    Drug Addiction on TV/Films/Music

    Post by ainekav on Fri Dec 02, 2011 6:57 am

    Is drug use portrayed accurately on TV/in Films/in Music?

    Is it glamourised?


    Here are some examples:

    Lethal Dialect - an Irish Rapper:



    Drug Dealing in Love/Hate:

    Between the Canals:




    Does anyone else have other examples of good/bad depictions of drug addiction, or even Dublin City life in Tv/film/music?

    Showing or selling the drugs on TV is really very bad. Instead of that make the people aware of drug addiction with the help of TV and other media sources. It should be banned to show the ads of drugs on TV.
