While shopping today......I went down the "PILL" area............... Walking along I spotted this bottle . So picked it to read the ad on the front.

MELATONIN

Fall Asleep Faster
Fall Asleep Longer

    Extra Strength

           5Mg.

100% DRUG-FREE!

Truth in advertising?

Hey, Donna.  It's a good idea to include the product name in the topic title! What part of that is it that you don't understand?

Melatonin is a hormone produced by the pineal gland of the brain, in animals with backbones.
For me, this stuff works (although I RARELY have any problem falling asleep) and I keep a huge bottle of sublingual melatonin on my desk for those times when I want to slip into a coma and don't plan to drive as when it hits me, it is just like an 'off' switch and I stop, drop, and rest until I'm damn good and ready to get up. Better than turkey!

I tried it a few times.  Each time, I didn't sleep well and woke up super groggy with a headache.  Tossed the rest of the bottle in the trash.  At least it was cheap.

Is there a commercial in here somewhere I missed?  Boobs went shopping, hit the drugs aisle and saw a natural supplement, so he's ragging on Pills.  OK, why is this in the Commercials You Hate !!! thread?  Confused  Not even a Television Related Rant; should be in Off Topic.  Wink

Would you rather it be from live humans? To be even clearer...have you ever heard of 'Animal Laboratories' and wondered why they are secluded and heavily guarded? Do YOU know the origination of your medicines?WinkBig smileLOLAll too often, straight out of real-life horror stories.
You think that is odd? Look into what medicines, such as those that treat Alzheimers, comes from - and then THANK ME for both THIS contribution and THAT contribution, along with many other people with good intentions, liking or needing free income, or even penniless street urchins who donate plasma for a meal or their next hit..."...these are our bodies which we give up for you" (wait a minute!ShockedDoes that sound kinda familiar?)
Just take it and don't ask questions - you'll feel so much better that way - ignorance is bliss.
Sort of reminds me of a little tune...
We have you humans where we want you.

Well...what IS a 'drug' and the purpose of a 'drug'?

We're all drug addicts - it's all about interpretation.

Well...what IS a 'drug' and the purpose of a 'drug'? <<< In my mind, when we take ANYTHING on- board we are drugging ourselves. Some are good and some...............well............... not so much.

I DRUGGED myself just now with coffee. (and cookies which are FULL of drugs)


We're all drug addicts - it's all about interpretation. <<< exactly

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drug <<< more drug experts?

The fact is:    I was in the DRUG section of a store. I was looking at DRUGS. The commercial on the front of the bottle said it was 100% DRUG FREE! And it wasn't nothing so it was a DRUG.

The fact is you are trying to pick an argument and already decided. You want attention and this is a waste of time.

Back to square one...………. I posted this because this is "Commercials I hate"  The front of the bottle said "Drug Free" I don't think this is correct...………..

The header on this site shows a family sitting in front of a TELEVISION with a commercial on the screen.  This site has other non-TV-related sections, such as Internet Ads, Radio Ads, and a whole lot of Miscellaneous forums.

The label on a product is not a commercial.

Perhaps you should start your own sub-forum here called Public Service Announcements so you can warn others about the perils of shopping, and life in general.

In big BOLD letters they "advertise" 100% Drug Free...In a commercial type setting ......This is not on the internet, or radio, or a repeat. It is not on TV but I still think it is a commercial. Again; This forum's name is NOT "TV commercials I Hate"

I can see the picture also. It "implies" TV commercials................. But the name "says" only commercials. (I would suppose, so as not to limit it.)

If a FA asks me to move it or delete it, I surely will.

And while we are off subject.......... I invite you also, to stop reading my posts if they cause you any problems.

The FA won't ask you to do anything!  He won't even notice unless someone reports it. It's not likely he would punish you for being ignorant.  This thang you do, it looks suspicious. It looks like you are starved for attention so you do odd things.  Like a random 'Pills' topic. You SHOULD stick with one section that is more fitting................Random crazy thoughts (0)(0) is having today.  Donna!

No, we're not off subject.  Now I get it.  Your symbols-only username is two PILLS, signifying the medications you should be taking.  They're not Boobs, they're Pills because you are a PILL.  Wink

Thanks for the invitation to not read your posts, Boobs/Pills.  That's why I suggested you start your very own corner of CIH, so I can ignore all your drivel and concentrate on the mentally productive members' posts.  Wink
