CBS Rejects Medical Marijuana Ad for Super Bowl Broadcast

A medical marijuana company is claiming CBS rejected its ad for the Super Bowl.  The president of Acreage Holdings said they were willing to spend up to $5,000,000 for a 30-second ad during the broadcast of the game between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots.  The ad featured two people who benefited from the use of medical marijuana.  It argued that marijuana was a better option for pain relief than addictive opioids.  The company plans to post a 60-second version of the ad on its website.  Former Speaker of the House John Boehner is one of the investors and board members.
