Ads related to cannabis or narcotic mushrooms are now banned on RV services in New York.
The New York Public Transportation Authority (MTA) updated its advertising policies on November 17, noting that public transit services may not advertise cannabis or cannabis mushrooms. The revised policy includes certain provisions that were part of previous policies (with some modifications), and adds new restrictions based on changing circumstances. For example, the revised Advertising Policy expressly prohibits advertising of cannabis products, following the decriminalization of recreational use of these products in New York State, ” MTA Books on its website.
The revised advertising policy states that the ban applies to anything: “promotes tobacco, nicotine, or any product related to nicotine or tobacco; any cannabis alcohol product or any product related to cannabis; or hallucinogenic mushrooms or products related to hallucinogenic mushrooms.”

A complaint was filed by Dame in 2019 when the MTA rejected the company’s advertising efforts, even though the MTA had previously approved suggestive dating apps, Museum of Sex and men’s sexual health products. Dam has argued that banning the company’s sexual health ads is unconstitutional. “Sexual pleasure is an important part of well-being. Rejecting Dame’s advertising space hampers our ability to express the value we provide; to create and develop products for female sexual pleasure; and it imposes sexual shame as a societal norm,” CEO Alexandra Fine said Ms..
She continued, “The Transport and Transport Authority was disproportionately applying its anti-sexual commercial clause to advertisements for female pleasure, which is unconstitutional. They allowed erectile dysfunction advertisements to be shown while denying us, making them a social and economic guardian of those entitled to pleasure. We had to The struggle for our right to advertise and we think this is a step forward in bridging the fun gap.”
Now that cannabis and psychedelic mushrooms have been banned from advertising in New York transit services, it leads to some questions about the future. It is uncertain whether the MTA will evolve or change its policies when New York Recreational cannabis legalization officially launched (It is currently expected to start in 2022, but is subject to change.)

Moreover, support for the legalization of psychedelic mushrooms is Growing all over the country, but it is illegal or decriminalized in only a few cities, such as Denver, Colorado And Oakland, California, and states like Oregon, which decriminalized psilocybin mushrooms in 2020. Psychedelic mushrooms are not currently legal in New York, so there is no legal market to promote the sale of mushrooms.
