Pennsylvania Launches MMJ Media Campaign to Prepare for 2018 Rollout
Before a single seed has been legally sown, a cannabis producer and dispensary operator in Pennsylvania has launched the state’s first ever MMJ media campaign. The goal is to inform people about the state’s soon-to-be-launched medical marijuana program.
SPREADING THE WORD
The company leading the charge is Cresco Yeltrah, which unveiled a nearly $500,000 ad campaign called “Welcome to a State of Relief.” The media blitz, which includes newspapers, magazines, billboards and social media outlets, seeks to introduce would-be participants to the Pennsylvania’s MMJ program.
The campaign is addressing questions about the 17 conditions that qualify for the program. And although medical marijuana is not expected to be available in Pennsylvania until early 2018, drivers in the Keystone State have already started seeing the ads and electronic billboards statewide and along major highways.
Will Vermont Be the Next State to Legalize Marijuana?
Earlier this year, Vermont’s governor Phil Scott, a Republican, decided to veto a bill that would have legalized marijuana. A blow was dealt to Vermonters in support of legalization. Fortunately, not all hope was lost. The governor sent the bill back to the legislature for changes to be made. He claims that he isn’t “philosophically opposed to ending the prohibition on marijuana.”
Changes To The Bill
The governor expressed several concerns about the bill in a letter he wrote. For one, he wants to find out if there are devices that can detect whether or not one is impaired from cannabis.
“To my mind, there is no general agreement on the impact of the public safety impacts, the role of marijuana in highway accidents and fatalities, the impact on the developing brain and at what age that is most impactful so developing a baseline of data is very important,” Jaye Pershing Johnson, legal counsel to the governor, told the Marijuana Advisory Commission.
