Will adwords do me any good. Is marijuana growing information banned?

I give information on growing organic medical marijuana. I live in a state where marijuana is legal, Colorado. Will my site be banned? I'm not selling a product of my own. Will adwords do me any good or do you have to have a product for sale?

Hello ;
This is a nice question...
Medicinal marijuana can be promoted on Adwords only by medical clinics which treat patients by medicinal marijuana.
Previously, when asked, Google submitted this official reply:

 

  • "Ads for medical marijuana clinics are designated as non-family safe and must comply with all our existing AdWords policies, and with any applicable laws. We don't allow ads for sites that sell medical marijuana or marijuana paraphernalia."

Google won't allow marijuana advertising medical or recreational in the states where one or both are legal. I know, I used to make a lot of money off marijuana adsense until Google pulled the plug on us hard working legal advertisers. Shame on Google for this.
