Blogging is my Anti-Drug
Radiation Level: Guarded
Listening To: Ride a White Horse (FK Disco W***es Dub) by Goldfrapp
In doing research for my script about a 13-year-old girl getting her ass kicked by Jr. High, I came across some anti-drug slogans. FalloutGirl is all about living a healthy, productive life, but…seriously? Some adult somewhere is pushing these smug mantras on kids? If this is the best we can do, our kids are in deep trouble. Moms, weigh in!
This is probably my favorite in terms of delineating life-style choices. But “healthy” has so many layers – is a cheeseburger “healthy”? Is staying up all night cramming for a test “healthy”? Maybe someone should be promoting endorphins. Get high on endorphins, nature’s crack. Or My mood is morphin’ from natural endorphins.
Up with Hope. Down with Dope.
Hope is a tricky thing. Ask Obama.
Thanks for this one, Nancy Reagan.
Use your brain, don’t fry it!
Instead, use your brain power to update your status on Facebook or look for magic mystery mice on Farmville.
Drugs affect more than just you
This is poignant. But if we’re talking teenagers, they have no ability to put anyone else’s needs first, so I’m not sure of its effectiveness. Worth a try.
I like it. There’s a bit of an affirmation in there.
Shoot for the Stars not your arms
That’s just nasty. Maybe that’s the point.
Drugs are whack so watch your back
Well, yes, you piss off a drug dealer and you could be in some hot water but I don’t think this is specific enough. Maybe a graphic showing some drug pusher with a glock hunting down his client would help.
Be the best you can be- be drug free
Sounds too much like the army slogan.
Drugs cost you more than just money
Yes. Another graphic would help here, say a close up on someone who’s lost all their teeth. Or some really skinny girl on coke? Wait, nevermind.
No need for weed
Except that California could tax it if it was legalized and maybe could hire back all those teachers that got laid off.
Stand up to drugs or fall to your knees
Sounds like a new dance. Macarena, move over!
Hang tough, don’t puff
Could also work as an anti-homosexual slogan for the religious fundamentalists.
One is too many and a thousand is never enough
I don’t get this one.
I rather eat bugs than do drugs
Stellar. I wanna be your friend.
Lions, and Tigers and Bears oh my…Drinking and Smoking and Drugs? Goodbye!
Netflix recommended the horror movie Carrie to me based on me liking The Wizard of Oz. WTF???
Don’t Huff, Don’t Puff. Keep away from that stuff!
Stuff being straw houses?
Do a good deed and kill the weed
Not sure what the environmental impact will be.
Wasted? So is your life
Way to make me feel like a loser.
Mary Jane ruins the brain
Does anyone still use the term Mary Jane?
Hugs not drugs
I’m sure the conservative right would be against this one, since hugs could be considered foreplay and might lead to premarital sex.
Keep off the Grass!
Okay fellow writers, get to work. I challenge all of you to come up with a new anti-drug slogan. Send them in and I’ll post them here!
