Ron at parentsofanaddict.blogspot.com alerted me to the new products that Urban Outfitters has come up with. They are about as wonderful as the Olsen twins bag that has pills all over it.
He urged everyone to e mail the CEO firstname.lastname@example.org and let him know what marketing geniuses they are.
Here is my e mail response to him that I wrote before I went to bed and prayed for my son.
I understand that sometimes retailers have to be "on trend" in order to sell
their products. I guess your genius marketing staff thinks that tapping into the
prescription drug abuse trend may be the ticket to great sales and profits. I
just hope you and your marketing idiots can sleep at night knowing that you are
perpetuating the rampant use of prescription drugs of our young people. I will
say a little prayer that you or one of your misinformed lackeys never has to
experience the horror of seeing a young person you love becoming a slave to the
addiction monster. What you see as a marketing tool is a constant reminder to me
that my loved one is in the grips of a profound sickness that people such as
yourself exploit for financial gain, just like drug companies who fund sites
that preach awareness but still profit off those who abuse their product.
Pleasant dreams sir.
