Regular readers of The 420 Times online are very familiar with the ongoing federal medical marijuana crackdown; no other story has been covered more on this site in the last year.
Apparently aware of the bad press they have been getting on the issue and in an attempt to sway some votes from those who are deciding on marijuana law reform measures in states like Colorado, the Obama campaign released a new online ad promoting their web coverage of the Democratic National Convention. Featuring former White House Employee Kal Penn as Kumar, along with Harold, the ad is abundant with marijuana culture references, including munchies, love of cartoons and the “Harold and Kumar” movies themselves.
Will it work? Can medical marijuana patients overlook Obama’s transgressions because of a hip online commercial?
