Sure, let Donald Trump and Mike Bloomberg do ads, but of course, don’t talk about a medical cure that is helping people all over the country because it’s not an Opioid.
That’s the stance that the Super Bowl seemed to take during their legendary commercials that are probably the best form of marketing as far as a guaranteed viewing than any other ads throughout the year.
According to TMZ, “Acreage Holdings, a marijuana and cannabis investment firm, was willing to pay $5 million for the spot, but CBS turned it down … because, we’re told, they don’t allow any marijuana ads on the air.”
The ad featured a “boy who had hundreds of seizures a day that were not abated by traditional medicine, a man addicted to opioids, and a veteran who was in severe pain after his leg was amputated. All say medical marijuana made life livable.”
The ad is looking to aid legalization in all 50 states, something that Bernie Sanders is leaning into it heavy for his campaign, and the hope for many who use Cannabis for many reasons are hoping that life could be made easier for fuller legalization and access to the plant.
