      HERE’S THE MEDICAL MARIJUANA AD
      CBS Banned From Super Bowl Broadcast

      1/24/2019 10:05 AM PST

      This is the medical marijuana ad CBS rejected for the Super Bowl, and it’s incredibly moving and emotional.

      The ad, produced by Acreage Holdings, a marijuana and cannabis investment firm, was willing to pay $5 million for the spot, but CBS turned it down … because, we’re told, they don’t allow any marijuana ads on the air.

      The ad profiles 3 people — a boy who had hundreds of seizures a day that were not abated by traditional medicine, a man addicted to opioids, and a veteran who was in severe pain after his leg was amputated. All say medical marijuana made life livable.

      The point of the ad is to push for legalization of medical marijuana on the federal level. 30 states have made medical marijuana use legal, but a federal law would make a big difference.

      Joe Montana
      I’m In the Weed Biz Now!

      101 1/24/2019 2:52 PM PST
      Breaking News
      Call him Grow Montana … because the NFL Hall of Famer is investing HEAVILY in the weed business.
      62-year-old Joe Montana is one of the major investors of a company called Caliva — a major legal marijuana operation out of San Jose, CA.
      The company not only grows weed — it also sells everything from joints to vape pens and even marijuana beverages.
      Montana started a venture fund back in 2015 — and when Caliva was seeking investors for a $75 million round of funding, Montana’s company joined in.
      Caliva CEO Dennis O’Malley issued a statement saying the company plans on opening retail stores in major cities in 2019.
      He added, “What we’re trying to do is be the #1 brand in California … We believe this is where global brands are made.”
      As for why Montana decided to invest — O’Malley says Joe believes the company will “make a serious impact on opioids use or addiction.”

      I’m not a weed smoker by any means but I have people close to me that smoke.

       

      Why does america look at weed like its crack cocaine? Especially in this conservative state of Texas I live in. What is the REAL reason that they don’t like weed in America? Is it because it can’t be taxed so they try to brainwash the sheep?

      LOL sure would. I believe with Canada legalizing it gives the US a better understanding of how it can benefit the country as a whole. If anything the US states that have legalized it recreational should help support why the rest of the country should do the same. Law enforcement would benefit too. They can dedicate their resources to stopping more serious crime.

      The problem I have with legalizing marijuana is the same problem I have with cigarettes and alcohol. They should be taxed, but the taxed dollars are going to get wasted. One of the main reasons our health insurance is as bad as it is, is because there are major dollars being spent on cancer (caused by smoking), and liver (an other problems caused by alcohol). If marijuana becomes legal, in all forms, there is a 100% chance that marijuana use will have expensive side effects. There should be specific tax dollars (like 75% of it), be put towards offsetting those medical costs. The same should be done NOW for tobacco and alcohol.

      I was taught weed was an illegal drug… and like all illegal drugs I never tried them and never want to try them.    No one in my family or close friends do as well.

       

      Have seen plenty of people that do get hooked on these drugs and they spend a lot of their money and a lot of their time being in an altered state of mind.  You should be able to get your high from your wife, kids, family, Jesus.. life!  Not drugs

      These ‘rejected’ Super Bowl ads are just a media ploy. People fall for it all the time. They get far more exposure by claiming to be ‘rejected’ than they would just by airing them and paying up the 5mil. So instead of paying 5m for ‘super bowl’ exposure they get even MORE exposure and pay nothing. It’s genius really… I’m sure we’ll see more and more of these ‘rejected’ adds every year as companies realize how much free exposure they get.

      Tax revenue

      DUII level or slightly down

      Kids aren’t using it

      Drug dealers out of business or registering to legally produce it

      CBD alternatives readily available for medical use

      THC and recreational use has not had a spike or negative impact

      Oh and again, the tax revenue. Here it is 40% to schools and 20% to mental health and drug addiction.

      OK I’m not disagreeing with the overall point, but have an issue with these two minor points.

      A) How do you do a preliminary test for marijuana impairment in a traffic stop?  You can’t have them walk the line.

      B) The biggest problem in high schools presently is vaping.   Even though its illegal its hard to catch, and kids do it in the parking lot.  Its mainly tobacco/nicotine, and vaping THC requires an illegal alteration of the device.  If marijuana/THC vaping becomes legal I see this as becoming a major problem in schools and more prevalent in society.

      No alterations required. THC vapes come in the same form as tobacco/nicotine vapes. THC vaping is already legal in several states. The same states with tobacco/nicotine vapes. If your argument were true there would be an issue with vaping THC at this moment. Vaping THC is just another way to smoke. Technology has come a long ways. Do some research.

If your argument were true there would be an issue with vaping THC at this moment. Vaping THC is just another way to smoke. Technology has come a long ways. Do some research.

      In Florida alterations are required because vaping THC is illegal.  I’ve discussed this with the school resource officer, because I wanted to know how he can tell if a vape pen has nicotine or other illegal drugs.  He says he can easily tell if the vape pen has something besides nicotine because its been altered.  You pull out the cartridge and put in another cartridge. He can send it to the lab if he chooses to.    I presume that if its legal then you won’t have to do it yourself, and you can more easily get a hold of a marijuana vape pen.

      As I said I’m not against legalizing weed, but not to increase its usage.  Its just going to make things harder in schools.   If you don’t think marijuana is a problem in high school you need to talk to some people who work there.   The only problem that is probably worse is nicotine vaping.   So we’ll be putting those two together now.

      A.   A preliminary test is if you smell it on them in the car.   Sure you can make them walk the line and do all the tests for a drunk driver.   Ever tried to drive high?   Being high is more impaired than being drunk.   The few times I got high, I couldn’t even dribble a basketball let alone drive a car.

