USA. The first mainstream TV advert for cannabis goes live
Only 10-15 years ago few people would have ever thought it possible that mainstream TV stations in the USA would ever broadcast a commercial for cannabis. But that is exactly what is planned. The advert is for Marijuana Doctors, a service of medical professionals advertising their ability to prescribe cannabis to those that need it. The advert should make it easier for medical cannabis users to locate pot-prescribing doctors.
The advert is well produced and asks people why they should accept the dangers of buying unregulated street cannabis when they have a safer alternative. The advert further undermines the criminal sub-culture which has been gifted control of the cannabis market for so long. And the advert shows a safer, more responsible regulated alternative. The advert is below. And a good link to an article on the advert is here https://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/03/03/3352921/watch-marijuana-commercial-air-major-television-stations/#
