Meth Ads…Crossing the Line!?


I was appalled when I saw one of these Meth ads for the first time. They not only scared me but made me think how others felt about them. I think they are terrible, but that they are certainly leaving a lasting impression…

Let me know what you think. Comment!!

Here are a couple of the ads.

not even once…

  1. These ads/PSAs definitely leave an pretty big impression, but maybe that’s a good thing.

    If these prevent anybody from trying meth, then they’ve helped the world be a better place.

    One of my friends used to be addicted to meth–along with numerous other narcotics–before I met him. From what he says, it’s the most addicting thing he’s ever experienced. Luckily, he’s clean now, but some of the stories he’s told me and our friends just blow my mind.

    I’d be interested to see what he has to say about these ads.

    I definitely agree that these meth ads are in your face, scary, and slightly disturbing. But I think that was the point in making them. Most ads attempt to draw you in so that you will try a product or service. This ads purpose is to scare the crap out of you so that you will never go anywhere near meth. Not even once. I actually think that these ads are quite brilliant and very effective. I know that it would make me think twice before using meth, not that I have ever had the desire to do so. These ads so us a different side to PR. The darker side, if you will.
