Perhaps the reason TV stations do not run pro-marijuana ads is that
they still believe the racist propaganda used to outlaw cannabis to
begin with:

Marihuana influences Negroes to look at white people in the eye, step
on white men's shadows and look at a white woman twice." (Hearst
newspapers nationwide, 1934)

There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are
Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music,
jazz and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana can cause
white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and
any others."

. the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the
degenerate races." (Federal Bureau of Narcotics Director Harry J.
Anslinger, 1930)

Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men." (Federal
Bureau of Narcotics Director Harry J. Anslinger, 1929) "Marijuana is
an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality
and death."

Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of

[Smoking] one [marihuana] cigarette might develop a homicidal mania,
probably to kill his brother."

claims are the basis for marijuana prohibition.
