

    Very good ads. Somewhat reminds me of the ones back in the late 80`s early 90`s for smoking. I still chuckle when someone packs a cigarette pack thinking of those monkeys doing the same thing.

    I don`t understand your logic. How do you not get addicted to a chemical? I have friends that don`t even have the willpower to quit smoking, let alone if they tried something this powerful, a drug that has the LOWEST rate of stopping. I think it`s something like 6% of people who quit stay sober.

    It`s not exactly something people have control over, and it`s very sad.

    I think it would work for meth... But I don`t know anybody whos done it... All of my friends KNOW it`s stupid. But weed on the other hand...

    Any younger kids reading this, if you ever have any thought of even trying a drug make it pot. Almost no addiction, as long as you aren`t trying to have kids... which I hope you wouldn`t... there aren`t a lot of effects for trying it a few times.

    well, those commercials are probably quite effective.
    but i don`t know...i have never been stupid enough to even think of trying any kind of a drug. including cigarettes. so if you`re already dumb enough for trying it once, then you probably deserve it.

    yeah, these adverts are distubing, but hopefully this will get the point across?
    Meth is an ugly drug, I wud almost compare the distruction to Heroin.
    But kids nowadays will do want they want and then complain about it afterwards, it`s sad.
    Before I left the UK, Crystal Meth had begun to get a large audience in the north of the country.
    And it`s only a matter of time before the drug gets world wide, if that hasn`t happened already.

    I believe in trying anything once or twice, but not letting it rule your life...it`s just a little something called "will power." Most of the so called junkie`s I`ve met or came across, whatever, were just out of their minds, even before they started using drugs of any kind. I think if you`re going to "try" a drug, then yu should be mentally stable before hand so that i doesn`t become your obsession.

    very effective... the Bathtub one hit me so hard i almost felt of my chair...

    Good, direct, right to the point... Yet not effective... With teenagers... They have to feel the consequences "right away"... its like they are not smart engouh to see in future. No offense, its just how you are built. Then you mature (for some at least) and you can understand there is consequences...

    Those are I think base on it. If you could see right away how much it will hurt you in the future... you will not do it ... but because you are young you cant figure that it will happen to you... even if you say it will not...

    And its hard for the teenagers that are often selfcentred (no offense once again thats how it is) to understand the consequences not only affect you, but your parents, friends, .. and the one with the little sisters one made me shivers...

    I have a little brother... I look at him now and sometimes i wonder if its my fault.

    And you cannot say its a question of "self control" thats have nothing to do with it ... its chemical, its in your brain...

    And even if it was... do you realise that you sending them the message "its just self control" you know teenagers think they are godlike and they have a incredible sefl control when they do not have...

    its like feeding them to the lions telling them the lion may be vegeterian... how foolish...

    And on the "weed" question... hell its a bad habit.. but its mild... I dont disagree with weed...WHAT I DISAGREE with, is the weed is often "open the door" for others drugs.

    I rarely saw someone jump right up and do cocaine for the first drug. We all started by weed. Maybe USA are different but thats how its work here...

    So i say : be smart, dont do any. You will regret it ... its like cigarette, everyone regret they started. Same for drugs.

    Upon reading the link(Montana Meth Project), my first thought was `HOLY SH*T an entire state just said "SCREW YOU DRUG LAWS, we`re gonna make meth, LOTS of meth."` I pictured entire rural towns being turned into hubs for the making, selling, distributing, and use of the crystal delight. Then I realized it was ANTI meth and my `rock-on montana` thoughts disappeared. Boo montana, just f*cking boo.

    Some of them were overdone, however the idea remains the same. Don`t even try it people, although they make it seem like you will die or instantly become addicted and lose your life over it; it`s not worth having the excessive energy that it gives you. I`ve done meth a few times in my life, and can truthfully say if anything is too good to be true, then it is. I`ve lost a lot of friends because of this, and I hope you won`t make the same mistake in life. Have willpower to do what you believe is right. Hey, I should be a counselor or something. Anyone hiring?

Do what you want, and live life the way you want to. But every decision has a consequence that you have to face, whether good or bad.

