Still Think It's Harmless?, also known as Still Think It's Cool?, is a phrasal template parodying anti-drug campaigns, which is typically used to caption images depicting obviously false or exaggerated side effects of cannabis.

Anntenshone: Don't Think Marajuano Is a Bad Drug

Anntenshone: Don't Think Marajuano Is a Bad Drug refers to a series of photoshopped absurd anti-drug memes, which purposely misspells the phrase "Attention: Don't think marijuana is a bad drug?" The meme follows the phrase with a photograph of a cultural artifact juxtaposed against a distorted version of the artifact.

The earliest known version of the meme was posted by Instagram [7] user @crankeduptoelevent on November 25th, 2016. The post features characters from the children's television series VeggieTales before and after consuming cannabis. The post received more than 70 likes in less than two years (shown below).

Two days later, the image was shared on the /r/dankmemes subreddit by Redditor xDankMemes.[8] The post received more than 880 points (99% upvoted) in two years. Additionally, the Facebook [9] account Crippling Things shared the image, and it received more than 12,000 reactions, 2,900 comments and 8,600 shares in two years.

Marijuana is the most commonly used illegal drug. So, logically, not only is it most common in traffic fatalities, but it'd be most common in most demographics.

Marijuana: the most common illegal drug in college graduates.
Marijuana: the most common illegal drug in tech billionaires.
Marijuana: the most common illegal drug in first responders.
Marijuana: the most common illegal drug in best-selling authors.

It's really a good example of how true facts can be used to generate utter bullshit.
