Snowman frosts authorities

Well here's a tempest in a teapot.
Anti-drug campaigners and education officials are alarmed, saying the T-shirt and others like it are part of sophisticated marketing campaigns using coded symbols for drug culture that parents and teachers are not likely to understand. Some schools are banning kids from wearing the snowman images.
Give me a break. It's just a shirt - a fad - that will die down in time but go ahead and ban it. Like that's going to stop kids from using drugs.

The really sad part is, a kid could wear the shirt to look cool without actually taking any drugs. Without the symbolic gesture, he's more likely to be pressured into using drugs to prove his coolness.
