The goal of this poster is to discourage people from consuming drugs and those who consume drugs to stop consuming. 

The hand and the capsule of narcotics besides the hand are the focus of the poster. The motionless hand that is on the floor shows that someone is dead. The only clue is the opened capsule that has drugs rolling out of the capsule. The bolded words "ONE LITTLE THING LEADS TO THE NEXT" means that even though someone consumed the drug just by a little bit, he or she is dead after that. This poster wants to tell the reader that consuming drugs will cause death. 

The phrase "ONE LITTLE THING LEADS TO THE NEXT" allows readers to know that everything has consequences, In this case, trying just one pill of the drug can cause death because drugs are addictive time and an overdose of it will kill.
