As someone who has experienced the direct effects of the opioid epidemic, I think it is atrocious that the Acreage Holdings ad was banned from playing during the Super Bowl this year. 
We had to sit through numerous pharmaceutical ads which always contain side effect after side effect. The alcohol related commercials are even worse, making it appear that alcohol is safe. Quite the contrary, alcohol and opioids kill thousands of people every year. And yet, their ads are allowed to flow freely every day. Why is this ok?

The Acreage Holdings commercial showed real life, holistic and completely safe medical treatment that could be available if we would just adjust our mindset. I really don’t understand why are we still accepting the lies that are being fed to us by our government and pharmaceutical companies? 

Someone needs to be held accountable, and the stigma around cannabis needs to change. I cannot express enough how important of a change this is, and how desperately we need this as a country. Whether it be for seizure treatment, chronic pain, PTSD or even high cholesterol, medical cannabis needs to be legalized in order for researchers to do their part and prove its benefits. I’m begging you to please join me in promoting a healthier and happier tomorrow for everyone!
