The linked video supporting Medical Marijuana was rejected by CBS for airing during the Superbowl. In your opinion, did CBS make the right call?

This should be a discussion between the patient and their doctor.

Is Cialis illegal in any state?

I don't think so.... but I'm not sure exactly what an activist ad has to do with MD discussion. I thought you were suggesting all medications should be discussed, and not advertised.... which I would partially agree with.

I don’t think that treatments that may be illegal and for which studies have not been done to establish efficacy should be advertised to the public. The ad is just a series of anecdotes.

My only caveat there is the FDA does consider risk when approving/challenging both ads and indications. While I fully agree that products without full testing shouldn't be advertised, I also think
a) there are actually more robust studies done on pot than Zicam - nothing nearing the trials needed to launch a new drug though
b) MDs should be able to Rx pot (would require schedule change) if they believe it would help Pat
c) the only way the studies needed to Rx pot will occur is via public pressure.

Commercials promoting use of medical marijuana shouldn’t even be necessary. Pot should be legal and freely available in all forms.

Problem is it’s given out like candy. Seems ever kid in Cali has a pot card. CBS is looking out for the bottom line. Hate to upset anyone.
