If you shoot drugs, stay away from me, 1980s
Aimed at mothers, this poster presented a woman with her children offering a stern warning to potential partners not to shoot drugs and they would need to wear a condom. She made the claim that no man was worth her health or the health of her children.

Aimed at a variety of audiences, these posters attempted to call attention to the inherent risk posed by drug use even though the copy provided no details about the danger. While one poster targeted men directly and the other used women as a way to reach men, each used a similar message and lack of instruction.
