The State Senate Judiciary Committee passed legislation that bans billboard advertising for medical marijuana. Senator Rick Jones (R-24), Senate Judiciary Committee chair and bill sponsor, said in a press release that the legislation is in line with a similar ban on tobacco billboard advertising.  SB 463 bans billboards for medical marijuana, dispensaries and businesses that provide access to the drug and imposes minimum penalties of $5,000 per each day of violation. The bill now goes to the full Senate committee chamber for a vote.
