If your assignment is to somehow combine biographical information with your anti-drug theme, there are any number of well-known personalities whose careers and lives have been ended as a result of drug use. You need to determine who you want to use as your person of focus; your slogan would depend upon that choice. If you chose Elvis Presley, for example, you might be able to play off the title of one of his songs or movies. Whitney Houston's career was certainly impacted by use of drugs, if you want a recent celebrity. Illustrations might consist of two photos - one of your chosen celebrity early on, when still drug-free, and a second late in the career, when the effects of the drug usage were visibly obvious.

Hugs not Drugs! And then you could have a picture of some panda bears hugging or something. Or maybe human beings hugging.

Drug posters usually have some scary image on them to be motivational.  Why not divide the poster into your potential with and without drugs.  On the one hand, lying alone in a crack house at the point of death.  On the other hand, in a successful career.

I came across a good idea for an anti-drug poster in the book "The 22 Immutable Laws of Marketing." You could have "drugs are for losers" as the slogan. Underneath you could have a man losing his wife/girlfriend, a man losing his job, a man losing his house, and a man losing his mind. You may gain a temporary positive through drugs, but your losses are significant and long-term. The idea is to imprint that into people's minds.

Maybe you can make one drawing of a person and make a copy of that drawing. Then for your poster you can put that same person into two different situations. One situation can show the person succeeding (money signs, a house, a car, a family, etc.) and the other situation can be just the person on the street.

Your slogan can be that "Drugs are a choice. Which of these lives do you want to be yours?" Or, something like that...

Anyone who's ever seen before-and-after photos of people who have become addicted to meth would be stupid to get addicted himself.  If you have a weak stomach, don't follow the link below.  Perhaps you could somehow pun on the word "meth," such as "Before drugs and then the aftermeth."
