Presents the analyses and viewpoints of prevention and communications experts on how qmixed messagesq are often sent to American youth regarding acceptable use of alcohol and other drugs. Analyzes public and private sector policies, practices, and regulatory initiatives aimed at reducing and eliminating alcohol and other drug problems.To begin asking the right questions about how the mass media bear on drug use in America, we must first consider what drugs ... today that the mass media, immensely pervasive and at least frequently persuasive, have some bearing on drug use. I intend in this essay to suggest a framework for examining this question.
