A brand new anti-drug ad campaign by the South Dakota government has the tagline: "Meth". A press release for the campaign said it uses "impactful, even shocking" images of South Dakotans to try to communicate that meth should be tackled by everyone.
One Twitter user posted: 'Surprising anti-meth campaign in South Dakota. "This is our problem, and together, we need to get on it".
The inform's Division of Social Providers paid Minneapolis-basically based marketing and advert company Broadhead Co. close to $449,000 to execute the campaign, basically based on the Sioux Falls Argus Leader. "Great way to portray South Dakota", one person commented.
"Meth. We're on it" is rolling out with TV commercials and billboards in which people say, "I'm on meth".
"We are looking for a way that would cause the citizens to stop, pay attention and understand that we do have a meth issue and that there are resources available", she said. "It impacts every community in our state and it threatens the success of the next generation". Kristi Noem launched a program to bring attention to the problem of methamphetamine abuse in the Mount Rushmore State, and the slogan couldn't help but draw comments.
One moment of national embarrassment might cause a state to triple check that its four-word slogans express the public-health idea they're meant to convey - and only that idea.
Most responses have ridiculed the campaign, noting that it insinuates that the whole state is on the drug.
