Holy Smokes: the first full-page ad for marijuana hits New York

I’m dubbing this advertising’s finest moment.
Snoop agrees. ‪#JustSayKnow

Big boom for Denver agency Redrag & Bull. Their approach: there’s a leaf for every symptom, you just need to know.

It’s medical and as legal as any other over-the-counter suspects: uppers, downers, screamers and sleepers. No more pills for them headaches, backaches, depression, appetite loss. This also comes with FREE make-your-world-more-funny goggles. Me likey.

So what do these pot loving digital hipsters do? Leafly provides information about different pot strains and where to buy them. That’s being in the know. All made possible  via their app and website. Helpful stuff. Literally 🙂 They have run a few ads before, none this big or this ‘addy’.

Now waiting for this to go international.
