"Buddy the Bear" advertises marijuana

From KING 5:


Buddy is a guy in a green bear suit, reminiscent of artwork associated with The Grateful Dead. He waves to people heading in and out of town while wearing a sandwich board advertising the dispensary's "discreet delivery."  The service bills itself as an answer for patients who aren’t comfortable walking into a marked dispensary.

Beavers (the dispensary owner) says her business is no different than Dominos Pizza, and she should be able to advertise the same way.

"Advertising is extremely important. Word of mouth will only get you so far in this business," she said.

Beavers concedes her dancing bear may appeal to children, but that’s not the intent.
