heres a favorite qoute: (it is the profile of one of their (flash animated) sitcom thingy charectors)
"Kenji doesn't take things at face value and always reminds us to do the same thing. His tone is a bit cynical, suspicious. He probes a bit deeper on subjects, even to where it is provocative or, well, even troublesome to school administrators! Say there's a bubble-gum pop band that everyone is crazy over. While most people put up posters of the lead singer or the most obvious person in the band, Kenji would be more impressed with one of the more background member of the bands who he thinks actually has some talent."
and heres some qoutes from their absurdly moderated "message board": (the first one is their board policy)
"If you are in middle school or high school, this site is for you! If you are an adult, there are so many places to discuss the important issues surrounding drug use and abuse on the Internet - leave these boards for actual teens.
Freevibe will put up all posts that do not conflict with the guidelines below. All posts are from real teens who have real issues that they want to discuss. The only reason your post wouldn't go up is if:
You blatantly promote the use of substances that are illegal or unhealthy for minors.
You include crude or obscene language-if you can't say it on MTV or UPN or FOX, you shouldn't say it here. Asterisks may be substituted for profanities in otherwise good posts.
Your post contains information that has nothing to do with the topics being discussed--or which doesn't make sense at all.
You promote, suggest violence or slander any social group.
Your post is clearly written by someone beyond Freevibe's age group.
Your post contains e-mail, phone or other contact information. These may be replaced with asterisks.
If there is a post that doesn't fit within these guidelines, it is up to the moderator to use his or her best judgment based on their training.
Many messages contain rumors and other misleading info. In these cases, the Freevibe board moderator will post the message but also add our two cents with:
Facts taken directly from the "Lowdown" area, with the URL provided.
Information taken directly from the National Institute on Drug Abuse or another reliable source, with either a specific acknowledgement or the URL provided.
We will always sign our posts "Freevibe", so you'll know it's from the moderator.
Messages will be kept on the message board for 60 days. "
heres some wonderful posts by "kids" (some seem too utterly absurd to really be kids, but meh):
"KCFan#1 -- My dad is a counselor and i was asking him questions about cocaine and he told me that he had a client that was going through withdrawls from cocaine and the guy said " It feels like there are millions of spiders running around inside his body" Now after hearing that who would want to try that nasty stuff!
"mariah -- i heard that using cocaine, while pregnant, can cause the child to be born with no conscience????? is this true?
these are from the "how to say no" section:
"braz -- my message is simple,just say NO!"
"Lisa -- I say no because it just not right. And pluse if you do it you can get sick and die from it. And I think it is wrong wrong wrong! ! ! !"
also, alot of the information is just plain wrong, heres a qoute of that type::
"Txoxtxsxe -- hey, i want to explain my nickname real quick so you aren't confused. I put a bunch of random letters and 4 x's in between each one to symbolize what drugs do 2 u. They make your thoughts so weird and random and they cut out braincells. hence the x's. my story is pretty scary. my brother started doing drugs one day with his friend when he was 12. they smoked catnip and then ate nutmeg. he came home and we were really scared but he was okay. What really scared us was the first time he tried pot. he had 5 whole joints and when he came home he was turning a blueish color and developing rash's all over him. We rushed him to the hospital. turns out it was laced with something called shrooms and he had overdosed on that and weed. he died the next day. This is what weed did to my brother. its not a safe drug don't believe what they say!! or you could die like him!"
alright, so the main thing is that (how the fuck) did the marijuana get "laced with something called shrooms" this post sounds completely false, but the moderators did not comment on it at all, another thing:: philocybin, the active psychoactive alkaloid in shrooms, CANNOT be smoked, as it is destroyed by high levels of heat... there is no way that you can have any effect from smoked philocybin mushrooms... anyway
so i think everyone should at least check this site out, its insanely absurd, i would really love to flood their emails and faxes and whatever, completely mess with them, if anyone has expieriance with things like that, post, i think we should totally mess this site up. examples: (at least juvinile stuff like) adding their emails to porn mailing lists, and trolling their "message boards" i would higly love to do more advanced stuff though..
so my main problem with this site is that there is no discussion, (they never even leave any possibility that maybe there is something to be discussed (its just: "just say NO!)) theres plenty of great drug sites on the web (my favorite being erowid.org) that dont even really encourage drug use, but they at least provide for a place where there is real information and discussion... this is just propoganda and needs to be hinderred (like all of the drug war).
