A new nonprofit organization, USVINORML is being organized. We have put advertisements in other VI papers without a problem. The AVIS turned us away.
The add was seeking Board members and Officers for a newly formed 401c corp who seeks to allow safe access to medical cannabis, decriminalize small amounts of cannabis possessed by responsible adults and an allowance for use when associated with religioys practices.

The reason for the denial is that the AVIS doesn't support our cause. Is this legal? Other advertisers that use that use the AVIS sells smoking paraphenalia, alcohol, cigaretts and other products than have been proven to be harmfull.
Cannibis has been used as a remedy for over 4000 years, not one death can be attributed to it's use. It is time for change and to bring the law of the VI in line with the rest of the world.
