NPR Along with Mother Jones Snickers at Humboldt’s “Flower” Ads
Ads from Trim Scene Solutions, a business based in Southern Humboldt, and Royal Gold Potting Soil, an Arcata company got a nod on NPR today. Can you hear any more local ads and voices in the radio piece below? (Note: The voice of at least one employee of Lost Coast Communications, Mo Burke, appears on the Trim Scene Ad.)
A couple of weeks ago, Mother Jones’ magazine highlighted more Humboldt ads that appear to be attempting to reach marijuana growers.
NPR questions a lawyer about the legality of these kinds of advertisements and looks at how the FCC might view such colorful attempts to market to one of the main drivers of our local economy.
