Well, you just watched the controversial Medical Cannabis Super Bowl Ad CBS Refused to Run.
An article just released on www.greenentrepreneur.com reads: " It was all over the news on Tuesday that CBS rejected a public service announcement highlighting the benefits of medical cannabis, which was intended to be aired during the 2019 Super Bowl.
"Long story short, what happened was Acreage Holdings, one of the largest U.S. based cannabis companies, which counts former House Speaker John Boehner and former Massachusetts Governor Bill Weld among its advisors, created a 60-second public service announcement (or ad, if you will) featuring three medical cannabis patients and their loved ones explaining how marijuana had changed their lives for the better -- and suggesting it is a great alternative to other more dangerous pharma drugs."
One reader commented :
"I am a cannabis nurse. Cannabis is medicine; research from around the world has shown for decades that cannabis is safe, effective, and works with the body's own endocannabinoids and endocannabinoid system to affect many conditions: pain, seizures, depression, anxiety, GI upset, nausea and vomiting, breast and prostate cancer, Alzheimer's, migraines... the list of conditions treatable by cannabis is amazing. The government, pharmaceutical companies, and other supportive industries (like medical laboratories where you get your blood work done) do NOT want you to know about the effectiveness of medicinal cannabis, as an entire industry relies on YOU relying on their pills and services that keep you needing more pills. Want more information? Email me: I work specifically with patients who are interested in or who are using medicinal cannabis to help them use it safely, effectively, and appropriately. The goal of medicinal cannabis use? Return patients to their optimum level of wellness and functioning"
NO matter where you stand on the issue. i dont think its right for a corporation to refuse us information or knowledge because it may not fit their agenda.
Just for fun (and to point out the hypocricity of the situation) Lets all count how many beer or alcohol ads CBS allows !
