Authorities in Örebro, Sweden issued a warning to the Body Shop for promoting their line of hemp skin care products with the image of a hemp leave on the Ads.
According to Karin Wickberg Taylar, press spokesperson for The Body Shop Sweden, The Authorities, “argued that the use of the hemp leaf in the posters was offensive and provocative and that it undermined their work to tackle youth drug abuse.”.
