KEGA-FM in Salt Lake City has pulled an ad opposing Utah’s Proposition 2. According to The Salt Lake Tribune the station received complaints that the commercial airing included false and misleading statements about medical marijuana. The Drug Safe Utah coalition was paying for the ads.
Broadway Media president Kayvon Motiee told the paper, “We want to pull the ad until we can substantiate the truthfulness. All in all, we had 53 complaints over the weekend about it.”
The Tribune says FCC records show that Drug Safe Utah also purchased ads on KSL and on Talk Radio KNRS-FM.
