Super Bowl Ad Rejected

Medical Marijuana

The ads people will see during this year's Super Bowl won't include one for medical marijuana, after CBS, which is airing the February 3rd game, rejected an spot from a cannabis company that's backed by former Republican House Speaker John Boehner. Acreage Holdings wanted to air an ad calling for the legalization of medical marijuana, showing two people who have benefited from using it, a veteran with combat injuries and a child with seizures. Medical marijuana is currently legal in more than 30 states, but because it's still banned under federal law, it has hampered research and made it hard for some people who could use the drug for medical reasons to be able to get it. Acreage, which has a market value of $2.4 billion, has cannabis operations in some 15 states. But the company said it was careful to create an ad that was a "call to political action," not one that was meant to promote its brand. (Bloomberg)
