First TV Ad Released for Marijuana Legalization in Oregon

With ballots set to be mailed to voters in Oregon in just a few weeks, the marijuana legalization campaign behind Initiative 91 released their first TV ad. According to the campaign, the ad is part of a $2 million advertising blitz and will run on stations all over the state.

The ad “It’s About Time” features retired police veteran Pete Tutmark talking about how much time and money is wasted on marijuana arrests. Time that could be spent on serious crimes. It is obviously targeted at those undecideds who may not particularly like adults using marijuana, but also think it is not something so many law enforcement resources should be used to stop.

Highlighting the support of a former cop is a smart choice since most of their organized opposition is coming from the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association, which recently donated $100,000 to fight to maintain prohibition.
