Public service announcement takes on the fad of Sagging Jeans

By Mateo Arnold

HOLYOKE, Mass. — The Black Mental Health Alliance of Massachusetts sponsored a new public service announcement that takes aim at the popular trend of sagging jeans.

Under Massachusetts state law it could be considered an offense punishable by a fine, even jail time.

“This is a mental health issue. This is leading these kids to think that all their whole gang mentality; they should be gangster and all that craziness,” said Dr. Omar Reid, founder of the alliance.

According to the PSA, young people who take part in the trend could be fined up to $300, even face up to 3 years of prison time.
