California Senator Dianne Feinstein Has Hot New Idea For Drug War: ‘Just Say No’

by Rebecca Schoenkopf

This is your brain on drugs. Order up!California Senator and world’s greatest Democrat Dianne Feinstein has done some creative thinking on the scourge that is Drugs, and she has some terrific ideas that are fresh and new and “outside-the-box” and other fresh and new ways of saying “outside the box”! What is her first great idea? Moar Drug War please!

We must pull back the curtains on the false debate between legalizing drugs and current drug policy. [...] Latin-American leaders are rightly outraged that their citizens continue to suffer because of America’s drug habits.

Except that they would all like us to legalize drugs, because when’s the last time you saw Bartles kill Jaymes with a machete? (The answer, for our slower friends and Sen. Feinstein is: during Prohibition.) But what other creative thinking has Feinstein done? She would like to spend hundreds of millions of dollars again on those stupid “This Is Your Brain on Drugs” commercials that launched a million novelty tees! Because having 40 million children laugh at you while baked is total Feinsteinian SUCCESS!

First, we should once again make anti-drug campaigns a priority. In the early 1980s, former first lady Nancy Reagan coined the now-famous slogan “Just say no” as part of her national anti-drug campaign.

Although her strategy was criticized, she was able to use the White House as a national platform to address these issues.

Next, Congress should refund the Office of National Drug Control Policy’s youth media campaign — the only national media campaign dedicated to reducing youth drug use. Funding for this program was eliminated last year in spite of the fact that 85 percent of teens are aware of the advertising campaign.

This campaign should be provided with the funding it deserves and expanded to make the connection between U.S. drug use and violence in Mexico.

Finally, we can invest in probation programs that allow for random drug testing for probationers and swift sanctions when those tests are positive. There is no better way to reduce criminal recidivism.

Drug test everyone! More propaganda muneez for ONDCP! And bring back the universally mocked, loathed and discredited Just Say No! Get used to it, California. Dianne Feinstein is our “Democrat,” and she will never die, and we will keep reelecting her and wheeling her into the US Senate when she is 150, like Strom Thurmond, and Jenna Bush is president of the Confederacy (which will be all of us, since we will have lost the Great Tea Party War of 2019, because we are hippies and don’t have guns). Hooray! [TheHill]

OneYieldRegular May 3, 2012 at 1:30 pm

I used to work for a large, multi-center drug treatment study. One of the techs showed me a PET scan of a long-term crack cocaine addict's brain. It was a sort of irregular, crumpled mass huddled over in one corner of the inside of the skull. I asked why that image wasn't used to replace the fried eggs in the "This is your brain on drugs" commercial, and he was all like, "Oh come on, you don't think this 'war on drugs' is serious, do you?"

Barb May 3, 2012 at 11:01 am

"Latin-American leaders are rightly outraged that their citizens continue to suffer because of America’s drug habits."

and some peanut m & m's and peanut butter cups, and snickers bars and cool ranch doritos please.

Seriously wft Diane. Drug prohibition is an EPIC fail. Legalize and tax = deficit go away and I can finally get my neighborhood pharmacy to deliver my "anti-anxiety medication"

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 11:02 am

"Swift sanctions when those tests are positive"

You mean like cutting off their access to medicine and food like in Iraq? (Or just medicinal marijuana?) or putting folks in jail? It's jail isn't it? Cause Cali ain't got enough people riding the lock up train, and Dianne's got some stocks in the private prison game, or what? I'm just asking…

sullivanst May 3, 2012 at 11:12 am

And everybody knows there's no drugs in prison.

And 100% of teens know who Joe Camel is.

I think I only got 15% of that joke.

sullivanst May 3, 2012 at 11:15 am

Yeah, someone should inform Ms. Feinstein that the measure of success of an advertising campaign is not awareness, but conversion.

McGruff the Crime Dog and DARE taught me to be completely paranoid about people around me using any illicit substances, which was awesome when I had a panic attack at an outdoor Tom Petty concert and was afraid I was going to get addicted to the marijuana. That's just one step away from full-blown heroin addiction!

OldWhiteLies May 3, 2012 at 12:06 pm

I have always wondered: Did anyone ever *really* talk like that? Or was this subculture just the fabrication of some wannabe-hipster 80s movie writer?

My oldz is such that I was where I should have experienced first hand this alternate dialect. But all I member was it being used in a mocking sense by my then fellow not-oldz.

I can haz silly 80s wayz to sez tingz?

There was a girl who transferred to my high school from The Valley senior year (81-82). The dialect was like, totally real, fer sure.

Taj_Mahalo May 3, 2012 at 11:24 am

Dianne Feinstein never met civil liberty she didn't like…. to restrict!

