Facebook Censors Marijuana Legalization
By James Wilson

From FireDogLake and Just Say Now:

After our ads with the Just Say Now logo of marijuana leaf ran more than 38 million times, Facebook flip-flopped and banned all images of marijuana from its ads.

Sign our petition to Facebook to protest this censorship:

Marijuana legalization is a critical issue facing our country. Clear majorities in states across the country support legalizing marijuana. 

 

By censoring marijuana leaves, Facebook is banning political speech. This is unfair, and unacceptable. 

Facebook should reverse its decision and allow the free discussion of US drug policy that the country is ready for. 

Add your name [here]. We'll send the petition to Facebook and let the media know how strongly people feel about this important issue.

DownsizeDC.org's view on drugs was expressed in this essay last year.

We have also posted this announcement on our Facebook page, which we invite you to check out and "like."