    Yes they are both illegal, yes they both alter your mind set, one is mentally and physically addictive, while the other isn`t. I`ll give you a hint, marijuana isn`t the addictive one.

    Don`t argue with me while i`m trying to help others. Do yourself a favor and go away.

    So you want people to smoke meth, get addicted, and die from it. Wow, you are truly a great man. If you knew ANYTHING about marijuana you`d know that it`s been proven to not be addictive mentally or physically. Read up, go to school, and grow up. You are nothing more than a crap-talking teenager.

    Also, if you think I can`t read two lines of a post you seriously need help. Joking though man. Just think you`re funny. Good luck trying to act like a knowledgeable adult. Go to hell.

    Hylian seems to be correct about cannabis being addictive. Do a search for it on google.

    It doesn`t take much willpower to stop though. I smoked for a very long time and stopped quite easily (I found the addiction was mostly psychological).

    I quit smoking pretty easily too though (smoked for 10 years) so I guess it`s just me.

    I did say pot was mentally addictive, but it appears physically as well. Search on google for cannabis addictive.

    You`re really jumping to conclusions thinking I would hate someone because they do drugs. I`m not anybody`s mother, and although I have general concern for my fellow human being, I`m not going to hate you for your own decisions that don`t affect me.

    Just a note idiots. Not to break up your little party. Montana was not the ones to make these commercials at first. They used to air in every state. Well some bleeding heart liberals thought they were too shocking and the anti meth group shopped their commercials around looking for buyers.

    Anyone who says they used to do drugs is a geeky loser, the people who make fun of them for doing drugs on the internet, either do them, or are old fat prudes.

    Sorry dianne but that was disproven a while back. Marijuana is not physically addictive, but mentally i`ll give you that. Let`s read truth.org and all rejoice over propaganda spread by the government. Pot isn`t physically addictive. Cocaine is, meth is, heroine is, demerol is. Ever hear of anyone having to go through physical withdrawls from marijuana? You can only get addicted mentally :D

    Sorry HylianNinja, you can think what you want. But you can bow down and call me daddy anytime now. While you`re at it, file my tax return and get a life. Nothing smells like victory like someone who thinks they`ve proven a point. What is that point by the way? That`s right, you never made one.

    According to www.thecampuschronicle.com

    >>According to the World Health Organization, the American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association, marijuana is indeed addictive. According to High Times magazine it is not.

    Just because you don`t feel sick when you quit, it doesn`t mean it isn`t physical.

    And I`m totally a carnival ninja.

    i think the one with the friends just leaving her outside of the hospital was the most effective . at least to me . i didn`t really get the "boyfriend" one though could someone explain it to me ? oh and i`ve been skimming some of these other comments and just in my experience .. i`m a teen i`m only 16 .. i`ve smoked cigarettes before just a couple i never found anything great about them and i never have an urge for another even though both my parents smoke .. but with weed idk .. despite everyone (i mean everyone around me) saying you can`t get addicted .. if you get used to it it`s kinda hard to stop . just my input idk .

    Pimpman, Hylian: Way to have a pissing contest over unimportant s--t. Seriously. You both look like idiots to me. The point of this is that Meth is -extremely- addictive and one use can be the end of anyone`s willpower against it. It can`t be compared to Marijuana for that point. Marijuana (whether you want to say it`s only psychological, or both physical and psych) is -not- as addictive OR as dangerous as Meth is. Pull up your pants and focus on what`s important, here.

    EXPLANATIONS:
    Boyfriend: The man who left the room was a `Meth Boyfriend`. Her `real boyfriend` (the guy that came in at the end) probably hooked her up with him so she could -sleep with him- so he would give her her next Meth fix. He was `taking care of her` by providing the Meth, which is a bunch of bs.

    Parents: The parents locked the kid out because he was on Meth withdrawal which makes you (as far as I know) very angry, irritable, violent and temperamental. They couldn`t deal with him anymore so they just locked him out for their own safety. And yes, Meth can seriously screw up `good kids` or those with `high willpower`. I consider myself to be extremely willed... quitting smoking was no problem for me. We won`t get into why I started, but it got me through some tough times. I still wouldn`t think twice about trying Meth. It`s just -that bad-.

