Tennessee’s new governor has hit upon the greatest idea to battle the scourge of drugs since Nancy Reagan’s “Just Say No!” campaign! No, really!
Gov. Bill Haslam today is expected to kick off a new anti-meth campaign called “Meth Destroys” featuring the first educational video created for middle and high school students since the state’s initial meth campaigns in 2005. The video is the latest weapon in the war on meth.
The Tennessean gets extra-stupid points for the hyperbolic bullshit rhetoric. An educational video! What a brilliant idea! No one has ever thought of that before! Oh, wait:
Pfft. I’m not implying meth is as benign as pot, but it’s not like we weren’t forced to watch lame educational videos and listen to anti-drug lectures from Policeman Bob all through school when we were kids. Didn’t do a damn thing.
Hey, Governor: how about just focusing on jobs so people don’t have to cook meth to make money? Maybe help people get into treatment? Offer some kind of social services support to help people stay clean? How about opening TennCare up to dental care, to help those afflicted with meth-mouth? You know, something that actually helps people?
I know, it’s crazy talk.
