I am above:

On the drug czar’s “blog” they talk about an “Above the Influence” workshop with the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA), where youth engaged in a “tag-it” campaign.

In this workshop, they had pieces of paper with “I am above:” and participants added their own anti-drug message.

Here are a couple of examples:

Well, I decided that we could play that game, too…

Why don’t you play along as well? Add your own version in comments, or create your own from this blank and send it to me. I’ll add some of the best ones to this post.

CADCA, by the way, can get pretty ridiculous. On their facebook page, they’re asking people to phone in to Mars Candy and complain about a Twix ad that they say show police officers abusing inhalants. All it is is a silly ad involving helium balloons. What’s next? Complaining about images of people drinking coffee abusing caffeine?

[Thanks, Tom and Tom]

    I suggest you make a permanent page dedicated to listing these, Pete.

    There should be two sections representing each perspective:

    1. Drug prohibitionist applying “I am above…” (i.e. the sarcastic ones, like those I posted above)

    2. People in our movement applying “I am above…”
