I find it difficult to rate the Neurotically Yours cartoon, Drugs in Your Head. The old me would have given this a high score, but who I am now strongly disagrees with rhetoric in this cartoon. Sometimes we become the type of people we used to mock as kids. It's a sign we threw away a lot of old values. That's both good and bad. Some of my old beliefs were terrible. I feel like I am a better person now compared to who I was when I originally watched this cartoon.
Drugs in Your Head is a reminder of my old self. When the original flash cartoon first came out, I shared it on a bunch of forums and a lot of people I knew on a Ratchet & Clank clan forum thought this was a funny rant. So I have positive memories attached to this specific episode because of the timing of its original release. It was also more impressive as a flash cartoon in 2005 than it is a video in 2020. I can't rate the original flash cartoon here anymore, so I can only rate it as a video.
When this came out in 2005, I was a fifteen year old boy against drugs and thought this rant was hilarious. Now I'm a 31 year old man reliant on CBD oil because it's the only medication effective for the 24/7 migraine I have suffered with since 2009. The rhetoric in this cartoon used to be funny to me, but it aged poorly. There are a lot of benefits to medical marijuana. It helps with my pain, sleep, and depression issues. I'm glad both medical and recreational marijuana are legal in California.
One agreement I do have with Foamy the Squirrel is that many people are hypocrites about prescription drugs. When doctors experimented on me with prescriptions, it messed me up far worse than alcohol and weed ever did to my life. A lot of prescription drugs are dangerous, especially Topirimate (AKA Topamax). If a doctor ever recommends it, do not take that drug. It is a drug known to cause permanent memory loss and brain damage. I was never the same after taking that drug.
So yeah, Drugs in Your Head. I give a 3/5. A lot of the messaging and animation is bad, but it's not a bad cartoon. It's an entertaining video that is reflective of popular opinion from 2005. Despite how bad everything is right now, I'm glad we no longer live in the Bush years. I do not want to return to an America that is against weed. It should be legal in all 50 states and Washington, DC.
