Illegal Ads

Is Lil Wayne's image on Perris billboards

in violation of California's cannabis marketing restrictions?

The pot stores in Perris are the top local, single advertiser for Lamar billboards in 2020 -- so far. Positioned along the I-215 freeway Perris corridor, in March an InterChurch News hard count of cannabis ads found an astonishing 20 billboards along the north and southbound lanes that advertised cannabis shops -- all located in the Perris industrial park area.   

The cannabis signage has since simmered down. However, digital billboards, like the Lamar billboard above using the LIL WAYNE image near Ethanac Avenue -- can advertise seven or more different cannabis-related ads. 

Billboard ads must follow California Business and Professions Code regarding Cannabis Advertising and Marketing Restrictions, including:

  • All advertisements and marketing shall accurately and legibly identify the licensee and the licensee's license number
  • Cannabis-type ads can only be displayed where 71.6 percent of the audience is reasonably expected to be 21 years of age or older
  • Shall not advertise in a manner intended to encourage persons under 21 years of age to consume cannabis or cannabis products
  • Shall not publish advertising that is attractive to children
  • Shall not advertise or market cannabis or cannabis products on an advertising sign within 1,000 feet of a day care center, school providing instruction in kindergarten or any grades 1 to 12, inclusive, playground, or youth center 
  • Shall not advertise while the licensee's license is suspended
