Everyone has seen the movie 'Reefer Madness' by now, and is familiar with how it's intention backfired, to become a cult drug movie classic. Since then, there have been other attempts to hit on something that grabs the youth of America's imagination so that they'll stay away from the evil drugs (until they're 21, then they can have as much government-approved drugs as they want). So far they have only served to be turned around, twisted or completely ignored. Now, we have one that will backfire so quickly, people will think a sonic boom happened in the middle of their city.

Understandably, NASA would like to see the people on their Space Shuttle to be drug free. I happen to agree. Flying a high-tech behemoth with a head full of acid not a good idea from any angle. In an attempt to encourage other future astronauts to lay off the happy stuff, NASA spent a lot of money to come up with a new slogan: 'Explore Space - Not Drugs."

After seeing the variants on D.A.R.E, I just can't wait to see how this one ends up being used.

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
