Clint Eastwood, Crack Cocaine and Politics


Clint Eastwood appeared in a PSA in the mid-80s encouraging viewers to stay away from crack cocaine. Around this same time, he was elected Mayor of Carmel, California.

During his two-year term, Eastwood supported small business interests while advocating environmental protection and constructing a library annex, along with public restrooms, beach walkways, and a tourists’ parking lot.
