The Montana Meth Project is sponsoring a new series of anti-drug advertisements designed to inform — and perhaps to scare — kids about the dangers of methamphetamine use.

After the state released a series of graphic radio and TV ads, the commercials soon ranked in the Top 20 on AdCritic.com, an advertising industry Web site. The campaign also includes print advertisements and billboards.
