        Rizla was just cigarette papers. Now they have the big ones for joints like all the paper companies.

          Here is marijuana legal Colorado, the advertising of the product is HEAVILY regulated and nearly non-existent. Only place I see it is on the Adopt a Road signs and the back of the local "Alternative" paper Westword! So, I wouldn't expect to see the industry doing much advertising unless/until the product becomes nationally legalized.

          Stole our country from the Indians
          With god on our side and guns in our hands
          We took it for our own!

              Even though it's legal up here now you can't advertise it at all (same as tobacco) so I would imagine that when it becomes legal across the United States (if it ever does) then they would adopt similar stringent rules on advertising.

                There's carcinogens in the smoke, same as w/ tobacco so there would be rules, for sure. Ever since the Commonwealth expanded medical cannabis use to include dry leaf there's been radio advertising for medical marijuana dispensaries here in W. PA. Some righteous medicine for sure.

                OT Update- Unlike Colorado's recreational scene there's no edibles available with THC content here simply for kicking back...yet. Both our Governor and Auditor General are salivating over the more than $500M in new (and politically painless) tax dollars. SB350 introduced by PA Senate to legalize.

Do you think Honda or Chevrolet or Firestone would want to be associated with something that is illegal in a majority of states?? Nope!! My guess is that the Series would also not allow it either. Horrible idea. Why not a methadone car? An Afghan Poppy growers association car? Not going to happen. Good thought and makes for interesting conversation but that's as far as it will get.
                  But that's just my opinion!

                    Sorry to pile on but there's still a lot of misinformation/fear about legal marijuana out there.

                    EDIT: Here's two views on legalization.

                        I saw a huge billboard in Oakland, CA recently.

                          More tar, no nicotine. OTOH edibles have no health issues, AFAIK.

                            The biggest issue seems to be first timers not bothering to properly inform themselves of (or just disregarding) proper use instructions, take too high a dose and freak out. Fortunately there is no toxic dose. Edibles are a 6-8 hour trip.

                              Or at least no toxic dose you could consume without first throwing up from overfilling your stomach .

                              Edibles are a 6-8 hour trip.
                              Depends on the dosage. In my experience, it varied from 3 to 10 hours (of course, that was ll homemade).

                              But I did learn the hard way not to overdo "enhanced" brownies after letting a friend (who turned out to have some significant psychological problems) talk me into.attending a high school picnic at which we knew only 2 people (whom I'd known for exactly 1 hour) .

                              Lying on the ground unable to move or speak while listening to hostile teenagers trash me and my friend was .... interesting.

                                Unfortunate that your friend was a douche. Also unfortunate you missed an opportunity to possibly make some new friends.