    Also, another point: If parents would teach their kids to learn that consequences can hit later and don`t have to be `immediate` then kids can learn to think `in the future`. So there`s a parenting issue, here, too. Only to some degree. It`s all about how you teach your kids to think and what values you instill in them. Just another take on it all.

    Thats a scary little drug. I read an article about people that buy homes that used to be meth labs and the chemicals were infused in the building itself. So much that the normally healthy family started having crazy medical problems. They didn`t know it was a former meth lab until it was too late...

    nah, you cant scare people out of doing drugs, these ads are over the top, no-one believes things are like that so they wont pay any attention to them. also, trying something once wont cause an addiction if you`re strong willed; repeated use will, but that`s only in people with addictive personalities.
    i read an article from a guy who said there is no such thing as a chemical addiction, people get addicted to things because they want more, like fat people who eat too much cake there`s no chemical addiction to cake is there?. dunno how much i agree wit that though. I just know if someone says you`ll get addicted to something after the first time they`re probably lying to scare you off it.
    pretty entertaining ads though i guess, and if it works for a couple of weak minded people, that`s gotta be good

    "OUOTE"--"I don`t understand your logic. How do you not get addicted to a chemical? I have friends that don`t even have the willpower to quit smoking, let alone if they tried something this powerful, a drug that has the LOWEST rate of stopping. I think it`s something like 6% of people who quit stay sober.

    It`s not exactly something people have control over, and it`s very sad."

    pimpman is right, marijuana is not physically addictive. there are no withdrawl symptoms from quitting pot. Mentally addictive just means you have LOW WILL POWER. marijuana in pure form is not addictive, but many large scale growers will use addictive additives to keep their customers coming back. moral of the story: grow your own pot, keep it small. you`ll have fun, never get caught, and stick it to the man.

    Well. One of my other friends gets high, and crap, and I told my boyfriend that Id get high with her, and he told me to not do any sort of drugs, whatsoever. He said his grandma died from it, and I was like "but...i dont think you could die from it unless you OD?" and he starting crying, and told me it was because her boyfriend got high and beat her to death. So that completely convinced me, since he said he wouldnt want anything happening to me. And this helped even more. And, I wouldnt let any of my friends do it either.

    Two things, meth is not exactly the best drug you want to be on and this video is stupid. America`s constant "war on drugs" is purely asinine. We should have the right to decide what goes into our body. Making laws which make these thing illegal only prompt crime around them such as those portrayed by this video. Make something illegal and it will join other illegal activities.

    While I have no interest recreational drugs I do not think it is the right of the government to tell us what we can and can not do to our own bodies.

    what a great quote.

    Mistorobota, I`m not sure this is about the war on drugs, I think these commercials are about what can happen to you if you go down the Meth path.

    Sure everyone can chose for themselves, but at least be educated enough to chose wisely.

    Nothing good will ever come out of using meth.

    They were very well-done ads, but I dunno if they`d work. Teenagers are retarded.

    I don`t understand the need to do drugs in the first place. Even pot. It just seems so stupid to me to want to put anything in your body that will potentially harm you (pot is not harmless, you`re still putting something foreign into your lungs). I don`t understand the need for a "buzz". I live perfectly fine without any of that.

    Maybe they don`t? *shrugs*

    And this doesn`t just affect the person who puts the drug into their bodies. It affects their family, etc, which was one of the points of the videos. Even if it *was* legal.

    "I tried meth twice when I was like 18...Didn`t seem that great to me...I really don`t see why people allow themselves to get addicted to crap like that..."

    Well, with drugs it usually only takes two or three tries to get addicted. You`re really lucky you didn`t.

    Great ads... in my opinion, meth is shaping up to be the "crack of 2000s" in a lot of places where it has started spreading around. Drugs like this, like crack, like heroin, just prey on human life. There`s no good side to them, they wreck people, and the more ads like these can discourage people who might consider using them, the better. I don`t know about the US, but here in Canada a lot of drugstores have a thing called MethWatch, where if someone tries to purchase or obtain large quantities sort of medication that could be used to cook up some meth, I believe they could be reported to the police? I`m not sure exactly how it works but it`s a good idea in my opinion.

