BOSTON (CBS) — The first television ad for medical marijuana will soon grace Comcast cable channels across Massachusetts.
The ad is for MarijuanaDoctors.com, a New York-based company, encouraging would-be patients to go to their website to connect with physicians able to prescribe marijuana.
In the ad, a man in an alleyway is trying to sell sushi from his trench coat. The commercial asks: ‘You wouldn’t buy your sushi from this guy, so why would you buy marijuana from him?’
Boston University communications professor Tobe Berkovitz admits that some of the commercials are “really stupid” but there isn’t much that can be done.
