Alcohol brands can plaster their logos all over race cars, and gun nuts can sponsor races, but if you pay to show an ad attempting to educate NASCAR fans on the benefits of weed, they'll pull it.
The Marijuana Policy Project paid $2,200 to run a pro-pot commercial (seen above) 72 times outside of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, home of this Sunday's Brickyard 400. After board operator Mike Estojak was made aware of the terrifying propaganda brainwashing the masses about their perception of weed, he killed it.
An unnamed spokesman for Gracie Media, the company that hired Estojak for the event, released a statement on the issue. "We in no way support marijuana at family events," said the spokesman. "We didn’t expect this ad to be interpreted the way it did. We don’t want anything to do with it anymore."
Weed? At a NASCAR race??? Get that tool of Satan out of here. Let me enjoy my booze in peace at this family event, thank you very much.