Seriously, she's horrible. You'd think a one-party state like California and a hippie libtard outpost like San Francisco would produce a wild-eyed liberal. Instead, we get Joe Lieberman in a dress.

Personally, I blame that asshole who shot Milk and Moscone and gave ol' Dianne the opening to become Mayor of San Francisco. Fuck you very much, Dan White!

Probationers are already subject to random drug testing. I suppose we could quadruple the current number of tests. After all, the full-to-bursting California prison system could really use an influx of potheads.

How about random drug testing of members of Congress? Even better, random IQ tests.

The latter will really scare them.

tessiee May 3, 2012 at 1:28 pm

"After all, the full-to-bursting California prison system could really use an influx of potheads."

also, I understand that California has ass loads of money in their budget, so I'm sure they could spare a few million for something not at all pointless.

iburl May 3, 2012 at 11:24 am

"make the connection between U.S. drug use and violence in Mexico."

Oh, let me make it….

The drugs are illegal, so violent gangs control everything involved.

Nancy Reagan coined the now-famous slogan “Just say no”

She was actually talking about how to help the homeless.

Sadly her husband didn't take her advice and spent his time in the White House on acid 24×7.

Today's Repubicans certainly learned from her.

vodkamuppet May 3, 2012 at 11:58 am

Shiiiiit, D.A.R.E. was where I first learned about the really good stuff. Growing up in a neighborhood full of crackheads kept me off crack, D.A.R.E. had nothing to do with it.

prommie May 3, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Yes, it is true, Dare has repeatedly been shown to be not merely ineffective, but counterproductive. But it is a necessary program, as it funds the placement of police officers in schools where they have easy access to underage girls.

Or something like that. I may have been pretty baked at the time…

It seems the most reliable way to make some phenomenon a permanent part of our culture is to declare war on it. Poverty, drugs, terror, what a great track record of wars we have.

I don't know how you tell the little fuckers running around cracked out on Adderall not to do drugs anyway. Just say no to SOME drugs, some drugs you have to take – for school.

prommie May 3, 2012 at 12:06 pm

Don't you be knocking the adderall, baby. I just jammed out a 6-page issue paper, and one that actually cites to facts and law. Then at night, my doc wrote me up for some downers, too. So I am living like Elvis, all totes legal, better living through chemicals.

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 12:13 pm

I'm more of a low rent Elvis most days, all caffeine and benedryl, BUT I appreciate Adderall to be sure. My house is never cleaner and I am never thinner – I just fear the heart attack monster so I can't do it a lot – I can get it just from talking to any medical professional for five minutes though – we are a spazz outloud sometimes, imagine. My dad's words of wisdom as I smiled at him thru a xanax and champagne haze were "better living thru chemistry, kid" right before I walked down the aisle. (which as you know, makes my episcopalian marriage void if they REALLY held you to the "don't do this intoxicated" sacrament thing)

ifthethunderdontgetya May 3, 2012 at 11:37 am

Dianne Feinstein is our “Democrat,”

Exactly, Rebecca.

And in the very same ways, so is "our" President.

They share similar views and policies regarding the "war on drugs", "war on terror", protecting banksters, and making the little people pay for it all.

So why do you think "Bammerz" is your friend?

Uh, wait a sec… flip it around…

"The war on drugs needs to be done away with because if they are legal there won't be any desire for criminals to be involved."
There.

Seriously, every doc I have watched, and particularly the one about BC, Canada – says it is the dealers wanting the shit to stay as illegal as any legislator. All that money money money based purely on the illegality of it all is too much for them to EVER wanna see that shit go legit.

The "D" isn't for "Democrat," but for "Disney."

It's a common mistake.

You go to war with the drugs you have, not with the drugs you wish to have.

In the early 1980s, former first lady Nancy Reagan coined the now-famous slogan “Just say no” as part of her national anti-drug campaign.

And as a result of her successfull, pioneering work, the 1980's are fondly remembered today for the profound absense of drug use during that decade.

Sometimes, your brain dries up, withers, fades and goes insane even without the use of drugs. Just ask Ted Nugent.

This Feinstein woman is clearly ON something. Her hair looks like a 50's Toni home perm, and she speaks very slowly. Could be she's a Merry Prankster playing a L-O-N-G con. Remind me to never move to, or even visit, California.

Summer must be coming. Feinstein's already broadcasting forgettable reruns from the 80s.

Yeah, and that was a real success…not followed by the crack wars or anything at all!

Sigh…

Here's a crazy idea, courtesy of the Nixon Administration: Get the emphasis on treatment. Treat addiction as a medical priority, not a law enforcement priority.

