Don't like this campaing at all.
The message is a total mess. I don't do drugs (well ok, i smoke a bit) but this doesn't prevent me from doing them.
My opinion.

I quite like these.

Won't stop me taking drugs, but might trigger the right amount of thought in someone on the fence perhaps.

Pretty, but little Oomph, if you know what I mean.

Doin' it for the points

I like the idea--that cocaine is a designer drug, the choice of the rich. But the execution is lacking--too intellectual and not emotional enough. It needs to make you feel more, not think. Everyone knows intellectually that drugs are bad; you have to make them feel why.

I totally agree with Teenie, for these kind of campaigns you need a concept that strikes people emotionally, something that can definetely make them see the consecuences of the usage of drugs such as cocaine, heroin, etc.

For that reason, I like that Montana Meth Project ad with a beat-up mother in the kitchen. That was a very powerfully emotional ad.
I think both cerebral AND visceral approaches are valid for this type of topic. I don't particularly prefer one over the other. "The audience" for this problem is so broad, I don't think you can blanket the message with only one technique.

With that said, the ad with an Altoids can from this campaign is my favorite.

I saw that one here when they presented the Cannes winners. It brought tears to my eyes. It was very touching.

cokeheads would find this amusing, probably like it as a poster. It's almost a promotion. I do like the visuals in the campaign but not sure of it's effectiveness.
