The ONDCP failed to disclose that it was responsible for the anti-drug content, which is a violation of propaganda laws. The networks by the FCC because they did not disclose the government (ONDCP) as a sponsor. Anti-drug and specifically anti-marijuana stories were relatively popular with prime time drama at the time. The ONDCP would financially motivate and even manipulate scripts to broadcast their message. Fun fact for the day.