      Pot isn’t harmless but when you consider prescription drugs and alcohol, it is far behind them in deaths (zero, as in nobody can OD from pot) and addiction (it does not contain addictive agents).

      Hell, fast food and cigarettes are far worse for you.

      I smoked a little pot in high school but it usually just introverted me and made me hang out with friends at home in the basement.

      I drove drunk too many times under 21 and I am thankful that my idiocy didn’t cost anyone their lives. So fucking stupid…

      I know multiple people who have continually lost jobs because they can’t stop smoking pot. These people also smoke cigarettes and occasionally drink, but they don’t have any other vices. They’ve never failed any alcohol tests, or other drug tests… only marijuana.

      Alcohol is only worse for kids because they have bad parents and they make stupid decisions. I also know of incidents where kids have smoked pot, drove, ran a stop sign and got killed. Marijuana is not a blameless thing.

      What does alcohol have to do with it?  That’s like saying that getting pneumonia is OK because its better than cancer.  Pot is terrible for kids.   Have you ever had to try to teach a kid who is high?  I have.  Its not fun.   There is no learning going on.  If you have a child, do you want him or her getting high before or during school?   Sure you can pass high school pretty easily high or not.  The school districts main goal is to get a diploma for as many students as possible. Their goal is 100% graduation rate.  But there are two kinds of students-  Group A) the ones who are taking AP chemistry and Calculus 2.  These are the ones that might go to U of Florida or other good colleges.  Then there are Group B who don’t give a crap about school and slide through regular classes and end up competing for a job as an assistant manager at Autozone or driving a beer truck.  If you want your kid to be in Group A then you better make sure they aren’t smoking weed.  If you want them to be in Group B then pot is perfectly OK.

      Doing it at the occasional party on the weekend is not going to affect anything, but many people who smoke pot do it every day and that is when your brain turns into mush.

      Pot isn’t harmless but when you consider prescription drugs and alcohol, it is far behind them in deaths (zero, as in nobody can OD from pot) and addiction (it does not contain addictive agents).

      Hell, fast food and cigarettes are far worse for you.

      I smoked a little pot in high school but it usually just introverted me and made me hang out with friends at home in the basement.

      I drove drunk too many times under 21 and I am thankful that my idiocy didn’t cost anyone their lives. So fucking stupid…

      So yeah, alcohol is far worse for kids.

      Legalize pot tax it, put the money to good use, regulate it…

      What does alcohol have to do with it? That’s like saying that getting pneumonia is OK because its better than cancer. Pot is terrible for kids. Have you ever had to try to teach a kid who is high? I have. Its not fun. There is no learning going on. If you have a child, do you want him or her getting high before or during school? Sure you can pass high school pretty easily high or not. The school districts main goal is to get a diploma for as many students as possible. Their goal is 100% graduation rate. But there are two kinds of students- Group A) the ones who are taking AP chemistry and Calculus 2. These are the ones that might go to U of Florida or other good colleges. Then there are Group B who don’t give a crap about school and slide through regular classes and end up competing for a job as an assistant manager at Autozone or driving a beer truck. If you want your kid to be in Group A then you better make sure they aren’t smoking weed. If you want them to be in Group B then pot is perfectly OK.

      Doing it at the occasional party on the weekend is not going to affect anything, but many people who smoke pot do it every day and that is when your brain turns into mush.

      Well, pot is illegal, so kids aren’t smoking it. LOL.

      I think pot smoking among kids is more indicative of other family problems, not THE problem.

      Robert Kraft
      Josh Gordon’s a ‘Real Good Guy’
      … But Addiction Is Real

      Breaking News
      New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft says the team was seriously committed to helping Josh Gordon beat his addiction issues … but they realized real quick, the problems were way too serious.
      Robert and his son, Jonathan (who’s the president of the Patriots) spoke about the troubled WR on “Boston Sports Tonight” … calling Gordon a “real good guy” with incredible potential.
      The Patriots signed Gordon in Sept. knowing full well his history with substance abuse — but figured they could give him a support system to overcome his demons.
      27-year-old Gordon crushed it for the Pats until Dec. — when he was suspended by the league after reportedly falling off the wagon, and failing another drug test.
      “Unfortunately, people like that need mentoring at a young age,” Robert said.
      “But, when it becomes addiction, addiction is something that is way beyond our … we gave him tremendous support on a daily basis, and he was worthy. But, I think we as a society have to try to help these young people not to get addicted in the first place.”
      “And, that’s the sad part of this. He’s a good guy — a really good guy. It makes us sad.”
      Jonathan echoed his father’s sentiments … saying Gordon clicked with his teammates, had a great work ethic and could have been a key contributor in the playoffs — if he could have stayed clean.
      “This wasn’t a troublemaker in the locker room,” Jonathan said … “Unfortunately, he had some personal demons.”
      “As a person and as a teammate, he was beloved in the locker room. And, I’m sure if you ask guys this week, they would tell you they wish he was here with us. He was not a guy that was disruptive or a problem.”
      Both Jonathan and Robert believe Gordon’s issues run very deep — and his story is a wake-up call about how to prevent addiction in the first place.
      “He didn’t grow up with any support system,” Jonathan added … “He saw other people doing it, and it gets back to the original way we grew up.”
      “And, that doesn’t mean people don’t get addicted from all walks of life — but you get exposed to it in a whole different way when you come from where Josh Gordon came from. He is a very good kid.”
      The Patriots are reportedly paying for Gordon’s treatment while away from the team — and if they win the Super Bowl, Gordon is expected to get a ring.
