As previously reported by The Cannabist, ABC affiliate KMGH-Channel 7 was going to broadcast an ad for a cannabis-oil vape pen this week before “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

However, the station changed its plans to run the 15-second spot for Neos vape pens and another commercial for marijuana retailer The Green Solution after parent company E.W. Scripps stepped in. E.W. Scripps said in a statement the organization is “proud to be a company of free speech and open expression, but we have concerns about the lack of clarity around federal regulations that govern broadcast involving such ads.”

The ads are now circulating on the Internet.

To view the ad for The Green Solution, head over to Youtube.
