Last week we hosted a webinar with Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth on the subject of cannabis and CBD products. We also noted that New York is likely to legalize recreational marijuana during this legislative session. Nonetheless, marijuana and CBD products containing more than 0.3% THC content remain illegal under federal law. Noted communications attorney Frank Montero stated:
“That’s why law firms like Fletcher, Heald & Hildreth caution broadcasters to steer clear of ads for marijuana, defined as a cannabis plant or derivative with a THC level greater than 0.3%. “As things currently stand, the advice we have received from the FCC is you’re best off not taking [marijuana] advertising,” Montero said.
