  1. I think the point of the Partnership's advertisement was exactly that. Parents shouldn't do what that father did, they should call to find out how to deal with their child's drug use. It seemed pretty effective.

  3. The PSA isn't that great at communicating its message.

  4. CJT,
    That Andy said "Maybe the dad should get some help" demonstrates that the PSA was effective.

  5. I though it was kind of effective....you have to do something DRAMATIC to assist a friend/family to break free of addiction.

    No it wasn't. The ad should clearly demonstrate by the end of the commercial what the message is. The fact that there's any confusion about it demonstrates it doesn't work.

    In addition, the message to kids is this: don't talk to your parents about drugs, because they'll throw your stuff away.

    I know a rational policy towards drugs (i.e. decriminalization, legalization, harm reduction) is an institutional impossibility, but they can get at least get better value for money in their quixotic quest to stamp out human desire.

    What may be apparent to you may not be apparent to others.
