A 2016 ballot initiative that legalized the sale of pot for recreational use was supposed to ban this type of advertising.  Proponents of the ballot gave voters the impression that children wouldn’t see such ads. The Bureau of Cannabis Control, a regulatory agency,  violated terms of Proposition 64.
