ILLEGAL DRUG USE!
SEZ: As federal, state and local governments spend billions of dollars on
drug interdiction programs at our boarders and anti-drug programs in our
schools, we have Howard Stern boasting of his drug habits.
We have state governors such as Gov. Whitman of New Jersey and Gov. George
Pataki of New York who support Mr. Stern and, thereby, his drug use.
We have United States Senators such as Al D'Amato of New York and Torticelli
of New Jersey who support Mr. Stern and, thereby, his drug use.
We also have a government agency, the FCC, that allows Stern to broadcast
his drug use to millions of children, everyday!
Is there any wonder that we have a drug problem in this country?
The government takes your taxes to fight drugs and the government allows
Stern to broadcast a "drugs are cool" message five days a week.
Is it just me or is there something wrong with that scenario?
It is merely a reflection of our society when the Federal Communications
Commission (each Commissioner appointed by Mr. Clinton) allows an asshole
like this guy to use our public airwaves to promote illegal drug use to our
Here's a few of Stern's pro-drug announcements.
Dateline February 11, 1997
This morning, in an
interview with members of the rock group 'Aerosmith', Howard Stern
admitted his use of illegal drugs.
Stern: "I fell off the wagon recently."
Stern: "I hadn't done any drugs in a really long time and then I started smoking
Stern: "Well I'll tell ya', what happened with me is, uh, you know,
I figured, well it's been like 20 years since I smoked weed
and weed was not very powerful back then.
I remember you could smoke bales of it and ...
(interrupted by sidekick, Robin Quivers)
Robin Quivers (laughing): What are you doing telling them it's better now for,
what are you trying to do?"
Stern (excitedly): "Better? It's out of control!" "I took a few hits on this
thing and I was like, I was like,
it was like doing acid again. I was like hallucinating, it's so strong. I don't
know what they put in this stuff.
They say they grow it . . . Jackie what do they do . . .
they grow it with what?"
Jackie Martling: "Hydroponics."
Stern: "Hydroponics! I got to get into this."
What is Going on Here?
CBS Radio President, Mel Karmazin should remove this garbage from the airwaves.
Every member of the media should be calling for this anti-American, God-hating,
reprobate to be blackballed from radio!
By CBS's own admission, Mr. Stern's program reaches more than
18 million listeners a day.
Given such huge numbers of listeners, it is not unreasonable to believe that
impressionable youngsters in Stern's audience.
If only one percent of Stern's audience is under the age of 17, that's
180,000 impressionable young people
who may be influenced by Stern's glorification of the use of illegal drugs.
Every study done on drug addiction cites marijuana as the
initial drug of experimentation and the 'gateway' drug to heroin and cocaine.
By broadcasting Mr. Stern's glorification of drugs,
CBS has acted irresponsibly and has done more to promote drug use by our
children than any Columbian cartel.
Does Howard Stern's radio program influence people?
You bet he does!
Well, if not, then why do companies like
Toyota, Warner Lambert and Heineken
spend their money to advertise on Stern's program?
The answer is, yes! Stern does influence people.
It is not an arguable point that youngsters are influenced by the actions
of celebrities like Howard Stern.
It is also not an arguable point that
Mr. Stern has glorified the use of illegal drugs.
Just eight days after admitting his use of marijuana, Stern says:
"Is heroin a great drug

Comments From Stern
Employee, 'Sutterin' John':
"First of all, Jackie
(Jackie 'The Jokeman' Martling) was also smoking."
"My friends had $40 worth of stuff"
"I was smoking pot my friends weren't"
"Do you want me to call him and say it was me smoking?"
"I'm a schmuck and I shouldn't have smoked weed by the pool."

SJ: 'Stutterin' John'
HS: Howard Stern
SJ: "Hey Howard, did you talk about what scene (Private Parts movie)
you were stoned in?"
HS: "Not yet."
SJ: "Can I take my guess? Was it the scene with Carol Ault?"
HS (in a kidding tone): "I was so bored in my trailer that I had a couple of
SJ: "Oh, so you didn't smoke?"
HS: "Well (long pause), you figure it out. So, I'm just saying that I was high."
"Watch it while you are stoned, watch it while you are drunk, watch it
while you are on 'Ludes."
(Even though the movie
is 'R' rated, Stern also told kids to skip school and go see it.)
Howard Stern admits
his drug use, tells his listeners to use drugs,
and tells our children to skip school to go see his movie!
We spend billions of dollars a year telling our children to "Just Say No" to
and to keep them in school.
The Federal Communications Commission continues to allow Stern's pro-drug
message to be broadcast directly o children.
Why does the FCC do that?
