The first nationwide marijuana commercial in Canada has aired. The ad was supplied by The Cannabis Growers of Canada and included mention of the 17,000 marijuana farms across the country.
The commercial boasts British Columbia’s beautiful landscape and the impeccable care that is given to the land. It also mentions the well-known marijuana strain, BC Bud, which is said to be the best in British Columbia. According to SF Gate, The Cannabis Growers of Canada wish to sway public opinions about marijuana.
In the commercial, it says, “We are the Cannabis Growers of Canada. We create wealth, opportunity and good-paying private sector jobs. We are joining together to build a free and fair cannabis market that benefits all communities.”
A Cannabis Growers of Canada spokesperson said, “Recent regulatory changes are inadequate for supplying approved patients with the medicine they require and the CGC is joining their struggle to maintain access to safe and effective cannabis.”
The commercial debuted last month. Since then, it has gained nearly 1.8 million views on Facebook.
