The Beeb's Club Drug Simulator

It’s not clear if the BBC’s Excess All Areas site is trying to discourage drug use or just help you decide what to mix with your X for a smoother come-down. Site users take control of a teen dancing in a virtual club, and with a few clicks can infuse his blood with cannabis, alcohol, speed, ecstacy or cocaine. With each progressive click he dances, spins, gets paranoid and wanders off the floor. The interface lets you increase the dose or build a drug cocktail. The kid has mad connections.

All teasing of propaganda aside, the site does get points for presenting drug information honestly and rationally. No fried-eggs-of-doom to see here. (via wfmu)
