Acreage Cannabis produced a one-minute commercial, intending to air it during the Superbowl. The ad consists of testimonials of people who've been helped by medical marijuana. CBS rejected the ad without explaining why. From CNN:

CBS (CBS) did not comment when asked why it declined to run the commercial. But a source close to the network said that it does not currently accept any cannabis-related advertising.
