A Super Bowl advertisement detailing how cannabis can save lives has been rejected by CBS, but viewers can judge the controversial clip for themselves.
The commercial, produced by Acreage Holdings, focuses on three people who depend on medical marijuana to improve their daily quality of life.
It explains how a young boy with seizures, a man addicted to opioids, and an amputated military veteran can dramatically ease their conditions by using cannabis as medicine.
Acreage Holdings offered to pay $5 million to run the ad, but CBS rejected the 60-second clip after they received a preliminary storyboard, citing that the television network does not accept any type of cannabis-related advertising.
