This smells to me of a federal grant to towns for doing something about
discouraging drug use, a non-profit seeing a source of funds, and a plan
to assist (for a fee) towns to put on such spots.  Town wins, non-profit
wins, TV station wins, kids ignore the spot, federal taxpayer foots the
bill.  Typical SNAFU?
