This is the old ‘post hoc ergo propter hoc’ thing that I’ve always found idiotic. Wouldn’t, say, milk be just as suspect?
And if everyone who smoked pot ended up on heroin, wouldn’t there be millions and millions of heroin addicts everywhere?
Finally, lets not forget that Heroin was a trademark and branding effort from Bayer: it made the user ‘feel heroic.’ So, who is the instigator?
She later changed her name to “Janice” and was last seen studying for the CPA exam.
Per the opening credits, this one was done with assistance of Inglewood PD and Inglewood Unified School District.

You might enjoy this spoof.
If they want to be effective in their scare campaigns, they should put that as the last frame in the faces of meth PSAs.
In honor of Papasan; I’m getting high right now!
“… lost to society…”
So, like, Society isn’t going to do anything to help Jeanette out of her bind? Sounds about par for the course.
How much do we love Eric’s pedal-pushers, and the heroin stash he keeps in the hamster cage?
Jeebus that’s a slippery slope.
ETA: You can tell Frank is a prevert because he never takes off those tea shades.
He keeps the scag in the bird cage.
He keeps the meth in the hamster cage.
Whatever became of Papasan?
It’s eating away at me: Who played Jeanette and whatever happened to her?
