California Governor Disapproves Bill For Cannabis Billboards

Many would argue that cannabis businesses require advertising just like any other company, especially since the cannabis industry is one of California’s leading markets. That said, Gov. Gavin Newsom doesn’t seem to approve of cannabis advertisements on highways in the state of California.

On Friday, Newsom declined a bill that allows cannabis billboards along interstate freeways and state highways, except within a 15-mile radius of neighboring states.

In 2019, state regulators approved a set of rules that would clarify advertisement restrictions along highways. However, according to a judge’s order, those rules are now conflicting with state law. The judge also ruled that officials will not be authorized to allow said billboards.

Sponsored by Assemblyman Bill Quirk, Bill AB 1302 expands on allowing advertisements across freeways while prohibiting cannabis billboards within 15 miles of California’s border. After declining the bill, Newsom mentioned in a press release that the proposal would undermine safety regulations in the cannabis legalization ballot measure placed in 2016.
