We’re pleased to announce the brand-new online store from Just Say Now. Featured in our store are hemp t-shirts, hemp tote bags, stickers, pins, t-shirts – just about everything you need to show your support for legalizing marijuana and support our organizing to pass marijuana ballot initiatives in November. Even though we complied with Facebook’s censorship of pot leafs, all of our ads for the Just Say Now store were rejected. And the rejection came with some blatantly false statements, and a harsh warning.

Social news aggregator Reddit.com today agreed to host for free advertisements from marijuana advocacy group Just Say Now, after Conde Nast, the site’s parent company rejected all marijuana legalization display ads.
The Reddit community revolted to the censorship, with hundreds of users saying they’d turn on “ad blockers” to deny Reddit and Conde Nast ad revenue. After several hours of pressure from community members, Reddit issued a statement to its community and challenged its parent company’s decision.

Hot on the heels of Facebook censoring marijuana leafs in ads on the social network, and Google’s decision to accept and run nearly identical ads, a third major Internet site took a side on legalization ads.
Social news site Reddit, owned by publishing company Conde Nast, told Just Say Now that the site would not run any display advertising relating to marijuana legalization.

Good news from Google: the search giant has accepted our marijuana legalization ads.
You can see the censored ads and sign our petition to Facebook protesting their decision here.
The ads were removed by Facebook, which said the ads, which feature a marijuana leaf, was a violation of its policy – a decision the social networking site made after serving no fewer than 38 million impressions of the ads earlier this month. The ads will run on Google’s advertising network immediately.

Facebook is censoring marijuana.
Just last week, the social networking giant abruptly changed its policies and decided to ban images of marijuana leaves from ads, claiming pictures of the plant promote “tobacco products.”
We’re fighting back against Facebook’s censorhip with a massive campaign to call out the social networking site.
