Understanding that millions of teens could end up wasting their lives if something was not done to address the situation, parents and educators came together to make a series of educational films urging teenagers to stay away from demon rum and wacky weed!

We know from the 1960s that these kids eventually ignored all of this advice - which shows us exactly why scare tactics are a bad idea - kids are too smart to fall for it.
That said, I liked seeing what the goverenment was trying to do to scare kids onto the straight and narrow - and you get what I expected - overblown diaglog, people's lives falling apart after they smoke one cigarette etc...
It shows that the war on drugs and sex has been going on for more than 50 years with the same predictible results.
