A Colorado-based law firm is responsible for the first cannabis ad to ever air on national television.
With the cannabis industry booming, it’s no surprise that the Green Rush is getting a lot of attention. National attention that is. And considering that media is the biggest conduit in the Information Age, it’s only natural that pot is appearing on our television screens. No, we’re not talking about “Weeds.” We’re talking about advertisements. That’s right: the first cannabis ad has finally hit the small screen, and on national networks, no less.
The ad, which aired earlier this month, has so far been featured on mainstream networks like CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, The Weather Channel, Viceland, Headline News, and Fox Business.
Perhaps the most surprising element of the commercial is perhaps what it’s not for. Rather than showcasing a dispensary or retailer, it’s a bona fide showcase for Hoban Law Group, a Colorado-based law firm.
