Marijuana Reform Facebook Ads Restored After Social Network Ends 'Just Say Now' Ban

Category: News | Posted on Tue, August, 14th 2012 by THCFinder
Facebook turned over a new leaf Monday, unblocking advertisements promoting a marijuana legalization campaign involving a set of November ballot initiatives across the country.
 
The social media giant conceded to Internet freedom advocates over the past week that it had erred in yanking a pro-legalization group's ads from its network because of pot leaf images. Parties involved in the controversy confirmed the Facebook decision to The Huffington Post on Monday.
 
Just Say Now organizer Brian Sonenstein told The Huffington Post that the leafy ads were no longer listed as disapproved on Facebook.
 
When the online campaign's ads were submitted for review earlier this year, Facebook outright rejected them, as it did the group's ads two years ago. In 2010, Facebook took down Just Say Now's ads after about a week on the social network.
 
More than 15,000 supporters signed an online petition calling for Facebook to bring back the latest batch of Just Say Now ads, catching the eye of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Northern California.