    As for those of you saying marijuana is not addictive, you`re completely and utterly wrong. I know several people who are addicted to pot. And yes, it is a physical thing. These people have been able to quit smoking, yet they still continue needing pot. One of my friends in particular was shocked into quittin

    ...when he began coughing up blood, yet days later he had to start smoking pot again. Any drug is addictive, hell anyTHING is addictive. as long as your mind associates it with the production of endorphins, serotonin or dopamine, you are physically addicted. TV, sugar, sex, drugs, music, whatever.

    I`m from Montana and have to deal with this poo all the time on tv. They have advertisements and billboards all over the place too. I`ve never had a problem with meth but it has become a big problem in Montana.

    Pretty good commercials. I like `em. My step dad was a drug addict and and alcoholic and when I was 5-7 I had to go to AA/drug meetings with him and wait on this little couch and these people would give me cookies, and in kindergarten the teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said "An alcoholic!" and the teacher asks, "...Why?!?" I said, "You get to eat cookies all day!"

    I got put in time out...

    "Mistorobota, I`m not sure this is about the war on drugs, I think these commercials are about what can happen to you if you go down the Meth path.

    Sure everyone can chose for themselves, but at least be educated enough to chose wisely.

    Nothing good will ever come out of using meth."

    Right and a 30 second clip about stereotypical scenarios regarding meth really educates people. People will always find a vice no matter what it is. It might change the few who are easily swayed by just about anything, but no teenager will honestly rethink their drug habits. Scare tactics don`t help teenagers, it just reinforces their paranoia about parents and their use of a given media outlet.

    for some reason i found boyfriend to be the most effective, as well as the one with the friends dropping the girl of at the hospital. It just shows how when you`re that addicted, the drug is the only thing you can trust.

    I was addicted to meth for some time when I was younger. It was ugly, and terrible. Quitting was no fun, but I`ve been off of it for over ten years now. And it is only now that I`m starting to get my life and my mind together. I hope that just one person is affected by these commercials in such a way that they do not ever touch that drug.

    They should show these in Canada. Especially where I live. Meth is a huge problem here now and the people in these videos look like people I see just walking around the grocery store. We`ve even got a nickname now : Sel-crack, Meth-atoba.

    "be it drinking or drugs my reason not to do it is the same. if you do it to have a good time that means you dont like something about yourself and need help. if you do for other reasons you need help."

    not everyone who needs help can get help. It`s a thousand times easier to do pot than to change your life.
    They say pot kills ambition. They`re right, it replaces it when you realize that your dreams will never come true.

    SarahofBorg: You got it right--after all the "addictive/not addictive" argument, you hit it on the head. My experience is that while high on weed, you dream of wonderful, wonderous things to do. In fact, you dream faster than you could typically execute. Then you come down, and you have no desire to do much besides burn another bowl.

    BTW: what is the frigging secret to watching the meth videos? I roll over the titles and what-not, but they aren`t links. other stuff I click on gets me pdf files. Anyone?

    Why is everyone implying that teenagers are the only stupid ones that try meth? Adults do it to, I am a teenager and i would never try try meth becuase i already know what it would do to me. The only drug i ever tried was weed but im not stupid enough to do it again, even thought i know it wouldnt to THAT much to me unless i took it loads.

    carnivia2: I explained `boyfriend` on page four.

    canoeguy: Click the picture. -.-

    I`d like to know why so many people have this `careless` attitude and negative outlook on this. THOSE are the people I hope rot in hell. How dare you get so arrogant to stop giving half a damn about anyone else, and to even step in and negate a positive attempt to help other people make better decisions (whether it works or not). Seriously. Are you that desperate for attention? Here`s your attention: STFU and go to hell.

    I`m so sick of people who have this whole `who cares` or `it`s funny` attitude. You`re not cool, not cute, and obviously just a lonely idiot crying for attention.

    ------

    As for this whole physical vs psychological thing? Anyone looked up the facts yet? I`ll be happy to if no one links just to shut the lot of you up so you can refocus on the important aspects (once again stated on page four).

