They may not be as outrageous as other videos on the site, but the White House is turning to YouTube to get its anti-drug message across.

Government-produced anti-drug videos have been distributed on the trendy Internet site, which already includes clips of drug-induced behavior and step-by-step instructions for growing marijuana plants.

The administration says it is not paying any money to load its previously produced videos onto YouTube's service, which shows more than 100 million videos per day.

So far, thousands of YouTube users have watched some of the government's videos.

The government has linked its videos with terms like "war on drugs," "peer-pressure," "marijuana" and "weed," so anyone searching for those words can find the anti-drug messages.
