Jay-Z’s new cannabis brand, Monogram, just unveiled a classy, black-and-white ad campaign calling out the ridiculous laws still on the books in some states where cannabis is still illegal.

The ads were posted by an ad agency called Mischief @ No Fixed Address, and, in partnership with Jay-Z’s Monogram, they have rolled out a line of digital and billboard ads that point out that in areas where cannabis has yet to be legalized, acts like marrying cousins, texting and driving, having relations with farm animals, and practicing cannibalism are still legal. 

Contrasted with these facts are images of people who have faced cannabis-related charges, highlighting the start contrast of how marginalized people, especially people of color, are treated in America thanks to the ongoing war on drugs. 

These ads are being displayed in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Chicago, Miami, Washington, D.C., and hopefully more cities soon, as the campaigns get noticed and gain traction.

Inconsistent Cannabis Laws In The States

While many states, and the entire country of Canada, have embraced full cannabis legalization, other states are still holding off, and many areas with legal cannabis still have work to do when it comes to expunging past cannabis charges. The ad campaign wants to highlight this contradiction.
