Expensive, difficult, slightly dangerous, not particularly effective... I'm on a roll.

illegal, cultural, and not hidden drugs commercial.. imagine you're unaware of the existence of any drug, are not familiar with the concept, you can't conceive the idea of free pleasure, but, suddenly, you feel like you want to be on drugs
my idea of an illegal commercial is strongly related with the "free speech" amendament and the fact that knowing that drugs exist and knowing their effects and concequences just isn't enough motivation for someone start using drugs. therefore, I propose for the production of drug-commercials which would be sponored by the drug-lords in the area where the commercials can be seen. the purpose is for the drug-dealers to introduce new type of drugs to their usual customers, and also to the ones who don't use drugs, don't want to, and who don't have specific information about drugs. it would sound like "new X, now with strawberry energy flavour" or "blue heroin - no chance of overdose" or something like that. the commercials would also involve stars who, given an easy-obtainable but huge amount of money, will state their drug addiction while on-stage, or during interviews. Imagine Britney, after the release of her <I don't know how many>'th album say "hi, you know, I have a confession to make - big smiles - I'm on coke for 1 year now, and I feel so full of life !" of course, she wouldn't have to be for real, that's not necessary. The following police investigations would only add to the publicity though, and an eventual charge would just bring realism (Mariah Carey used to be caught stupidly carrying weed around..). most of Britney's fans would become junkies and so the drug-lords` investment would be profitable.
Now, if it were for us to think big, we should imagine films showing drug addicts find hapiness, build a career, or any other important, non realistic fact you can think of.. or imagine paintings representing persons using drugs (young artists would do that) or music with drugs theme. hip hop artists rapping about drugs.. ahmm.. sorry... I think it's all allready been baked...
