The first ever marijuana commercial will hit television networks everywhere over the next couple months! Okay, by everywhere, we really mean just a few states. And by “first ever,” we mean “first ever that isn’t a political ad.” But hey, it’s a start.
Surprisingly, though, this marijuana ad isn’t about legalization. It’s by MarijuanaDoctors.com, a company that connects people seeking medical marijuana with doctors who can provide them with prescriptions.
The commercial goes a little something like this…
Enter a street dealer pushing sketchy-looking sushi, hanging from strings inside of his trenchcoat.
“Yo, you want sushi? I got sushi. I got the best sushi….I got the finest sashimi this area’s seen in years.”
Cut to the female narrator, who asks the question, “You wouldn’t buy your sushi from this guy, so why would you buy your marijuana from him?”
The alternative? MarijuanaDoctors.com – a simple, confidential, and safe way to obtain your medical marijuana prescription.
According to the press release, the commercial will be on the Comcast system and the networks that will air the commercial include: A&E, AMC, FOX, CNBC, CNN, Comedy Central, Bravo, Discovery, ESPN, FX, Food Network, HGTV, The History Channel, and several others. Don’t worry – it won’t appear on Disney or Nickelodeon. We could hear the concerned parental wails from here.
After New Jersey sees the commercial air this month, we’re not sure what states will be next. But stay tuned for updates! And for your viewing pleasure, the full commercial is below.
