“Say no to drugs. Then again, if you’re talking to drugs, you’re probably on drugs”

"Just Say No (to drugs)” was a public service advertising campaign in the 1980s and 1990s. There have been many jokes about “talking to drugs.” “They said ‘Say no to drugs,’ so I did, but it didn’t have any effect on my aspirin. Strange, really. First they say it’s good to talk to plants, now they want you to talk to drugs. Didja ever notice that if you talk to drugs, people assume you’re on them?” was posted on the newsgroup Google Groups: rec.humor on May 12, 1994.

“People who ‘just say no to drugs’ are typically the ones I search for narcotics. Why? THEY TALK TO DRUGS” was posted on Twitter by The Night Stalker on July 22, 2009. “Say no to drugs… but then again if your talking to drugs you probably are on drugs” was posted on Twitter by Ryan k. Brown on February 28, 2011. “The saying, ‘Say no to drugs’ has always made me laugh. If you’re talking to drugs, it’s probably too late to say no to them” was posted on Twitter by John H. Nelson Jr. on May 27, 2014.


Wikipedia: Just Say No
“Just Say No” was an advertising campaign, part of the U.S. “War on Drugs”, prevalent during the 1980s and early 1990s, to discourage children from engaging in illegal recreational drug use by offering various ways of saying no. The slogan was created and championed by First Lady Nancy Reagan during her husband’s presidency.
