Jay Z’s new cannabis brand, Monogram, recently launched an ad campaign to address some of the nation’s most absurd but still functioning laws in states where cannabis is prohibited.
These ads were rolled out on billboards and online stating things such as:
“You can marry your first cousin in more states than you can buy recreational weed”
“There’s a state in America where cannibalism is technically legal but cannabis isn’t”
“If you use a flamethrower to light a joint, you can be arrested in 17 states. But not for the flamethrower”
And our favorite: “The War on Drugs worked, if systemic racism was the goal”
Jay Z said in a statement, “I created this campaign to amplify the voices of those who have been penalized for the very same thing that venture capitalists are now prospering from with the emerging legal cannabis market,”
“Far too often we forget that these are real people whose everyday lives and futures have been affected by this outdated legislature.”
This is a poignant yet brilliant campaign that highlights the hypocrisy and contradiction of cannabis laws in America.
