For that I'd just go with roofies

Before I say anything, I'd just like to point out that the Ad Council is responsible for the ads, up to and including the 21st century, that depict "stoners" (aka, weed smokers) as violent and irrational. Whether or not they're irrational is up to debate, as I'd argue they're too busy eating Doritos to be rational or irrational, but violent I would argue they are not. But I digress.

And, as for my opinion, my suggestion would be to take the picture and replace the caption with something to the effect of "Pippy Drunkstockings" or "Wendy's: Home of the Bathtub Martini."

If I owned the country, I'm not sure which i would do away with first, the Ad Council, Title IX, or the Dept of Education. Tough call.

Title IX. Probably welfare first, but of those, I have to say Title IX.

These anti-drug/anti-alcohol commercials and ads do absolutely nothing. First of all, they're stupid and not even effective commercials- has anyone seen the one with the talking dog? What is that anyway? And people who do drugs and drink underage are probably just going to dismiss these ads anyway. There has to be another way to get their point across.

What an odd commercial. Maybe the dog should focus on her use of hallucinogens rather than the weed. Just saying.
