    WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- - An anti-medical marijuana group is making new claims that legalizing pot could lead to date rape.

    The group 'No On 2' recently posted an ad on Facebook asking, “Will the new face of date rape look like a cookie?” The ad shows a man and a woman hugging with an arrow pointing to a Photoshopped pot cookie in the pocket of the man.

    “I absolutely thought it was fake. I thought it was a joke,” said Florida State Senator Jeff Clemens, who is in support of medical marijuana.

    The ad is in reaction to Amendment 2, which is on the Florida ballot for November. If passed, it would legalize medical marijuana.

    Clemens said he cannot believe 'No On 2' would post such an ad.

    “I think any woman should find that offensive to somehow suggest that if you use medical marijuana to deal with a health issue that you’re trying to deal with that somehow that’s going to make you more susceptible to rape. It’s really beyond the pale,” said Clemens.

    On the 'No On 2' Facebook page, hundreds commented on the ad. Many claimed the ad was inappropriate.

    'No On 2' released this statement:

    “Today’s pot cookies and other pot candy is not your daddy’s pot brownie from the 60s, 70s and 80s. Amendment 2 allows for marijuana products and the idea of a pot cookie with this high level THC being abused is scary and dangerous,” wrote Javi Correoso, a spokesperson with 'No On 2.'

    Clemens, who said he is behind Amendment 2, said he does not think voters will buy the message displayed in the recent ad when they hit the polls in a few months.

    “They understand that this is medicine that can help people and that it’s not going to lead people to the kind of things that that campaign is alleging,” said Clemens.

    Yes, because there aren't already thousands of legal substances that are better for date rape and could fit into a cookie.
