Last month, we told you about New Times regular Robert Platshorn's latest effort to spread the word on medical marijuana. Since late 2012, the former drug smuggler turned activist has been buying up TV time on local stations for an infomercial.
Provocatively titled "Should Grandma Smoke Pot?," the spot aims to educate the elderly on the pros of medicinal legalization, an extension of Platshorn's popular "Silver Tour."
So far, Bobby Tuna has bought airtime in the Tampa area and here in South Florida. His eye has always been on exporting the message to other markets in the Sunshine State.
In the past week or so, it seemed that he'd crack the Orlando market on WKCF, a Hearst Television-owned CW affiliate. But at the last minute, the deal fell apart.
