Weed Company Has Super Bowl Ad Rejected By CBS

NY Post- CBS has sacked a Super Bowl ad by a cannabis company that calls for the legalization of medical marijuana.

Acreage Holdings, the US-based company backed by former House Speaker John Boehner, said the network nixed the proposed 30-second spot after seeing a rough outline, according to Bloomberg News.

The ad aimed to “create an advocacy campaign for constituents who are being lost in the dialogue,” Acreage President George Allen told Bloomberg.

This was very disappointing news to receive today. CBS is anti-weed. 30-second Super Bowl ads are worth 5 MILLION dollars! Obviously, I’m not CBS, but I would advertise much more controversial things than marijuana if someone offered me 5 millllllion dollars to do so. CBS is still too behind the times to align themselves with medical marijuana. Well, Blakey Locks is vastly ahead of the times. If anybody out there is pushing to legalize cocaine I would be very happy to advertise for you on my blogs. I am also very pro-texting and driving if anyone out there wants me to do a #sponsored video of me blogging while driving for the low, low price of $5 million.

But in all seriousness, this isn’t surprising, but it is disappointing. It’s not like this ad would be just encouraging people to go out and get baked. It was an ad calling for political action to legalize medical marijuana. Now I’m no doctor but from everything I’ve heard there are tons of benefits to medical marijuana and can not only ease the pain of sick patients but can literally help to save lives. The only real argument against it I’ve seen is that old white guys are still very afraid of reefer madness.

Now I’m not trying to brag or anything, but I’ve done a couple of pots in my time and I survived to tell the tale. I will tell you that I have had to go to the hospital, I’ve sprained my wrist, and just absolutely demolished my self-worth due to alcohol MANY times. However, CBS will probably have approximately ~73 Dilly Dilly commercials throughout the Super Bowl. As long as that “please drink responsibly” gets slid we can continue to advertise an incredibly addictive substance, but please not the deadly, highly addictive medical marijuana.

Possibly the worst part of all of this was opening up reporters and random Twitter users to make terrible weed jokes:

This makes me never want to smoke weed again.

Now just in case there was any confusion there is a very clear moral to this blog: compromise all of your morals if the price is high enough. I am now accepting all offers for advertising on my blogs. I don’t care what your cause is, as long as the price is worth it. Let’s do this.
