CBS Rejects a Medical Marijuana Ad Ahead of the Super Bowl | The Daily Show

CBS axes a medical marijuana ad ahead of the Super Bowl, but a weed commercial might not be all that different from a regular pharmaceutical ad…just add …


  1. The FBI estimates:

    * 100 BILLION dollars in black market recreational cannabis sales every year here in the United States and all that money goes to criminals and organized crime.

    * 30 BILLION is lost in potential tax revenue.

    * 15 BILLION is wasted on the capture and persecution simple cannabis consumers.

    Legalization solves all these problems and kicks organized crime out of the cannabis sales in favor of legitimate business.

    Why legalize? Because cannabis is safer.

    Figures directly from the CDC on numbers of deaths per year in the USA:

    * Prescription Drugs: 237,485 + 5,000 traffic fatalities 
    * Tobacco: 480,000
    * Alcohol: 88,013 + 16,000 traffic fatalities 
    * Cocaine: 4,906
    * Heroin: 7,200
    * Aspirin: 466
    * Acetaminophen (Tylenol): 179
    * Marijuana: 0, none, not a single fatal toxic overdose in all medical history and no significant statistical record of traffic problems.

    Legalize, regulate, TAX recreational cannabis!

  2. “Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."
    ― Francis Young – DEA Judge – 1988

    "The illegality of cannabis is outrageous, an impediment to full utilization of a drug which helps produce the serenity and insight, sensitivity and fellowship so desperately needed in this increasingly mad and dangerous world."
    – Dr. Carl Sagan (American Cosmologist, Astrobiologist, author & science communicator)

    Marijuana is less dangerous than alcohol & less addictive than caffeine.

    "Penalties against possession of a drug should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself; and where they are, they should be changed. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against possession of marijuana in private for personal use…”
    – Jimmy Carter (U.S.President)

    “Congress should definitely consider decriminalizing possession of marijuana…We should concentrate on prosecuting the rapists and burglars who are a menace to society.”
    -Dan Quayle (U.S. Representative & Vice President)

    "Even if one takes every reefer madness allegation of the prohibitionists at face value, marijuana prohibition has done far more harm to far more people than marijuana ever could."
    “The anti-marijuana campaign is a cancerous tissue of lies, undermining law enforcement, aggravating the drug problem, depriving the sick of needed help and suckering well intentioned conservatives and countless frightened parents.”
    – William F. Buckley Jr. (American conservative author and commentator)

    “You bet I did -— and I enjoyed it.” ….when asked if he had ever smoked marijuana.
    – Michael Bloomberg (New York City Mayor)

    "Studies have consistently failed to establish the existence of a link between the harshness of a country’s drug laws and its levels of drug use."
    -Kofi Annan (U.N. Secretary General)

    "Pot is a better drug than alcohol. I'll prove it to you. You're at a ball game or a concert, and someone's really violent and aggressive and obnoxious, are they drunk or are they smoking pot?"
    “Why is pot against the law? It wouldn't be because anyone can grow it, and therefore you can't make a profit off it, would it?” “…It grows naturally upon our planet. Doesn’t the idea of making nature against the law seem to you a bit…unnatural?”
    -Bill Hicks (Satirist, Social Critic, Stand-Up Comedian)

    "If the words "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness" don't include the right to experiment with your own consciousness, then the Declaration of Independence isn't worth the hemp it was written on."
    Terence McKenna (American ethnobotanist, author, advocate for responsible use of natural psychedelic plants)

  3. When I wanna throw a bitch fit over some shady political correctness. It never fails, Trevor Noah is already on the issue and cracking me the fuck up. Then it reminds me that we do have some really decent people still out in the world. That right there… Brings the smile back to my face. Never stop what your doing Trevor.

  4. Until we stop calling this medicine Weed and use the Medical term of Cannabis we will never get anywhere in this country.

  5. My friend/ex boyfriend sent me a clip of the commercial that was rejected and it was about epilepsy (which I have) and was like "hey it's you!" I make jokes about my epilepsy all the time so that part isn't an issue or anything. It's that in this situation, it's stupid that people are still debating how I should be allowed to treat my own disorder

  6. This is about money. As soon as the medical weed people can outbid Budweiser, NFL will suddenly drop the sanctimonious policies against it. 🙄

  7. So, we can have drunken football players but not high players that can not only benefit people with cancer but also bring as much pleasure as being drunk? FUUUUUCKKK!!!!

  8. A man fucking another man in the ass is legal in the USA.
    Cigarettes (cancer sticks) that kills millions of people is also legal.
    Alcohol that kills millions of people every year is also legal.
    Abortion (slaughtering of innocent kids) is also legal in the USA.

    But marijuana which have tons of medical benefits and hasn’t killed anyone is illegal.

    Americans are naturally retarded.

  9. Prohibition is an outdated concept, the tax money involved is eventually what will change people's minds.