    Meth: DEA webpage on Meth.
    "Addiction is a chronic, relapsing disease, characterized by compulsive drug-seeking and drug use which is accompanied by functional and molecular changes in the brain."

    Marijuana: Basic info on Marijuana Second link is better.
    In short, Marijuana (as Pimp said) alters a person psychologically to where they might want to keep doing it because it makes them feel happy. This is addicted like a video game is addictive, but not a physical need that creates withdrawal.

    Second DEA Marijuana Page
    No where on here does it mention `addiction` as defined above, `both chemical -and- molecular changes in the brain`.

    The commercials are targeted towards the meth user.

    In "Boyfriend," the girl is prostituting herself to a man that pays her boyfriend with, what else, a baggie of meth, of which he gives to her.

    "my boyfriend takes care of me"

    Hmm...lots of these comments really pissed me off. I think I`ll leave Hylian and Pimpman420 alone...not only because no one wants to hear about them again but because who can take guys fancying themselves to be ninjas or pimps seriously?

    So Mistoroboto. Couple of things I really don`t like.

    "I do not think it is the right of the government to tell us what we can and can not do to our own bodies."

    Err..nah. Look at humans...they`re stupid. They need looking after. It`s all about paternalism, to stop people harming themselves. It`s like stopping a baby playing with a carving knife. Sure, it`s free to do so, but to let it play with it is really bloody stupid.

    "might change the few who are easily swayed by just about anything"

    Well then it`s a huge success! And teenagers would rethink drug habits. But you`re like the ones who think they know more than the experts. You wouldn`t be affected, so suddenly no one else should be, and if they are they are weak.

    I hate that character limit. Because there`s just one more thing.

    "Right and a 30 second clip about stereotypical scenarios..."

    Oooh, stop right there. Later on you come onto stereotyping teenagers as all being disfunctional and paranoid about their parents. Bit of hypocrisy there. Not all of us are delinquents. Scare tactics do work against the people who actually still give a damn about themselves. But those people are often swayed by peer pressure, so the government tries to sway them back. Stereotypical scenarios or not, they`re perfectly likely to happen to anyone, as you never know if you`ll get addicted.

    One final note about willpower. If you think you have the willpower to try drugs once and stay off, then you`re a fool. If you have the willpower to say no to them altogether, you`re a hero.

    Hehe, I wonder how many people will read this to the end.

    I agree with cannibal151. The "Parents" one was pretty funny. I understand the concept behind it, but listening to him scream and see them try to go to bed is funny. How can they sleep through that, and why wouldn`t they just call the cops. I didn`t get that bathtub one though. Was that supposed to be her future self (maybe a few days or weeks at most) warning her not to do meth when the decision shows up soon?

    I thought the Just Once one was really good. Because it`s absolutely true. Young kids always find an older role model and I know that I care too much about the little girl that looks up to me to let myself be that bad of an example to her.

    Over all the ads were really good though and the prints ads were amazing too.

    We had a presentation about this last year at my school and the mentioned that meth addicts will eat their scabs in order to get high and frankly the mere thought of that is enough to turn me off meth forever.

    hylianninja, pot isn`t addictive. I do it about once every 3 or 4 months. and i had a period where i did it for about 5 months straight, then i just stopped unless someone offered some to me for free(which hardly happens).. You`re one of those people that actually believes those anti marijuana ads. my point is though, that i`ve always been able to stop whenever. And all of my friends that do it are the same way..

Watch things like the UK`s "THINK!" commercials about driving safety, now they`re horrific... As for Meth.

    Stick with pot, kids.
    I have a friend who does a little coke (don`t do coke either, kid) and one time, he got slipped meth instead of coke, and he said it was seriously the worst night of his life. He was depressed. I had to talk to him on the phone, which wasn`t as fun as it usually is.
    Fortunately, he`s not a meth-head, so he isn`t trying to whore me out to anyone for meth or anything... Not that I`d let him. As much as I love the boy, I`d stop all communication with him if he became a meth-head. Same with coke. If he ever becomes so addicted, I`m leaving.

