Facebook Nips Marijuana Legalization Ads In the Bud

Facebook may have unrivaled access to young, liberal voters, but the social networking site is now ensuring those potential supporters of pot legalization never see a marijuana leaf in political ads on the site. While critics are pulling out the online petitions and accusations of censorship, Facebook has not relented.

Facebook banned ads that featured the image of a marijuana leaf submitted by at least three groups: the Libertarian Party, the District of Columbia's Patient Cooperative, and Just Say Now, a political coalition advocating legalization of pot in states with ballot measures like California's Prop 19.
