United for Care Sends Cease-and-Desist Letter to TV Stations to Pull Ad

Recently, television stations have been airing an ad from anti-medical marijuana group No on 2 titled "It's Nuts." The ad claims, among other things, that voting yes on Amendment 2 will legalize pot and that kids will be able to get weed on their own "without their parents' permission."

In response, United for Care has sent a cease-and-desist letter to every television station that is broadcasting the ad, claiming the 30 second ad is misleading and false.

Federal law says that the FCC has the responsibility to prevent commercials that spew illegitimate claims from airing.
