Storyline

This week's show focuses on a recent Supreme Court decision that Baltimore has the right to ban street advertisements for alcohol and cigarettes. 3rd Rock from the Sun actor French Stewart, a smoker, disagrees with too much government control over alcohol and tobacco and thinks that parents should teach their kids to be responsible and leave adults alone to do what they want. Joseph Califano, the chairman of The National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuse at Columbia University, supports limiting advertising and accessibility of alcohol and tobacco, because the kids will then be less influenced by it. Men Behaving Badly actress Jenica Bergere believes that no matter what, kids will experiment and make mistakes and the only way to help them is to support them when they need help, not just ban things they might abuse. Finally, Star Trek: Voyager actress Kate Mulgrew is against bans, but is also deeply worried about the effectiveness of parenting in a world where kids are constantly... Written by Anonymus
