The Gen X Chronicles: Part Seven - Just Say No.

More from the Reagan we have a sampling of the "Just Say No!" campaign of the 80s...

It's "The Just Say No!" boardgame to enjoy with neighborhood friends. 

"The Just Say No" Basketball

"The Just Say No!" Baseball Bat - fully worthy of an exclamation mark.

Remember these bulletin board maps that would show you places where stuff happened and colored string to show you the journey someone took to get there?  These days with infographics and other digital options, I'm not sure who would have the patience to put something like this all the pins and strings just fall out when you move the map? 

A bejeweled "Just Say No" pin?  I don't know about you, but I would've been beat up in the school parking lot for wearing something like this...maybe it was for old ladies of the 80s to wear to their high teas where they would talk about semi-hopeless social us ruffian 80s kids....
