Advertising: Republicans want anti drug campaign funds diverted to Katrina relief

The Republican Study Committee wants to cut funding for anti-drug campaign advertising so that they can be diverted to help pay for damage caused by Katrina.

They claim that, "There is no solid evidence that media campaigns are effective in either preventing or reducing the use of illegal drugs." They urge the Bush administration to abolish such programs and save $1.3 billion dollars over a ten year period.

I have a suggestion that will save much more than $1.3 billion and a lot more lives - of course it wouldn't be so profitable.
