Montel Williams Calls for Racist Anti-Medical Marijuana Ad to Be Pulled

LITTLE ROCK, AR–(ENEWSPF)–October 28, 2012. This morning we became aware of a TV ad the Arkansas Family Council has put on YouTube, and apparently made a very small ad buy for, in opposition to Issue 5 that features several actors. The one African-American actor was depicted as a criminal drug dealer behind a table with guns. This imagery has no place in the debate on medical cannabis and is clearly racist, and other claims made are as offensive. We call on them to pull it, rather than attempt to justify it—if they won’t, stations should refuse to air it. This debate is about the relief of suffering. We shouldn’t forget that.
