New York Transit Rules Now Prohibit Marijuana Ads On Subways, Buses

Updated ad guidelines bar both any ads related to marijuana or magic mushrooms

An updated version of the New York Metropolitan Transit Authority’s advertising policies now includes a ban on marijuana product ads on subways and buses.

According to Morning Brew, the updated guidelines were released after the settlement of a lawsuit in which sex-tech company Dame claimed the institution’s ban on sex-related ads were discriminatory.

Marijuana had not merited a specific mention in previous versions of the MTA’s rules, but the updated regulations bar any ads related to marijuana or hallucinogenic mushrooms.
