    The campaign behind I-502, a ballot measure that would end cannabis prohibition in Washington State this fall, unveiled their first TV advertisement in support of the initiative. This commercial kicks off a recently announced million dollar ad campaign, which aims to keep marijuana legalization at the forefront of Washington voters’ minds as we approach November.

      I’ve been disabled (bad back and neck and wrist pain) If it wasn’t for medical marijuana I’d be in bed but with it I can do so many things like garden and cook, etc. But now they want to put my husband in jail. We don’t have the money to fight this but we are trying.

      I dont like it personally…
      What then are you doing wasting your time trying to convince people.You are in the wrong business madam…Lady Gaga smoked a joint on stage recently and shes a zillion times more convincing than you are.What this world needs is people convinced that yes marijuana can have its usefulness down here not boneless zombies who keep repeating what they have been told

      More about this ad; yes it opens with a negative statement.

      But please consider that it’s aimed at people WHO TYPICALLY WOULDN’T SUPPORT IT.

      Those who love marijuana and *freedom* will vote for it anyway. This ad is designed for stick in the mud’s who think it’s “evil” but will ultimately concur that the legalization will serve a practical use.

      It’s a good ad.
