US Government Goes Viral With The Anti-Drug Message

Can really stoned people run like the wind?

From CNN:

The White House is distributing government-produced, anti-drug videos on YouTube, the trendy Internet service that already features clips of wacky, drug-induced behavior and step-by-step instructions for growing marijuana plants.
The government linked its videos with the terms “war on drugs,” “peer-pressure,” “marijuana,” “weed,” “ONDCP” and “420,” so anyone searching for those words on YouTube could find its anti-drug messages. All the videos were associated with a YouTube account named “ONDCPstaff” and identified as an 18-year-old living in Washington. The figure 420 is a popular reference for marijuana, and officials said. The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy was created 18 years ago.
