Marijuana Ad Pulled From Outside NASCAR’s Brickyard 400

Based in Washington, D.C., Marijuana Policy Project is the nation’s largest pro-marijuana legalization advocacy group. The ad emphasizes pot has “no calories, no hangovers” and “it’s not linked to violence or reckless behavior.” The narrator concludes, “Less harmful than alcohol, and time to treat it that way.”

Marijuana Policy Project spokesman Mason Tvert said his group paid $2,200 for the ad. It was scheduled to appear 72 times through Sunday.

“I certainly hope we get our $2,200 back,” Tvert said. “We think it’s rather hypocritical for these folks to pull an ad highlighting the relative safety of marijuana compared to alcohol, yet welcome with open arms the copious amount of alcohol use taking place on the premises.”

Indiana is a piece o sht state anyway.

A person can't even buy beer on Sunday's in that crap state.

Indiana is backwards in a lot of ways

But we've got a very healthy liberty movement, with decent sized protests happening every few months or so, armed marches at our capital throughout the year.

That being said the state just lowered the amount of marijuana that is considered a felony, now you just have to have 10oz instead of 28oz to be thrown in a cage for up to a year.

And we still can't buy booze (from a liquor store) on a Sunday, but I can buy a growler from a brewery or get wasted and drive home from any bar/restaurant/sporting venue. It's just a bunch of BS cronyism.

QUESTION: did NASCAR pull the video or did the Indianapolis Motor Speedway?

ounces or grams?

probably grams--IDK

Some early NASCAR drivers ran moonshine

so their livelihood was tied to alcohol remaining illegal.
