Next week is Drug Facts Week, an event organized by NIDA supposedly to promote facts, but in actuality more to promote propaganda.
So we have our own counter version at DrugWarFacts.com, which I’ve been advertising on Google (as well as on this site), and it’s gotten some pretty good hits, particularly lately. To take a page from their social marketing plans, I plan on doing some tweeting and facebooking of drug facts and getting others to do so during this week.
Give me your best facts. Real facts. Both drug facts and drug war facts. Ideally, these should be 98 characters or less including spaces (in order to tweet it and provide the appropriate link and hashtag). Short and sweet.
Examples (you don’t have to give me the character count — these are just to give you an idea of the approximate length you should aim for):
Fact: Most marijuana users never use any other illicit drug. What gateway? (74 characters)
The largest study (by NIDA) showed no increased risk of cancer for even heavy marijuana smokers. (97 characters)
Update: Give me a source link, when possible. I’m going to list these at the drug facts site and have links to the sources of info.
