Harper Government’s Marijuana Ad Is Being Disliked To Hell

The federal government’s latest anti-marijuana ad says the science on the drug is clear.

Yet, the Internet’s verdict on the ad is even clearer. It hates it.

The ad, titled “Drug Prevention — Marijuana Use,” has drawn 2,515 dislikes and a flurry of negative comments on Reddit since it was posted to YouTube on Oct. 20.

By contrast, only 104 users gave it a “thumbs up” on the video-sharing site.

In the ad, a narrator asks over ominous music, “Did you know that marijuana is on average 300 to 400 per cent stronger than it was 30 years ago? And that smoking marijuana can seriously harm a teen’s developing brain?”

It goes on to say, “Smoking marijuana. It can damage a teen for life.”
