The Marijuana Policy Project is all about educating the masses on a new approach to marijuana. They have recently come out with commercial, featuring an actual marijuana consumer, that is airing on cable and broadcast television in much of California starting today, July 8. This commercial discusses the need to tax and regulate marijuana in the state of California as a means to help ease the budget crisis and bring responsible marijuana consumers into the legal tax base.
Good Luck to the bill and to all the Californians trying to get this thing passed!
KABC in Los Angeles and KGO and KNTV in San Francisco apparently will not air the commercial.
"How can you debate it if they won't air both sides?" wondered Bruce Mirken, a spokesman for the Marijuana Policy Project, which is behind the ad buy that he called "modest but not trivial."
