Peer Pressure

I really think that the America Online commercials, in which people offer testimonials such as “All my friends are on it!” and “It’s the best way to stay in touch!” and “It brings the whole world right into your home!” would be much cooler if they were about mind-altering drugs. Then we’d all be able to spot the peer pressure for what it really is. . . I mean, c’mon–everyone else is doing it. It’s good to know that drug abuse resistance education is making money for someone.
