With marijuana legalization increasing across the country, it’s sparking more than one conversation about the business side of the product. I work in the marketing field, so this article from AdAge really got me thinking. Are we ready for branded and advertised pot? http://www.adweek.com/news/advertising-branding/are-americans-ready-marijuana-advertising-151198 Another recent article in USA Today really drives home at what age pot should be accessible http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2013/07/16/marijuana-legalization-kids-parents/2519339/
I have my own views on all these issues, and regardless of having a pothead son (said half with endearment and half with, you know, a smidge of snarkiness), my views remain open minded and I seek to be informed if only to better understand what’s going on.
What do you think? How do you keep informed?
