U.S. uploads anti-drug videos to YouTube
    #6077172 - 09/19/06 10:26 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Quote:


WASHINGTON - The Bush administration is taking its fight against illegal drugs to YouTube, the trendy Internet video service that already features clips of wacky, drug-induced behavior and step-by-step instructions for growing marijuana plants.


The decision to distribute anti-drug, public service announcements and other videos over YouTube represents the first concerted effort by the U.S. government to influence customers of the popular service, which shows more than 100 million videos per day.

The administration was expected to announce the decision formally on Tuesday. It said it was not paying any money to load its previously produced videos onto YouTube's service, so the program is effectively free.

"If just one teen sees this and decides illegal drug use is not the path for them, it will be a success," said Rafael Lemaitre, a spokesman for the drug office.

The government's YouTube videos include a previously televised, 30-second ad of a teenager running from a snarling dog and bemoaning pressure from his friends to smoke marijuana.

"Then today, they said I should try to out run Tic Tic, the lumber-yard dog," the teen says. "And I don't think I can. I'm an idiot."

YouTube, a San Mateo, Calif.-based startup, has become one of the Internet's hottest properties since two 20-something friends started the company 19 months ago. The free service allows users to share and view videos, most of which are amateurishly produced and include clips of young people singing and dancing — usually badly.

The government's short public service announcements — all of which were produced previously for television — are highly polished. They will compete for viewership against hundreds of existing, drug-related videos that include shaky footage of college-age kids smoking marijuana and girls dancing wildly after purportedly using cocaine. Other YouTube videos describe how to grow marijuana and how to cook with it.

"Welcome to the great experiment," said Lee Rainie, director of the Pew Internet & American Life Project. He predicted computer-savvy critics of U.S. drug policies will quickly edit the government's videos to produce parodies and distribute those on YouTube. "This seems pretty new and pretty adventurous."

The government linked its videos with the terms "war on drugs," "peer-pressure," "marijuana," "weed," "ONDCP" and "420," so anyone searching for those words on YouTube could find its anti-drug messages. All the videos were associated with a YouTube account named "ONDCPstaff" and identified as an 18-year-old living in Washington. The term 420 is a popular reference for marijuana.

Michael Bugeja, who studies how different groups use the Internet, said the White House plan is misdirected because online video services don't afford serious consideration to weighty topics.

"It's the wrong forum and the wrong target," said Bugeja, an author and director of the journalism school at Iowa State University.

That's it. Let's all give up doing drugs. It's hopeless to continue. They even tagged it with "420", they know all our secret codes.

Haha... I just read the claim that 700,000 less young people use today than 2001... I wonder who they think they're fooling?

I was going to post a comment... But I am afraid they will look at my videos I posted of myself

"Over the past four years, there has been a 20 percent reduction in the number of young people using drugs. This translates into 700,000 fewer young people using drugs today than in 2001"

Which means that 2,800,000 kids use drugs.. Everyone fucking run for your lives. And wait a second... that makes around 800,000 that dont use drugs now? But I guess "not doing drugs" is the cool thing right

Make drugs legal, or alcohol and tobacco illegal. Either way it's more fair.

Oddly enough, the prison population for non-violent drug offences has increased to aproximately 750,000 today, up from 35,000 in 1998. (numbers are aproximate, but close to correct)

Now that they have put high quality anti-drug commercials up on youtube, i want to see high quality anti-anti-drug commercials posted on youtube.

Surely someone could make one of those commercials funny.

"To do right is to know what you want. Now when you are dissatisfied with yourself it's because you are after something you don't really want. What objects are you proposing to yourself? Are they the objects you really value? If they are not, you are cheating yourself. I don't meant that if you chose to pursue the objects you most value, you will attain them; of course not. Your experience will tell you that. But success in getting after much labor what you really don't care for is the bitterest and most ridiculous failure." -George Santayana

I can't stand your guys attitudes! Don't you realize these videos are here to help us? Clearly we have all be brain washed by peer pressure into using DRUGS! We can't even think for ourselves any more.

From now on I'm gonna start THINKING for MYSELF and do EXACTLY what I see on TV and the net!

I'm saying goodbye to seeking spiritual enlightenment and HELLO TO JACKASS 2!!!

Hmm... girls on cocaine dancing, or the government ads? I think young males will be more influenced by the government commercials and stay away from drugs, lol.

[The term 420 is a popular reference for marijuana.]

lol, this reminds me of a story in a newpaper I read about a college-age kid who went undercover and posed as a "drug user" to make busts (on a serious note, fuck this narc). Anyway, one of the lines read something like, "he (the narc) had to learn the street gang terms of the drug trade. For instance, a "QP" is a quarter-pound." Needless to say, that was fucking hilarious.

Actually, here it is:

http://www.drugsense.org/dpfwi/undercover_cop.htm

From the article

[He gave himself the nickname of "Ace."]

Ooh... impressive. He'd sure fool me.

[It takes a special individual to be an undercover agent, he said. An undercover officer has to be confident and aware, but not worried, he said.]

Special? ... I have a few other words more fitting for a narc, but I don't think I need to say any of them for anyone here to know what I'm talking about.

["I don't really feel that bad, honestly. I look at it like, 'Don't do the crime if you can't do the time,'" he said.]

Well then, I look at it like "don't be a narc unless you plan on getting stabbed or shot."

[Ultimately, Thomas said he would like to work for the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. He anticipates working undercover again, but not in Wisconsin Dells.]

Great idea; especially with this article in cyberspace.





Fuck that happened in wisconsin....
