The History of Anti-Drug PSAs


Michael Ludwig, a professor in the School of Education and director of the Health Education program, was quoted in a piece by Marketplace, a platform that produces public service programming.

The piece, entitled “From cringeworthy to scary: a history of anti-drug PSAs,” analyzed the evolution of anti-drug PSAs in America. Professor Ludwig noted in the piece that although these efforts aimed to discourage drug use, “When you advertise against it, you may also be inadvertently advertising for it.”
