'The Daily Show' Portrays What Marijuana Commercials Would Look Like on TV

Earlier this week it came out that CBS rejected a marijuana ad for the upcoming Super Bowl. Obviously this upset many people and became a huge discussion among many news outlets. So obviously The Daily Show had to comment.

The Daily Show ran a segment about CBS rejecting the marijuana commercial, and while they criticized CBS and the NFL for their anti-cannabis views, they decided to try to offer a solution. So they created their own marijuana commercial to run on TV that includes a list of weed's side effects, the same way you see on pharmaceutical commercials. Here's a look at their ad:

That's pretty good. In fact, real marijuana commercials should follow in similar footsteps. Maybe they could include side effects such as, "Not overdosing."

We'd love to see CBS' response if a Big Pharma came to them with an opioids ad for the Super Bowl. They'd probably cash that check before they even saw the commercial.

Saying you work in cannabis is sure to raise some eyebrows. Some people might be curious, others might not take you seriously, and still others might ask how they can invest. These cannabis executives dish on the reactions they get when they say they work in the space, and how those reactions have evolved over the past 10 years.

Can we see some ID please?
