Did Comcast Refuse This Chicago Cannabis Conference Commercial?

"As the rules for a state medical marijuana pilot program are being finalized, a group of proponents has announced that a cannabis conference will be held in Chicago in June," the Tribune reports.

"Don't be shy. It's OK to talk about marijuana - cannabis," Amish Parikh, vice president of My Compassion, the Michigan-based nonprofit that is hosting the June 7-8 conference at Navy Pier, said.

But Comcast doesn't feel the same way, the conference organizers claim.

"Comcast was to allow this commercial to play in Chicago but has since declined the idea stating it was too controversial," My Compassion said Tuesday on YouTube.

"We are not understanding how killing cancer or stopping seizures in epileptic children are too controversial."

Comcast, to my knowledge, has not responded.

Here is the commercial that was apparently declined:
