I hope I'm putting this in the right forum because I like this commercial. There's a new ad, I'm not sure if it's local, for some kind of home drug test that is cracking me up. When it starts out, you think it's going to be a PSA, because it starts out with a mom asking her son if he does drugs. Of course he says no. Then the mom starts rattling off a list of every drug name you can think of, and probably some she made up, and the teenage boy keeps saying no. Then the announcer starts advertising the drug test with cuts of the mom and boy going back and forth. Absolutely hillarious.

I've just heard it twice, but I'm sure WSM will play it to death. They tend to do that, but I have satellite radio, so I can switch if they start getting annoying.

For the 1st 20 times I did laugh when the mom used the term "Disco Biscuits". I'm not sure if it's a real term for drugs but I think it sounds pretty funny.

Ah, the "home drug test"...the single most-effective way to alienate your children with the most effective means of humiliation. Not only to they despise you for continually invading their privacy with unfounded accusations, now you can sink the final nail in the coffin of any relationship with your children by demanding that they submit to a drug test. How better a way can one find to make them start using drugs as soon as they are out of the house! At least this will drive them to alcohol instead, which is better because it's not an illegal drug, right?

And we wonder where children like the shooters at "Columbine" come from....Serial killers aren't born, they are made, and this is an ideal tool to get the ball rolling in that direction. I find no humor in that. None at all.

The most morally-centered use for these tests if to see if you will pass a drug test from your job. Using this as a "patch-kit" for your parenting skills is not a solution.

Hear, Hear! If my parents had ever done this to me, I would had been so angry and humiliated. Parents need to LEARN TO PARENT instead of relying on drug tests, V-Chips, GPS-tracking cell phones, and all that crap. My parents didn't use any of that and I turned out pretty well. It's just laziness.

If parents suspect that their kid is into drugs and alcohol, they should use the test to verify/allay their suspicions.  Whether it pleases the kid or not, is of little importance.

Yeah because how did parents keep their kids from doing drugs for all those hundreds of years before we had a home drug test? If a kid's going to use drugs, they're going to do it. If not when they're home, they'll wait until they are living alone and bitter from the prison that was their parents' house and probably take massive amounts of drugs just to spite them.

Communication is what keeps kids off of drugs, not threats of being tested.

Duffin, drug use is a relatively new phenomenon.  Sure, there were always drugs, but it wasn't until the 1960's that they started to become a serious societal problem.
 
Communication is not always the problem.  Kids are always going to see what they can get away with, and will probably experiment with some things.  Most kids get through it, but many get carried away.  Try to look at it from a parent's viewpoint.  What would you do if you see your kid going downhill?  Do you just throw up your hands and say "Oh I was a bad parent, and there's nothing I can do now".  Parenting doesn't end when your kid turns 13.

C'mon! 'Peer Pressure' has a bit to do with kids getting into drugs.
'Communication', of course, is critical - but it will not stop a bad decision.
We cannot eliminate temptation; we CAN 'eliminate' the providers (so as to structure society as we believe it should be). Sure - we can, and should without regret, 'remove' those that do no more than live to feed off of the weakness, or ignorance, of their fellow man. Hopefully, I do not need to explain that.
People screw up; not EVERYONE is a 'LEADER'; many are destined to be 'followers'; 'lemmings' - human nature comes into play and no matter how very hard we may try, no matter what we, as parents may do...our kids will make their own decisions. They will find SOMETHING to 'fill in the blanks'. Guess I call it "Life" - we all have lived it; no choice! We too were once kids - we had our own temptations and evils - we made our own choices. Some of us were not 'sheltered' - yet, were 'raised right' and possibly even made our very own mistakes. At least we recognize our mistakes. Maybe we need help in recognizing theirs...maybe we're not as good as we used to be at knowing if the next person we see, we talk to, is currently in an 'altered state'.
Maybe we ourselves, are a tad "Drain Bamaged"...
I've got nothing against the ad.

