Pot Advertising Creating A Buzz In Port Angeles | King5.com Seattle

Some in the city are now wondering whether a big green bear promoting pot is legal. The answer: maybe. State law forbids the marketing of marijuana to children, and some worry thats whats happening here. “Why not make him a cigarette for adults, not a fuzzy creature for kids,” said Bondy, who sees the bear parade in front of his window tinting business a few times a week. There are surprisingly few restrictions on advertising medical marijuana. Ads are not permitted within 1,000 feet of schools or public parks. The ads are protected by the 1st Amendment. Rules regarding the promotion of recreational pot reside in a sort of gray area right now because they’re still being written. Beavers concedes her dancing bear may appeal to children, but thats not the intent.
