A Progressive Company Like Google Chooses at This Time to Ignore Science

A Progressive Company Like Google Chooses at This Time to Ignore Science

This was the letter Google sent us below. I tried to clear up the problem with the ad. I couldn’t find which ad was the problem, so I called Google. What they told me is that medical marijuana is not something that they will approve for adwords any longer. Google grouped illegal recreational drugs with illegal marijuana and medical marijuana all in the same category. Even though we have a legal corporation and sellers permit for medical marijuana in California. They classify it as;

Dangerous products or services….really?

I noticed it was not just us, but everybody in medical marijuana is now excluded. We have been incorporated since 2008 and now Google changes it’s direction.
It’s unfortunate that a progressive company like Google chooses  to ignore science  and to be  clearly on the wrong side of history. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/18/marijuana-brain-cancer_n_6181060.html
It appears  they have been bought out by big pharma. Why else would they make an abrubt change as silly as this? 
A google representative confirmed that they do not differentiae between illegal or legal marijuana.
This will keep many sick people with “cancer” and numerous other conditions from finding the medicine they need to help them be well.
Maybe Google could require some regulation like showing a collectives “sellers permit” or legal corporation documents before assuming that we are doing something inappropriate.
This does feel like one more of those discrimination devices against our industry that we will have to overcome.
Thanks Google for pulling the plug on our dreams of helping  people find their holistic means to getting well.
