First broadcast of MMJ commercial

Posted By on Fri, Sep 3, 2010 at 2:48 PM

This week, Canna Care in Sacramento became the first medical marijuana center to air a TV commercial in history.

Here's Time magazine:

Earlier this week, a television commercial advertising medicinal marijuana was aired in California — the first ever broadcast in the U.S. The ad was shown over FOX affiliate KTXL in Sacramento, and has swirled up a nice little cloud of controversy from community members who worry about the commercial's effect on children. The ad itself features a series of testimonials from customers, all A-typical of our drug culture stereotypes: A pretty young woman claims she was diagnosed with a bone disease, while a middle-aged woman says she was hit by a drunk driver.

Below, find the commercial, and a talk show in Rhode Island, where MMJ is also legal, discussing the commercial's appropriateness.
