Marketing drinking flasks in pill bottles--same on Urban outfitters

Apparently Urban Outfitters thinks it is OK to try to market flasks to people in the great outdoors by using pill bottles--Say what? It reminds me of my childhood when candy makers had candy cigarettes to encourage children to smoke! Come on Urban Outfitters--what are you thinking?

Read about it here:

Urban Outfitters, popular with teens, is currently selling pint glassesflasks and shot glasses made to look like prescription pill bottles. These products make light of prescription drug misuse and abuse, a dangerous behavior that is responsible for more deaths in the United States each year than heroin and cocaine combined. Medicine abuse has increased 33 percent over the past five years with one in four teens having misused or abused a prescription drug in their lifetime. Combined with alcohol, the misuse and abuse of prescription medications can be especially dangerous, making the Urban Outfitter Rx pint and shot glasses and flasks even more disturbing.
