The Healthy Communities Coalition, along with its local partners, has announced a community information campaign to stop youth over-the-counter (OTC) cough medicine abuse.
Yes because only young kids abuse a drug that has been recreationally used for decades.

The campaign--"Stop Medicine Abuse"--stems from a national cough medicine abuse education initiative, 'A Dose of Prevention: Stopping Cough Medicine Abuse Before It Starts,' sponsored by the Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) and the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA).
Sponsored by a company that represents the makers of these OTC products? Why do I sense the children's "safety" are not the big interest in this campaign...

The local "Stop Medicine Abuse" campaign will include distribution of brochures, posters, bookmarks, and fact sheets to all schools, libraries, health care sites, clubs, and businesses that would like to have the materials.
Let's just make the drug more known so more kids will do it. That will work.

that's one out of 10 kids nationwide
Huh, they never asked me about it.

At these extreme doses, side effects can be dangerous, including hallucinations, heart problems, vomiting, seizures, and even loss of consciousness.
Claims without citations? Never!

"We know from prior experience that education is the most effective way to keep kids from abusing all types of substances, including over the counter (OTC) medicines," said Quest Lakes of the Healthy Communities Coalition.
How 'bout honest education?

"As a community, we want to safeguard our young people against substance abuse," said General Arthur Dean, Executive Director and CEO of CADCA.
Oooo save the children from this scourge! That they are willingly doing to themselves?

"While children make up only 25 percent of our national population, they represent 100 percent of our future."
Not if natural selection has something to say about that.