    Oh, btw, living in the center of meth country, I think we should have a few of these one TV. We don`t get any anti-meth stuff here, just weed... which is bullsh*t

    The "Boyfriend" one was soooo sad. :-(

    Personally, if I ever wanted to get wasted, I would do it in my home with the doors and windows locked with *maybe* a few friends that I trust. One of my worst fears is rape, and getting drunk/high in public only increases the chances of me getting sexually assaulted.

    And yes, I know that the girl in the "Boyfriend" commercial wasn`t necessarily raped, but it certainly didn`t look like she enjoyed it.

    "If I did meth and my friend ODed I would be too paranoid to put my fingerprints on the kid."

    lmfao

    "Any younger kids reading this, if you ever have any thought of even trying a drug make it pot."

    "Younger kids"? What are you, 14?

    "How do you not get addicted to a chemical?"

    The same way I`m not "addicted" to painkillers, even though I pop 13 a day. XDXDXD

    "I have friends that don`t even have the willpower to quit smoking..."

    You`re friends suck, it isn`t that hard.

    God, most of you suck badly.

    lol the most f*cked up thing about my country (singapore) is that if ure ever caught doing any sort of drug they just throw u in jail for 30 years or so. how ironic is that? its like screwin up someones life becoz they are screwin it up themselves by doing drugs in the first place. these people need help not freakin punishment goddam singapore law argghh!!

    btw, dont do coke either. a friend of mine used to do coke and one time she bought a bag of the stuff but the dealer mixed in crushed bits of glass so it would seem like hes selling more and he would make more money and when she snorted it the glass cut her up real bad on the inside and blood was comin out of her nose and mouth and friggin all over the place it was horrible. they should make that story into an ad it`ll scare u more than those meth ones lol

    EDUCATE YOURSELF.

    A non-biased source of drug FACTS, not propaganda. Meth is a terrible drug, yes, and these commercials seem like they will be an effective method of preventing the "weekend warriors" from giving it a try.

    I think the commercials are great. I just wish they would make similar commercials for other drugs, and broadcast them nationally.

    Yall are saying things like "i hate propaganda" Is this really considered propaganda? On Wiki it says Propaganda is a "type of message aimed at influencing the opinions or behavior of people... propaganda can be deliberately misleading, using logical fallacies,"

    Sounds like propaganda is misleading and held in a negative light.....don`t these commercials have positive ideals? Why should we be against them?

    Contrast - I know it is wrong of me to judge by a single post, but it seem you are a very negative person and i feel sorry for you.

    Oh, and how is this Darwin at work? I don`t understand....

    Holy poo I am an Ex Addict and I have been clean now for Almost 3.5 years from meth! I got out of Prison For meth related crimes 1 year 3 months ago. Mother was the one that made my skin crawl! I just called my mom to say sorry! I wish they would start playing stuff like that more often in California. I live in one of the Meth capitals of the U.S. San Bernardino County. I hope more people visit this site before it`s too late! Take it from me.. Ex convict, on parole, not allowed to see my own child. 3 felonies 18 misdemeanors. 7 years of my life have been spent inside jails and institution`s because of my past 10 years of addiction. I maybe clean today but I live just for today!

    Pretty good commercials. I like `em. My step dad was a drug addict and and alcoholic and when I was 5-7 I had to go to AA/drug meetings with him and wait on this little couch and these people would give me cookies, and in kindergarten the teacher asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said "An alcoholic!" and the teacher asks, "...Why?!?" I said, "You get to eat cookies all day!"

    I got put in time out...

    Well, Ashwey she is prostituting herself for money for METH. You know what would really scare kids? If people went around in "dumpy clothes for a day, and wore EXTREME makeup and looked like they did meth. Then if people stare at you, you tell them "Hey if you do meth this is what you look like, not that I do it`s just an act to convince people. Like "experementing" teens that meth is EXTREMELY bad and deadly to you."

    Being from montana, i know these commercials, they used to be on all the time, but now they aren`t on anymore... and they do more than just commercials, they have billboards and displays. There was one with a hook through a person that said "dont get hooked" and had hamburger meat and blood and nasty stuff all over and they MADE THEM TAKE IT DOWN. just because it scared kids..
    that`s the dratting point of it!!
