I'm dismayed by the rampant drug use and its related advertising campaigns. My cousin's son recently committed suicide after taking these drugs. I would like to see all advertising stopped.

There is an ad for Paxel in which a depressed looking actor states: "When I'm at home I worry about work and when I'm at work I worry about home." Who doesn't? For this, for life, you need drugs? Why not just allow people to smoke marijuana? We have a "War on Drugs" yet we push them on television. Does anyone see the irony and illogic in this?