I think it would be more accurate to say drug "abuse" is a fairly new phenomenon as every culture has had its share of drug use, usually for spiritual purposes, going back hundreds of years.
Anyway, what would I do? Come up with something that wouldn't alienate my child further for me by subjecting them to a home drug test. I'm not a parent, so I don't know WHAT I would do, but think about this: if your kid IS using drugs...what good is a drug test going to do, really? If you suspect them of doing it, knowing for certain isn't going to change anything. If they're that far downhill that you can't simply talk to them about it, then a drug test isn't going to do a damn thing. They'll be liable to just run away from home or worse at that point.
And if it turns out they're NOT using drugs, then you've just humiliated and angered your child for no reason.

I agree.  If not the home drug test, take them to the family physician and get blood work done.

 LOLHOOOORSESSSSSHIIT, WILBUR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
 
I guess 'Opium Dens' just were not a problem, now were they? LOL
 
That is simply so very wrong, Thor - and YOU know it!...or, well, I guess you can get a 'Pass' should you have forgotten about "White Slavery". Anyone understand the term 'Shanghaied'? Maybe anyone from Seattle or San Francisco? And that is only the FIRST example that comes to mind...often had something to do with drugs & booze, I THINK!

Actually the kid sounds high while she's drilling him! "No...no...no...what? Maybe... I mean 'no'!"
 
And my favorites are the "Carnival Barker Bumper Blips" and "Shabu-Shabu" (sp?).

I've never heard it, but it sounds like the famous "Rabbit Season / Duck Season" routine in the Looney Tunes, where you can easily trick someone into saying either yes or no. And maybe that's exactly what could happen in a conversation like that. By the time the parent got to the 10th or so drug n the list, they might get a "yes" when it isn't even true!

Sounds to me that the mother must have been a real party girl if she knows the names of all those drugs.

My mother tried to make me take a drug test when i was 17 because I was in a deep state of depression and she didn't know what was wrong. I told her to F off and didn't talk to her for atleast 3 weeks. I didn't even do drugs at the time but a month later I was smoking weed just to piss her off.... The best anti-depressant on earth. Oh I was so rebellious back in the day.

I credit the D.A.R.E. program in elementary school and health class from middle and high school for keeping me away from alcohol abuse and drugs!

TO THIS DAY I have not smoked, injected, inhaled, ANY illegal drugs OR abuse ANY alcohol.

I know THE RISKS!!!! I DON'T wanna tempt them.

Pretty much the opposite occurred over here; the programme was such a stupid and contrived theatrically over-the-top appeal-to-youth that I could never take it seriously. And then, when you got into the side of things where the kids a year or two above could pretty much answer questions better than any of the videos/handouts/travelling speakers and point out all the wrong stuff in the presentations, it became even moreso.

I'll partake of weed if someone I'm with has some to spare and offers it, but I don't see much to it and don't really feel any need or desire to go seeking it out. As for the harder stuff, as one of my favourite teachers said, it's not so much any issue with the drug itself (because those are relatively rare, often) but rather the fact that some 12 year old is making this stuff in their basement rather than some properly trained person who knows chemistry and science and such. Why even sample when it'll be 80% baby powder, fertilizer and clearisil?

As for the idea that drug use/abuse is relatively new...I'd say hardly. We had cocaine herion and morphine and the like available like bubblegum is today. There was the huge social crisis with opium. Addiction as a treatable illness was something that came about in the 60's, but addiction itself was recognized in some form for decades, even centuries before. The only difference is that in those times they were seen as weak-willed, sinners, demonically possessed, or whatever variant best suited.

Welcome to the forum.
Considering KEYBOARDPLAYER started this thread in 2009, 7 years ago.
Has not visited the site since 12/2012, a response from that member is not likely.

Actually looking back, it wasn't exactly due to the D.A.R.E. program it was the horror stories of people doing drugs, and what it did to their bodies. I would concur that it was THAT not the D.A.R.E. program. It was misinterpreting of my memories.
