Marijuana and Alcohol Pairing in Cannabis Advertising



The marijuana industry and proponents like to state that marijuana is a much “safer” and “less harmful” alternative to using other substances, particularly alcohol.


That’s why I found a recent marijuana advertisement discussing marijuana and beer pairings so interesting.


Take a look at this recent marijuana ad and let me know if you believe the cannabis industry wants marijuana to be used as a substitute for, or in combination with, alcohol.


Keep in mind research shows that even a small amount of marijuana and alcohol together increases crash risk greater than either marijuana or alcohol use alone (http://www.fsijournal.org/article/S0379-0738(14)00535-0/abstract).

  1. Ultimately, this argument ends up being a specious one. Though many advocates do say that it is safer than alcohol use or the use of harder drugs, it is a little naïve to think that alcohol or even marijuana producers will not sell marijuana the same way anything else is sold. The goal of these producers is to make money, which I think is the overarching problem.
