"Dope" Billboard Draws Heat

CLEVELAND (AP) - Some people in Cleveland say a liquor company billboard has got to go.

The ad for Seagram's gin and juice pictures a woman with the caption, "I bring dope style and laughs! What do you bring to the party?"

One resident says the phrase makes her think of drugs.

But younger people in the neighborhood say for them, "dope" means "cool."

The billboard company promises that the ad will come down today.

Councilman Mike Polensek (poh-LEHN'-sehk) says if it doesn't, he'll call for a boycott of Seagram's products.
