Announcing the New Just Say Now Store – Already Banned by Facebook

Just Say Now Store promo adWe’re pleased to announce the brand-new online store from Just Say Now, our new effort with Students for Sensible Drug Policy to reform marijuana laws. Featured in our store are hemp t-shirts, hemp tote bags, stickers, pins, t-shirts – just about everything you need to show your support for legalizing marijuana and support our organizing to pass marijuana ballot initiatives in November.

Of course, Facebook isn’t happy. After the social network banned our ads last month for showing a marijuana leaf, we decided to play by their rules and not show leafs in our ads. So we submitted ads to Facebook for our Just Say now store, but blurred out the pot leafs so you couldn’t see the obviously offensive plant leaf.

Not good enough, said Facebook. Even though we complied with Facebook’s censorship of pot leafs, all of our ads were rejected. And the rejection came with some blatantly false statements, and a harsh warning.

The content advertised by this ad is restricted per section 5 of Facebook’s Advertising Guidelines. We reserve the right to determine what advertising we accept, and will not allow the creation of any further Facebook Ads of this type. Ads for this product, service or site should not be resubmitted.

Facebook is making yet another political decision to ban Just Say Now from advertising our campaign for marijuana legalization on the social networking site.

Please check out our new Just Say Now store. All proceeds from our store go to support our efforts to pass marijuana initiatives in 2010. You’ll spread the word about our campaign, and support our organizing at the same time. It’s a win-win for legalizing marijuana – even if Facebook won’t let us show you our store.

Here’s a smattering of the products available in our store (after the jump). . . .
