Psychedelic anti-Marijuana TV spot from the 1980s

Transmitted from the "Just Say No" 1980s, this delightfully psychedelic anti-pot public service message.


  1.  If only there were some plant we could ingest to assist in finding our inner tech-wizard.

  2. The problem with so many of these public service announcements (from the 1940s until today) is not the intentions, but the execution. Children and teenagers should definitely be warned or “educated” about the ill-effects of various drugs. But on the other hand, there are few PSAs that explain the positive benefits of some drugs and substances. This PSA seems to be more of an advertisement for repetitive and frightening mind control than an even-tempered view of pot use. Very colorful and well-filmed, though!

        1. I’d really like to see an unedited version. I grew up in the 80’s, but somehow missed this PSA. And I’m sure I would have remembered it because I bet the original is at least as trippy as the EverythingIsTerrible version.

  3. God, I remember this propaganda all too well.  Some of these things were so creepy they really did a number on my preteen psyche.  I especially remember the “Just Say No” episode of Bravestarr.  Gave me nightmares for weeks.

  4. I can appreciate using your mind to make smarter choices, but his final recommendation to also use your crotch doesn’t seem like such a good idea.

  5. “I mean you can’t even drive a car…”

    Like bitch, you’re 10, you don’t know a god damn thing about driving a car. Don’t talk about shit like it’s easy if you’ve never done it.

  6. It is not often I watch a BB link while wondering over and over again WTF….WTF….WTF….WTF?