I know, pie-in-the-sky idealism, innit?

Chet Kincaid May 3, 2012 at 1:35 pm

Nixon's was the most Socialist and Criminal Democratic Administration!!11!

When I was a teenager I had a poster on my wall that went thusly from top to bottom:

Pic of empty skillet with caption "This is your brain."

Pic of skillet with scrambled eggs with caption "This is your brain on drugs."

Pic of skillet with scrambled eggs, bacon, and caption "This is your brain with a side order of bacon."

This was in the late eighties – early nineties. Yep, that "Just Say No" campaign sure worked wonders.

Wile E. Quixote May 4, 2012 at 10:10 pm

I had the same thing on a T-shirt.

tessiee May 3, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Say what you want about the "this is your brain on fried eggs" commercial, it's still not as creepy as the commercial with the two animated pieces of cereal licking each other.

GOPCrusher May 3, 2012 at 1:54 pm

You really have to ask yourself, what kind of drugs were these people on to come up with this shit?

Doktor StrangeZoom May 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

In my day, the anti-drug messages scared the shit out of EVERYONE

(Nightmare Fuel Warning: this ad left me, at the age of about 7, afraid to be alone in any room with the TV on.)

"Latin-American leaders are rightly outraged that their citizens continue to suffer because of America’s drug habits"

Are their citizens suffering because most Americans are now too poor to afford drugs, or what?

OneYieldRegular May 3, 2012 at 1:21 pm

Test probationers, and if they test positive, send them back to prison. I do not think that "reduce criminal recidivism" means what DiFi thinks it means.

UW8316154 May 3, 2012 at 1:38 pm

I have eaten shopping bags of fine Pacific Northwest schrooms…and experienced a world made out of tiny little hotdogs, got lost in my bathroom for hours, saw my hand in a completely new and different way, felt the vibrations of peace across all living things, talked with with Trees, and became one with everything. I felt love, peace and the joy of being alive….

But never…never!!…did I ONCE look at an egg and confuse it with my brain….

tessiee May 3, 2012 at 1:39 pm

I'm borrowing here, but some stand-up comedian made the observation that, somewhere along the line, there stopped being any spectrum of opinion on "drugs" — or even any serious research on what "drugs" actually do — and politicians just started trying to outdo each other on how vehemently against "drugs" they were:
Politician 1: I'm against drugs.
Politician 2: I really, really hate drugs a lot.
Politician 3: Not only do I really, really hate drugs a lot, I believe they lead to jazz and dating white women.

owhatever May 3, 2012 at 1:57 pm

I'll post a snark later, because right now I have to go take my Oxy.

keinsignal May 3, 2012 at 2:21 pm

How old is Feinstein, again? She hasn't like gone senile and forgotten she's running in *California*, right?

Beanball May 3, 2012 at 9:35 pm

I keep voting against that bitch and she keeps getting elected.

Tell me again that Californians aren't weird, because I am not convinced.

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 11:39 am

Oh, well, hell that's why God made Xanax.

prommie May 3, 2012 at 12:10 pm

True fact, xanax is notoriously bad for your memory. Hey, did I ever tell you before, Xanax is really bad for your memory. Are you my mommy?

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 12:21 pm

For reals – I know there WAS a summer of 1992, and that I was alive when it occured, but I got nothing.
Now every bitch I know has a bottle of that mother's little helper in her coach bag (my script is currently unfilled, my coach bag just has ibuprophen and cough syrup – yeehaw…we'll see how long that lasts…)

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 12:42 pm

Pull a Louis Black and smoke a cig on NyQuil. It's like a white man's bong.

FakaktaSouth May 3, 2012 at 1:01 pm

I've got old school robitussin with codeine, and I NEVAH wanna smoke cigs (which I quit yrs ago) MORE than when I am on NyQuil (love) or narcotic style cough stoppers – a million nicotine addicted heroine junkies can't be wrong!!!

prommie May 3, 2012 at 1:15 pm

Does it work with percocets?

Chet Kincaid May 3, 2012 at 1:33 pm

It's mostly white men that use bongs.

Fare la Volpe May 3, 2012 at 2:17 pm

Fakakta, I get the feeling you and I could head down to Pensacola beach, sip hurricanes and pop uppers, gawk at the eye candy, and just have a grand ole time together.

sullivanst May 3, 2012 at 5:41 pm

A while ago Mrs. Sulli was channel-surfing and spotted the Priest she liked enough to actually get to church for occasionally before he moved on, on Telecare.

I believe the discussion got around to weight loss, and Jared's name came up. Father Jim declared "I hate that guy. I really do."

I see why my wife liked him ;)
