Both sides of weed

Posted by Tatjana Vukic | 8-02-2012 19:00 | Category: Drugs, Education, Health



A masterpiece from McCann Digital, Tel Aviv: after the “drugs set your timeline” campaign that focused on hard drugs prevention - here’s a new one for the israeli anti drug authority, this time on Weed effects.

In 3 interactive videos, they showed young people talking about marijuana as a deadly drug, and telling it’s the best thing that ever happened to them.
Teen audience can switch freely between the two offered solutions, watch the stories of drug addicts and realize that none of them are actually true, and learn about the real effects of smoking weed.
Take a look here the great interactive page and find out the truth about the Weed http://www.grass-truth.co.il/indexEn.asp

more after the break.


This interactive trip through histerical laughing (btw, great casting!), depressive and dark moments ... the viewer of the page can watch all the nuances of drug effect and also the ridiculous arguments of the drug addicts.

But the message is clear:

Marijuana w o n ’ t cause mental paralysis, but will affect your coordination and your sports aactivities.

Marijuana w o n ’ t turn you into a junkie, but will become a drug you depend on.

Marijuana w o n ’ t erase your memory, but it will cause problems with concentration and attention.

Marijuana w o n ’ t make you lose all your friends, but you probably won’t want to be around those who don’t smoke.

Marijuana w i l l   make you funnier, but mostly to yourselves.

Marijuana - know what you’re getting into.

And one line as the cherry on the top of the cake from me:

Marijuana - Rany Shamloul’s recent review of the medical literature on cannabis use and sexual health has revealed that cannabis use may negatively impact male sexual performance.

More fun - More Impotent.

Think about long-term effects before rolling a joint.

Comments about Both sides of weed

the negative side is all the people who wanted to try because they didn’t know about the side effects of heroin or cocaine or crack and it fucked up their life, and the people high are just people who got curious and tried smoking weed. i smoke weed but i grew up around crackheads and heroin addicts so i haven’t even considered smoking crack or shooting heroin, just weed for me

Is this eating disorder ad too sexy?

It’s a serious question. This woman has the typical idealized body of a model, and despite the scary body painting, the portrayal is undeniably drawing attention to her curves and bare skin. When I think about eating disorders, I try to imagine looking in the mirror and seeing a funhouse…
