So the government is putting up drug propaganda on You Tube. WTF? Like this is going to be the breakthrough they have been looking for in their WAR on drugs. Maybe if they moved away from weak lie based films that insult the intellect of teens, they would be more effective in their crusade. I don't know.
I figured that if the folks in Washington could put anti-drug films up at you tube, I sure as hell could too. So here you go, this is the first of many video pieces I hope to get up online.
This is an anti-marijuana piece I made a while ago, and now with the moe. down picture accusations, and the government you tube decision, I feel it is the perfect first piece to upload.
WASHINGTON - The White House is distributing government-produced, anti-drug videos on YouTube, the trendy Internet service that already features clips of wacky, drug-induced behavior and step-by-step instructions for growing marijuana plants.
The decision to distribute public service announcements and other videos over YouTube represents the first concerted effort by the U.S. government to influence customers of the popular service, which shows more than 100 million videos per day.
The administration was expected to announce its decision later Tuesday. It said it was not paying any money to load its previously produced videos onto YouTube's service, so the program is effectively free. Already by Tuesday, thousands of YouTube users had watched some of the government's videos.
