The legality of cannabis for general or recreational use varies from country to country.
Possession of cannabis is illegal in most countries as a result of the agreement about Indian hemp, also known as hashish, in the International Opium Convention (1925). However, many countries have decriminalized the possession of small quantities of cannabis.
Some states in the US allow use of medical cannabis in state, territorial, Indian reservation, and Federal district laws, although the use is illegal by federal law. Federal agencies claim that federal law comes first.
Tylenol’s #HowWeFamily Campaign Uses LGBT Couples To Portray Changing Face Of The Family
WHEN WERE YOU FIRST CONSIDERED A FAMILY?
When you fell in love?
When you married?
When you had kids?
Gay and lesbian couples feature prominently in Tylenol’s new #HowWeFamily campaign, which aims to celebrate the diversity of modern families.
A same-sex prom couple and two gay dads are among those featured in the campaign’s first TV ad, which is directed by Academy Award winner Dustin Lance Black and is slated to begin airing on TV next week.
The clip launches a three-month effort that will include profiles of 10 real-life U.S. families, a “docu-short” on the changing face of the American family and the results of a national survey on families. Each of these components will soon be found on a microsite.
A voice-over declares,
“Family isn’t defined by who you love, but how.”
Manoj Raghunandanan, Senior Director of Marketing for Johnson and Johnson’s McNeil Consumer Healthcare, told Advertising Age that the ad was representative of his company’s commitment to celebrating how “families look and feel different now than they did before.”
He added, “Because we’re a family brand, because we’re an iconic American brand, and we want to continue to serve families into the future, I think it’s important that we reflect what that family is today.”
The campaign’s spokeswomen are “Bring It On” actress Gabrielle Union and psychiatrist and columnist Gail Saltz.
