Stop the Presses!
From the "in case you hadn't figured it out already" department. cbc.ca reports "Hollywood movies unrealistic when it comes to sex and pot". Are they implying that they are realistic when it comes to other drugs?
Hollywood movies unrealistic when it comes to sex and pot
A team of Australian medical researchers published a new study today that said Hollywood movies fail to show the negative consequences of sex and drug use.
The team lead by Dr. Hasantha Gunasekera of the School of Public Health at the University of Sydney studied 87 of Hollywood's biggest box-office hits since 1983 and found plenty of sex, but only one reference to condoms. The films contained no depictions of unwanted pregnancy or sexually transmitted disease. The report also said that drug-use tended to be portrayed "without negative consequences" among the top-grossing films of the past two decades.[cbc.ca]
