The U.S. Navy's New Anti-Bath Salts Campaign Warns Against 'Demons'

Demons show up in the dramatic re-enactment of a user’s death in the video, and then again in a short discussion of the drug by Lt. George Loeffler of the Naval Medical centre in San Diego.

It’s middle-school level stuff. (For comparison, the current gold-standard in anti-drug advertising is’s harrowing “New faces of Meth” infographic, which will haunt your dreams for days.)
