Legislation Bans Marijuana Billboards

Legislation is making its way through both the Michigan House and the Senate that would restrict marijuana advertisements on billboards. The House bill is sponsored by East Lansing Democrat Andy Schor. Grand Ledge Republican Rick Jones authored the Senate bill. He spoke with WKZO News about it.

“It does not allow any advertising of marijuana, similar to cigarettes,” Jones said.

Jones says his bill and Schor’s bill had shared inspiration. He says billboards like that could encourage children to use marijuana. The Jones bill is out of committee and is being considered by the full Senate.
