Government Turns to YouTube to Stop Drug Use
LYNN NEARY, host:
Good morning. I'm Lynn Neary.
YouTube, the popular Web site where personal videos can make stars out of the likes of Lonely Girl, will be put to more serious use by the Bush administration. The Office of National Drug Control Policy today is expected to announce it will begin posting anti-drug messages on YouTube. The campaign will be competing with thousands of other video clips, including at least one that gives step-by-step instructions on how to grow marijuana. This is MORNING EDITION.
