Just saw the latest work of the "anti-marijuana" ad campaign. Teenage girl is pregnant, and they link it to the fact that "marijuana impairs your judgement."

How far will they go in fishing for little excuses? How many lies will they make up?

Yes weed impairs your judgement. Kinda like cough medicine. You shouldn't have either and drive a car or operate any other heavy machinery. But anyone who has ever smoked pot knows that it doesn't impair you to the point where you'll go off and fvck someone not understanding the consequence.

The people who make these ads are liars who keep sinking to lower and lower levels. Stop making sh!t up to prove your point.

I'm sure there have been far more conceptions in a state of drunkeness than while stoned.

I saw one that was like, "Marijuana: It'll get you busted!"

HELLO! IT'LL GET YOU BUSTED BECAUSE THE GOVERNMENT SAYS IT'S ILLEGAL. Legalize it, and it won't get you "busted" anymore.

Very similar to our "Get the flu shot ads" that we have here in Ontario.

They keep stating that you "can't get the flu from the shot", but they neglect to mention the other crippling diseases that can be contracted as a result of the shot.

Public disinformation is one thing that really pisses me off. :|

as many as it takes

to the people behind this type of garbage , the ends justify the means , no lie is too big if they can get people to behave the way they want. it is all a power trip by those that don't want people to live free/have Freedom of Choice

did you see the last south park? (it might have been a re-run, but i saw one a night or two ago about this, parents lying to kids to get them to not try drugs)

Thanks for clearing this commercial up. I thought she got pregnant from smoking a seed! Figured she was gonna have a little green baby with leaves for fingers. Also the one where the guy guns it out of the drive-thru because he dosen't have any money and takes out the little girl on the bike.

Actually, I smiled a little bit. If I was mad at the humorous statement you made, I would've insulted you or something. No worries. No beef.

Ads like that wouldn't bother me at all if I wasn't indirectly paying for it. If you're stupid enough to believe things you see on TV, more power to you. Hopefully you don't vote. Unfortunately, many patrons of this school of thought probably did vote, hence the laws, hence the commercial, hence more voters. Bastards. :D
