Misleading Anti-Marijuana Measure Billboard Forced Down

Posted by Sarah Mirk on Fri, Oct 12, 2012 at 2:14 PM

Opponents of the Measure 80 campaign to legalize marijuana in Oregon put up this billboard on SE 122nd and Division.

Which pissed off marijuana advocates because... um... that's clearly not a photo of someone who's high on pot. Maybe they've spiked their mountain of meth with an appetizer of hash. Also, there's a lot that's good about pot, if you're someone who's dealing with chronic pain—that's why it's already legal for medical use. People formed a Facebook group to protest the billboard, calling Clear Channel to demand its removal and Clear Channel actually did take it down this week after the advertiser refused to provide a phone number for people upset about the ad to call directly.

So, goodbye Faces of Meth Marijuana!
