Every time I see commercials from this quite pompously named organization, I find myself wondering who's paying for it? Commercials during TRL
are prime advertising real estate for those seeking to target the teen demographic, and likely carry a hefty premium on airtime. They're not marked as public service announcements
payed for by the station, so somebody must actually be shelling out the money.
Remember that most of the money for the Partnership for a Drug Free America
is comming from alcohol and tobacco companies, with the understanding that if people are restricted from buying "bad" drugs, they'll be forced into spending their money on the socially acceptable ones. I just can't visualize any organization recieving an equivalent benefit from a reduction in smoking, save the RIAA
who would benefit from kids having some extra money to buy the next N'Sync
