The Five Silliest Ads Florida’s Anti-Pot Lobby is Running


Two years ago, a cloud threatened to cast a shadow over the Sunshine State — a cloud of medical marijuana, which would have become legal if Floridians had voted to ratify Amendment 2. Although the measure narrowly failed to clear the 60 percent threshold needed to become law in 2014, Amendment 2 is back on the ballot this year, and the ad campaign against it is back on the air.

Last time, the “No on 2” campaign, bankrolled by Las Vegas billionaire Sheldon Adelson, suggested that if medical marijuana were legalized, pot cookies would become “the new face of date rape.” This summer, the no campaign is out with a new round of over-the-top TV spots. New Times Broward Palm Beach ranked the five funniest ones so far in this election cycle.
