A pink ribbon stands for breast cancer, a red ribbon stands for AIDS awareness, and a blue (or is it purple?) ribbon stands for child abuse. Is there a ribbon for drug use or abuse, and if there is, what color is it?

Sven, where did you find all that? Thank you! This helps a lot!

There ought to be one for mental illness. If there isn't, I'm starting one of my own!
