Pro-marijuana ads pulled from NASCAR's Brickyard 400

Maybe NASCAR and marijuana don’t mix, after all.
Under pressure from anti-drug groups, the company that owns the Jumbotron at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway has pulled a pro-marijuana ad from this weekend’s Brickyard 400 NASCAR race.
The ad, which extols marijuana as being "less harmful than alcohol," was produced by the Marijuana Policy Project and had been scheduled to air dozens of times from Friday through Sunday on the Jumbotron
The ad targeted beer drinkers, claiming that marijuana is not as fattening or dangerous as alcohol.
"Our goal is to make this weekend's event as educational as it will be enjoyable," Mason Tvert, director of communications for the Marijuana Policy Project, said in a statement. "We simply want those adults who will be enjoying a beer or two at the race this weekend to think about the fact that marijuana is an objectively less harmful product.”
After the Drug Free America Foundation, Inc. found out about the ad, they complained to Grazie Media, the company that owns the large screen located at the entrance to the raceway, who announced on Friday that they were pulling the spot.
"Grazie Media does not, in any way, shape or form, support the use of marijuana nor the promotion of illegal drugs at a family event," Vanessa Wojtala, CEO and director of programming at Grazie Media, said in a statement.

Marijuana from a Vending Machine? Believe it, Dude

You can buy a lot from a vending machine. Umbrellas, eggs, pizzas and more can be found inside the convenience of a cash-swallowing machine.
But schedule I drugs?
It's not as crazy as it sounds, says Joe DeRobbio, founder of Aliso Viejo-based Dispense Labs. His company has taken a design meant for industrial tools and applied it to the needs of marijuana dispensaries, he told the Orange County Register.
And now an outside investor has taken an interest. DeRobbio told the Register he expects his company's pending acquisition by Endexx Corp. to be completed Friday. Endexx is a publicly traded company from Cave Creek, Ariz. that bought another marijuana vending machine firm, CannCan, in April.
The machines identify patients by scanning their thumbs and medical marijuana cards. Once identified, a customer uses a touch-screen monitor to select a purchase from nearly 800 individual marijuana compartments.
Then the machine's custom software tracks what's purchased, who purchased it, when and how often. That creates a paper trail that could help dispensaries stay on the right side of the law, DeRobbio said.
To further protect dispensaries, the machines are encased in steel, he told the Register.
