It could be bye bye for roadside advertising for cannabis in California. We imagine some of the big cannabis delivery players will be challenging this one. Karen Velie reports for CalCoastal News that A San Luis Obispo County judge ruled Friday that cannabis billboards on California’s interstate highways and some state highways are prohibited by Proposition 64, a voter initiative approved in 2016. Velie writes California’s Business and Professions Code bars marijuana businesses from advertising on “state or interstate highways which cross the California border.” The California Bureau of Cannabis Control interpreted the law to mean billboards could be used to advertise marijuana businesses on interstate highways as long as they were not within 15 miles of the border.
