Anti-drug ads make kids want to take drugs


Anti-drug ads, which the government plans to spend $145 million to produce this fiscal year, do little to dissuade young people from taking drugs, according to research conducted by Texas State University at San Marcos psychology professors.

Even worse, the ads may actually prompt some teens to experiment with drugs -- a reaction diametrically opposite that sought by the White House Office of National Drug Policy.

This is consistent with our Anti-Terrorist position in the Middle East, which has created more terrorists.

What's the next problem which government will attack -- and how can we talk them out of it?
