Oklahoma Medical Marijuana Dispensary Billboard
The world of medical marijuana has brought another interesting trend with Oklahoma seeing its first billboard. According to the Tulsa World, there has been a new medical marijuana billboard which has arisen. The billboard for an Oklahoma medical marijuana business has rustled some families who do not want their children to see advertisements for such businesses. The story in the Tulsa World article which describes the experience of a Texas family who was driving through the Sooner state and felt uncomfortable by the questions the billboard raised with their children.
That being said, the billboard does thread a fine line which businesses advertising their products of medical marijuana carefully and thoughtfully. There must be a way for Oklahoma medical marijuana dispensaries to reach patients. With that said, there must be an effort to curve advertising to minors and restricting it where reasonably possible. That is the fine line which must be taken into consideration when advertising medical marijuana. Luckily, studies show that teenage and underage usage of cannabis has actually dropped when the plant is properly regulated such as what we have with Oklahoma medical marijuana. In closing, if you are on your way to The Peak Dispensary in Pauls Valley, also known as The Valley Dispensary, you may see the billboard along the I-35 corridor.
