California voters are expected to vote Yes on recreational marijuana legalization this election. And if that happens, a new wave of marketing will erupt to sell the product.

But some are calling for advertising restrictions on the recreational pot, much like surgeon general’s warnings on cigarettes and alcohol. Opponents of such warnings argue that it’s just another way to regulate the industry.

What do you think of the way recreational pot should be marketed? Should it be put in the same category as cigarettes and alcohol?
