Yes, I know, the style in the ad seems to be a rip-off of cyanide and happiness. And I am very sorry :P
This is a commercial for marijuana that I had to do for a life skills project
we had to make some for of media to show:
effects of marijuana
alternative ways to cope with stress other than resorting to drugs
and an agency that helps with drug abuse

I'm not sure, but this may be a little offensive to marijuana users. If it is... i'm sorry
but i'm not a smoker, so i can't be 100% sure about all the information i put on this animation

yeahhhh

well it was funny. but do a little more research on the effects of cannabis. that part was pretty stereotypical. and yeah, no one should use it to cope with stress. except cancer patients, people with anxiety issues, glaucoma, people who want to prevent alzheimers, AIDs sufferers, people who need help weening themselves off of ACTUAL drugs, people with sclerosis, schizophenic and bi-polar people who want a sense of normalcy, and (fun fact) if used in another method besides smoking, can help deter asthma.

but uhm, 'sides the facts.....the pictures were pretty..

Meh

The use of C&H was kind of odd, though there's really no other way to draw people. The effects like the mouth moving could be a little bit better. Overall, it made me chuckle and didn't have terrible "I want to take my eyes out" graphics.

Very nice

Very well done for a school project! It was quite funny, and it mixed in very nicely with the facts you presented. I really like the really long lists of situations that got more and more ridiculous.

However, I don't think the portrayal of the pothead passed out in the alleyway is a very good depiction, I think people would associate that with harder drugs, which marijuana is not.

Also, I generally don't disagree with some of the effects that you included, although I don't think that marijuana has ever caused cancer in someone. If anything, it helps PREVENT cancer, as I've been researching marijuana extensively for a law project, and there is MUCH more evidence saying that it helps to prevent cancer.

Smoke may cause cancer, I don't think marijuana smoke can cause cancer, and if someone was worried about that, you can cook it in foods, eliminating the smoke.

Anyway, the message was nice, and I agree, you generally shouldn't resort to drugs to combat stress or depression, but honestly, I'd trust marijuana over something like xanax or prozac. And people are able to get prescribed marijuana it for both (though used in small amounts).

Anyway, I genuinely enjoyed it otherwise. Sorry for the long review.

Haha I liked it.

Well, it was awesome, although the animation could improve.
