British Anti-Marijuana Ad 2009-03-02 22:26:43 Reply

Hahaha, those silly Britons. Although they may have bad teeth, they sure know how to make a good anti-smoking ad. We here in the United States, with the worst, unfunny, and stupid anti-weed commercials in the world, are forced to watch said commercials over and over again.
So, Britons, my question is this. Would you say British people are more lax about drug control than in America, or more hard?

There were far more 'Cool Simons' then 'uncoool Simons', I think the positive effects outweigh the negative ones.

But yeah, that was actually a pretty decent commercial. Doesn't make me want to become a druggie just to spite them.

Exactly... American commercials in general are so uncreative... They lack wit, they lack a punch.

all anti-marijuana ads are fucking retarded, anyone who is anti-marijuana is a fucking retard. even though i will say the brit one at least has something to do with weed, unlike all american ads which are just random bullshit and then tells you it's anti-weed at the end.

On the note of those "Above the influence" ads.

I find pot just brings out who people really are, I noticed that people who get paranoid/lazy/depressed were already like that before they started smoking pot, its just people forget when there high how to cover who they really are and people notice.

There should be stricter penalties for marijuana consumption and possession.
There should also be a carpet ban on alcohol and tobacco, with possession punishable by extradition to Guantanamo Bay.

Take your drunken ass and go hang out with the terrorists, where you belong.

legit, i loooove how everyone thinks weed is sooo bad. all these commercials, EXPECIALLY the one with the dog (about weed) SHOULD be talking more about crack or heroin or some other hard shit. i mean literally, when you blaze, yeah you get a little giggly, forgetful, and munchy, biut that shit wears off after a nap or a few hours of ENJOYABLE (key word: ENJOYABLE) relaxing time. whats so bad about smoking weed? i love it. fuck all of you nay-sayers. im going to roll a blunt now. PEACE!


Yeah, I bet you do.

i dont feel like typing all the reasons they're fucking retarded. all the information is out there. weed is harmless, it doesnt necessarily have to be legalized, but definitely decriminalized nationwide. it'll prolly be legal here in california in a year or 2 tho.

ONCE in the three years of constant weed smoking that was the last three years of my life have I had anything even CLOSE to a panic attack, and that was when after three weeks without smoking I smoked some DANK shit and had an acid flashback. And that was more discomfort with te unfamiliar and unexpected disassociation.

And even then, once I realized it, it was fun.

If you're gonna panic from weed, you're gonna panic when your dog gets inside when you're trying to put it out, and as such are not the type for mind alteration. Avoid extremes because you're either emotionally and mentally unstable to begin with or just a PUSSY.

Weed is fine.

I think it's quite accurate.

Because it shows that you are in control.

You choose to open the door, you decide how it effects you.

The ad doesn't really do that of course but the concept is good.

And those are symptons of smoking weed, which makes it all the better.
