Armida Ascano Discusses Her Favorite Drug Culture Trends

 - Mar 19, 2013
From famed artists like Amy Winehouse to Lil Wayne, glamorization of drug-use and an overall acceptance of drug culture seems to be more prevalent than ever. Many witness casual references to drug use on what seems to be a daily basis, whether it’s in video games like Grand Theft Auto and Bioshock, popular music genres like Rap & EDM (Electronic Dance Music) or in Hollywood movies; the glorification of drug use has become a prominent feature of modern popular culture and it’s hard to escape.

In this episode of Editor Picks, Editor and Academy Strategist Armida Ascano discusses her favorite manifestations of Glamorized Addiction in popular culture products. These trends, while using drug culture as a key theme, tastefully use the subject rather than taking advantage of it. They are eye-catching, quirky and even a little humorous, adding a new spin to a classically touchy subject.
