Marvel under Shooter at this point really got into the "Drugs are bad, mmkay?" habit, and it got so pervasive that you'd want to do drugs just to get away from it.

Looks like Shooter recruited Denny O'Neil to help get the anti-drug message across and help O'Neil regain the acclaim heaped on him for the early-70's claasic Green Lantern/Green Arrow stories he helped craft along with Neal Adams. Unfortunately, as I've mentioned in other posts on this site, it's awfully difficult to catch lightning in a bottle twice. I might add that it's hard to move forward when you're turning back the clock. Whoa! I usually pass out puns when I post here, now I'm double-dipping in the cliche mine!
