Drug "Education" Songs


The latest Office of National Drug Control Policy ads are using children's tunes (the Alphabet Song, Baa Baa Black Sheep... they must like that tune) to pitch their "talk to kids about drugs" message. It's hard to imagine that a marketing firm could come up with a more effective set of jingles to sell drugs to toddlers.

  1. Considering the same people behind this aggressive campaign would go all Pat Robertson if the subject matter of the extremely explicit lyrics happened to be birth control, or S-E-X, yes, I have to say I find the advertisements inappropriate at best.

    Especially when my ten-month old crawls into the living room in an attempt to sing along. I would actually prefer her small period of innocence be shattered by birth control or S-E-X jingles.
