Marijuana ads helping many publications

Advertising for medical marijuana is taking off, and that's good news for alternative publications such as the Bay Guardian, SF Weekly and East Bay Express, reports Anna Rendall of the nonprofit SF Public Press. And now such ads are cropping up in more staid publications, such as the Chronicle. Rendall says that weed advertising is growing in part because they face fewer regulations than the advertising of cigarettes and alcohol.

I would bet that those three papers (Guardian, SFW and EBX) make more money from adult advertising than medical marijuana.
