CBS Bans Marijuana Legalization Ad in Times Square

CBS (Central Brainwash System) Bans Marijuana Legalization Ad in Times Square

In another move demonstrating a rightward title in its advertising choices, CBS has rejected a video billboard ad for Times Square that advocated for the legalization of marijuana.

The NORML Foundation, part of the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, wanted to run its 15-second commercial asserting that the nation could generate billions of dollars in tax revenue by legalizing and regulating the sale of marijuana. NORML wanted to air the ad 18 times a day starting on February 1 on CBS’s 42nd Street digital billboard, but the network refused, according to CBS’ partner Neutron Media.


NORML was informed by Neutron Media that CBS would not approve the ad. “If CBS changes their morals we will let you know,” read Neutron’s email to NORML.

The decision not to accept the pro-marijuana commercial followed CBS’ rejection of a television spot during the Super Bowl promoting a gay online-dating website. But the network was willing to broadcast an antiabortion commercial featuring college quarterback Tim Tebow and his mother.

  1. Boycott CBS and Neutron Media!!!

  2. What about other media stations like Fox News? They’ve been known to show anti-marijuana propoganda. But why is fox news still so popular in the U.S.? Fact, is, boycotting simply wont be effective enough on its own. The Media ifluences us too much. WE need to influence THE MEDIA. Whether it be by media officials for our cause or political figures coming out as activists, this needs to be done.
