Mettrum ad ? appropriateness
« on: March 11, 2014, 22:08:22 »
Just wondering if the Mettrum ad for medicinal marihuana had gone through any kind of a review process before going up? While I have no problem with it either way, it may strike some as contradictory to the drug policies of the Canadian Armed forces.

Mettrum was explicitly approved. While the content of the ad may be iffy to some, they are a direct pay advertiser. The way I see it is that I'd rather draw funds from an advertiser than from the membership.

Perhaps now is the time to subscribe, so Mike is not beholden to any 'questionable' advertisers.  :whistle:


Thank you Mettrum   :nod:
