Colorado’s Highway Cleanup Program Offers Advertising Loophole for Pot Businesses

Pot businesses in Colorado have discovered that the state’s highway cleanup sponsorship program offers a loophole to a ban on outdoor advertising by the industry. Under state regulations, marijuana companies are prohibited from advertising on billboards, taxis, bus benches, or other media “visible to members of the public from any street, sidewalk, park, or other public place.”

But that ban does not include participation in the state’s Sponsor a Highway program. Under the program, “community and civic organizations, businesses, non-profit organizations, and private citizens” can pay for a state conract0r to conduct the litter cleanup of a particular stretch of state roadway. The fee for the sponsorship varies with the amount of traffic flow on the road.

With a highway sponsorship, companies get a sign proclaiming their participation placed along the roadway by the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT). The signs, which are five feet wide and four feet high, include space for the sponsoring company’s name or logo. Even with that included space, the “signs are not intended to be an advertising medium, or any kind of forum for public speech or political opinion,” according to the CDOT.

Pot Signs Proliferating

There are more than 280 of the signs across the state, and nearly half contain the logo of cannabis businesses, according to a report in local media. Katrina Apodaca, an assistant manager at the NuVue Dispensary on the outskirts of Pueblo, says the highway sponsorship program gives her business an opportunity to get its name out in the community.

“That kind of gives us a little bit of advertisement to say, ‘Hey, we’re here, we’re in this local area, come see us today,’” said Apodaca. “Since we put those up since last year … it has been a great impact.  Since last October, our sales increased by 103 percent.”

Michelle Peulen, a spokesperson for CDOT, said that the sponsorship program benefits both businesses and the state’s transportation department. With the program, sponsors get a venue for public exposure while the state receives a new source of revenue with which to carry out its operations.

“Most folks are interested in making sure that we’re keeping Colorado clean and keeping those roadways clean, and this program offers us a venue to have additional funding,” Peulen said.

Peulen also said that CDOT encourages businesses to consider sponsorship as a way of demonstrating that they wish to be responsible members of the community.

“We hope that all businesses take advantage of the (public relations) aspect and show that they’re a good neighbor, that they’re a good steward of the State of Colorado, and we’re all working together to make it the beautiful state that it is,” said Peulen.

Apodaca of NuVue Dispensary said the clean roads that result from the highway sponsorship program are just as important to the company as the public exposure it receives.

“We want to show Pueblo that we’re not here just to sell medicinal marijuana, recreational marijuana. We want to make sure that we’re actually also cleaning up Pueblo as well,” Apodaca said.

At Least 25 People Overdosed on K2 in New Haven, Connecticut This Morning

What began this morning as an outbreak of 15 synthetic cannabinoid overdoses on the New Haven Green in Connecticut has ballooned to a situation involving 25 individuals and counting. The situation is escalating, and emergency crews and officials from New Haven’s fire, medical, and police departments had to cut their press conference with local reporters short as calls kept coming in. This is a developing story, but here’s what we know so far.

New Haven Is In The Middle of a K2 Overdose Outbreak

911 calls reporting drug overdoses began trickling into New Haven’s Fire and EMS Departments late last night. By 8 am this morning, emergency responders had 15 sick individuals on their hands. Some people were passed out, others were vomiting and experiencing severe nausea. New Haven Fire Chief John Alston said that the overdose victims were many different ages.

To deal with that many overdoses, multiple fire departments became involved. Ambulance drivers described passing new overdose cases as they were leaving the scene to transport others to the hospital. During the press conference, Chief Alston praised the coordination with hospitals and the efficiency with which crews executed what became a challenging logistical operation.

The overdose cases strained the resources of New Haven’s emergency responders. Crews had to arrive, resuscitate and transfer people faster than normal, just to have enough ambulances available to deal with the incoming cases.

And the fire still hasn’t burned itself out. New calls continue to come in reporting drug overdoses, and emergency responders, police and other New Haven officials are still at the Green. They say that so far there have been no deaths. Some of the overdose victims are in critical condition, however.

New Haven Officials Suspect K2 Is Causing Overdoses

Right now, New Haven EMS and medical officials cannot confirm what substance more than 20 people overdosed on in New Haven over the last 24 hours. But Chief Medical Expert Dr. Sandy Bogucki suspects the substance is K2.

Dr. Bogucki described K2 as a synthetic cannabinoid related to marijuana and made informally with a cocktail of chemicals and frequently laced with other drugs. People on the New Haven Green told emergency responders that they think the K2 was laced with PCP.

But overdose reactions also suggest the presence of an opioid. Officials aren’t even certain that everyone who overdosed used the same drug. Some people were unconscious or extremely lethargic while others were agitated and experiencing respiratory distress.

First responders gave the overdose victims an emergency dose of Narcan. Narcan is an FDA-approved nasal spray of the drug naloxone, which is an emergency treatment for known or suspected opioid overdose. On the site, crews told reporters that the Narcan had little effect on the sick individuals. At the hospital, however, the patients received higher, repeated doses of Narcan, which produced clinical improvements for some.

New Haven Grapples With Another K2 Epidemic

Today’s incident in the New Haven Green marks the second time just this summer that New Haven has dealt with a serious K2 epidemic. As recently as July 4, High Times reported on 14 synthetic cannabis overdoses split across two clusters of calls. 11 of those overdoses took place on the New Haven Green.

At this morning’s press conference, reporters pressed officials to explain what they were doing to address the K2 problem. Police have staged a constant presence around the Green, yet overdoses continue to occur. So far, police have made just a couple of arrests, though it’s unclear if these are in connection with the K2 overdoses.

Fire Chief John Alston was quick to frame the problem as a nationwide crisis, not confined to New Haven. Alston also mentioned that his department had worked with a Yale Presidential Fellow who studied synthetic cannabinoids and proposed ways to address it. But before Alston could provide details about those efforts, officials’ attention turned to a new round of calls just coming in. Check back as we update you on this ongoing situation.
