Drug Czar responsible for teen marijuana use?

The Drug Czar's propaganda ad budget and teen drug use have both declined over the past five years. Is there a connection? You decide.

Controversy makes great advertising! Especially when that controversy has journalists spelling out details about that controversy. Marijuana sellers don't need to advertise. The Drug Czar does that quite effectively with our tax dollars. With less taxpayer dollars available to promote controversy over marijuana use, there is less visibility for product. I'm sure the propaganda for the War on Terror is a goldmine for radical militant groups too. it doesn't help that reality clashes so violently with propaganda either.
