Huffington Post Runs Story Putting the Kibosh on an Anti-Meth Campaign

Huff Poo pushes a story saying that this campaign is ineffective:

Before and After Drugs (Meth)

REHABS.com

From Huff Poo -

A new anti-crystal meth campaign featuring the warped mugshots of alleged repeat users is scary, but is it effective at discouraging drug abuse? Not really, say researchers.

Researchers however doubt the before-and-after PSA will curb meth use.

Dr. Dolores Cimini, a psychologist specializing in substance abuse counseling at the State University of New York at Albany, described the scare tactics as “health terrorism” which are not effective at altering behaviors.

!snip!

I look forward toMichael McLaughlin this writer’s (Michael McLaughlin) essay about the ineffectiveness of this health terrorism:

    What’s in it for them? Who is paying them to poopoo these ads? What crawled up their butts and died?

    Why don’t they just legalize the drugs then tax them like they do cigarettes? That would stop drug use in its tracks.

    I actually collect meth pictures and trade them. I have a 2004 that is one of the earliest known meth collectors card worth $23US! I’m waiting for the pictures on packs of cigarettes. The packs still in their original wrapper (much like an original boxed Barbie doll) are projected to fetch upwards of $130US depending on how funny the picture is.

    So this is where zombies come from. Some of these pictures are scary as Hell. I don’t think they are ineffective but then again I’m normal so what do I know.

    Effective probably only for someone who is not already hooked, otherwise useless except to terrorize those who love the addict.

    When I see pics like these, my first thought is ” i am so thankful that in my circle of friends and coworkers no one looks like this” Does that mean I am sheltered or forunate or smart enough to not hang with folks that do meth?

    Ineffective? Not only do I not want to do meth, but I also think I’m off solid food.

    “Dr. Dolores Cimini…described the scare tactics as “health terrorism” which are not effective at altering behaviors.”

    That’s patent bullshit. I know this from personal experience.

    And where IS this alleged research?
    And what alternative would these ‘experts’ suggest?

    Once again nature has stepped in to rid the world of the stupid ones. Those who do not possess the intelligence to make good life decisions should, by their own doing, remove themselves from our world.

    soooo, as the $130 million hufn poo CEO, Arianna had the ‘guts’ to showcase her entire board of directors as well as the full production staff including the writers – yet DOES NOT include herself in this magnificent display – FIT for a Christmas card..

    The burn victim may be the one John F. is refering to because the before looks a bit like she could be Anne B.’s sis-gone-bad.

    Just hope the DNC doesn’t stoop to a new low, anyone of these users would pull the barack lever in a minute for some meth.
