  18. I watched the male version of binge drinking at least six times. Im sorry but that's frickin funny

  19. Why didn’t you include the alternate version of PSA #4 where a sheet is thrown at the end

  20. Hey just wanted to point this out IN MY OPINION "POT" is not a BAD drug If u ask me Id rather smoke pot then drink, take meth, take cocane, or anyother type of drug. Shit u can even drive while smoking weed But u do have to be carefull not to take LOADS of it as in like 1 pound demending on the TCH level

  21. Everyone's joking about the overdose ad but damn, that's real… i had to deal with parents suffering from addiction so it hits home

  22. Why-oh-why is no one talking about that horrifying 911 call? It's completely terrifying and devastating.

  23. Ronald Reagan may have overexaggerated in his anti-drug campaign, but the dangers and consequences of addiction are real. I'd say drugs should literally be used only for medical purposes, but even then people can become addicted accidentally, if you can believe that.

  24. These meth things make my handful of bad experiences with an addict seem silly depite me being terrified at the time or just really sad. My friends birth mother cursed us out cause she thought we told my friends guardians(the addicts parents) she stole something. Or taking care of her younger siblings who were usually filthy and one is now 24 and a hot mess and the other is allegedly in a gang and addicted to cocaine. My friend is okay though cause her grandparents weren't neglectful addicts.

  25. I'm 99% convinced that the girl in #45 and #44 are either cousins or sisters

  26. me: eh it's just your normal run off the mil-

  27. Seeing some of these makes me want to start coughing. The ones where they would injure themselves to get more prescription drugs are insane.

  28. 37:54 I googled it, that's incorrect. Feces and urine can not be released in sweat. Because how would it?

  29. Why don't school/parents show this to their kids? I'm 12 and im not e/affected by these at all! 😀

    Reason: not every child is messed up like me

    7:05 no that's what plates go true
    7:07 that's what happens when you smash an couple of wine glasses
    7:08 NO NOT THE CLOCK WHAT TIME IS THIS ¿
    7:14 you have choosen to destroy your kitchen girl

  32. yo does anyone know the name of the song in the boy version of the binge drinking PSA’s?

  33. It's so dumb that this is age-restricted. Drug addiction doesn't just happen to people over 18 so all ages should be able to see it (I know age restrictions don't stop anybody but it's the concept).

  34. Exactly why if I ever break a bone and get prescribed opioids, I WOULDNT TAKE THEM SHITS.
