What would make for a more interesting Super Bowl ad than beer? How about marijuana?
This year, we may actually see it happen. Intuit recently launched a competition offering small businesses the opportunity to win a professionally produced commercial during the Super Bowl. All it takes to become a finalist is gaining the most online votes, and right now, marijuana policy reform group NORML is in the lead.
NORML is a nonprofit, public-interest lobby that for more than 40 years has provided a voice for those Americans who oppose marijuana prohibition. Their mission is to move public opinion sufficiently to legalize the responsible use of marijuana by adults, and to serve as an advocate for consumers to assure they have access to high quality marijuana that is safe, convenient and affordable. NORML has regional chapters all across America, including a Dallas/Fort Worth chapter.
The contest will consist of several rounds and an Intuit staff selection, but winning this round will qualify NORML as a finalist. According to the Huffington Post, Intuit has expressed no bias against the reform group, commenting that they “have no stance on medical marijuana as a company. By design, we’ve had a diverse range of businesses entering Small Business Big Game and sharing their unique stories with the world.”
