A humourous commercial that recently aired in New Jersey, advocating for better, safer access to marijuana, has echoes of relevance north of the border as Canada continues to mould its position on medicinal and recreational weed.
In the commercial, released by MarijuanaDoctors.com, a clichéd version of a drug dealer is seen pushing sushi on his clients, offering slices of tuna and salmon from the inside of a trench coat.
"You wouldn't buy your sushi from this guy, so why would you buy your marijuana from him?" the commercial asks.
The company’s focus is to connect medicinal marijuana users with doctors willing to prescribe the drug. Twenty states and the District of Columbia have already legalized medicinal marijuana, and more are considering the transition. Two states, Colorado and Washington, have also legalized recreational marijuana.
But the commercial also speaks to Canada's current marijuana stance, and the company responsible could expand into Canadian in the near future.Read More »from Website connecting Americans with marijuana-prescribing doctors could come to Canada
