Is marijuana advertising legal or illegal?
It is hard to succeed in an industry without advertising. However, it is difficult to advertise things such as weed or marijuana. When it comes to drugs, there are strict rules in every country. Medical use of marijuana is legal in a limited number of territories such as Canada, Belgium, Australia, Netherlands, Spain and several U.S. states. The usage needs a prescription and the distribution is possible within a framework defined by laws.
Research on Marijuana
Marijuana research is challenging since the plant is illegal in most of the countries. The samples of drugs are difficult to obtain as one needs to get granted under authority of national government. Researchers are also facing difficulty in researching the effects of this drug as the people who smoke marijuana also smoke tobacco. As it is an illegal drug in many countries, people are reluctant to take part in the research, and if they also take part, then they are reluctant to reveal how much marijuana they actually smoke. However, many people in different countries are researching on this special drug and its effects and have published hundreds of studies.
Importance of advertising marijuana
Advertising marijuana will be helpful for the people to know its good and harmful effects. Law of many countries does not allow a business to use a website to sell marijuana products, however, the research on marijuana can be easily found on site. Advertisement will help in promoting awareness about the products and restrict a person from the harmful effects of the drug. People who are not aware of the drug and are forced to have it, can research and restrict themselves from overuse of this drug.
