NYC Subways Ban Cannabis And Psychedelic Mushroom Ads

CANNANNEW REPORT

Marijuan Moment reports New York’s Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) on Wednesday moved to explicitly ban advertising for marijuana and psychedelic mushrooms in its subways, buses and trains. The advertising policy update comes after MTA reached a settlement in a case related to a sexual wellness brand that’s been ongoing for the past three years. While the company in that case, Dame, will be permitted to advertise under certain restrictions, the public transit agency decided that marijuana and psychedelics are off limits. “The revised policy includes certain provisions that were part of past policies (with some amendments), and adds new restrictions based on changed circumstances,” MTA said. “For example, the revised Advertising Policy explicitly bars advertising for cannabis products, following the decriminalization of recreational use of such products in New York State.” In November 2021, the MTA Board revised its policy for ads that are displayed in and on MTA facilities. It adopted revised standards for what ads are permitted and what ads are prohibited. As in previous versions, the MTA Advertising Policy now permits only commercial ads, governmental notices or messages, or certain public service announcements.   The revised policy includes certain provisions that were part of past policies (with some amendments), and adds new restrictions based on changed circumstances. For example, the revised Advertising Policy explicitly bars advertising for cannabis products, following the decriminalization of recreational use of such products in New York State. Here’s the new drug-related advertising policy in full:  “MTA will not accept any advertisement for display in or on the Property if it falls within one or more of the following categories of prohibited advertising… 16. Promotes tobacco, nicotine, or any tobacco-related or nicotine-related product; any alcohol product; cannabis or any cannabis-related product; or hallucinogenic mushrooms or hallucinogenic mushroom-related product.” MTA Advertising Policy 11.17.21 Read more    https://www.marijuanamoment.net/nyc-subways-ban-marijuana-and-psychedelic-mushroom-ads/
