A Psychedelic Anti-Marijuana PSA for Kids (1988)

Everything is Terrible has posted this clip titled I’m Here Find Me which is a psychedelic anti-marijuana PSA from the drug abuse prevention video for kids called Fast Forward Future. According to Yahoo! Movies, Richard Kiley is the voice of Mentor “who takes kids to the future in his “Fast Forward” machine to see the effects of drug abuse”.

“I’m inside you.”

From the Teacher’s Guide (pdf):

This series, funded by a grant from the U.S. Department to Education, is designed to discourage students from experimenting with illegal drugs by training students in personal and social skills, such as problem-solving, refusal, and coping with stress. The series follows Maggie, Zack, and Casey who have their share of big and small problems that they don’t know how to handle. The Fast Forward Future Machine and the mysterious electronic Mentor (played by Richard Kiley) help each of the three explore the nature of their problems and the past effects or possible future effects of decisions they have made or can make. The Machine can “pause” for insights about people and problems, call up a “Drug Facts File” which provides objective information to aid decision-making, or provide a “Helper File” of adults they can ask for support.
