First medical marijuana ad on TV airs
Broadcasting & Cable's Michael Malone reports that KTXL, the Tribune-owned Fox affiliate in Sacramento, this week aired what it says is the first TV ad for a medical marijuana dispensary. The ad, produced by KTXL, features patients of the dispensary giving testimonials. The word "marijuana" isn't said in the spot, but cannibis is mentioned. FM music stations have been running such spots for a couple of years now, but this is a first for TV. Here's how KTXL covered it.
