Google Lifting Ban On Addiction Center Ads

This issue reminds me of that sketchy commercial for Passages Malibu where the guy says "I was an addict for 10 years, now I'm not." Doesn't say the program helped him, he just said.."now I'm not."

Google  will now allow ads to run on addiction-related keywords and phrases after a nearly year-long ban instituted to crack down on shady providers cashing in on vulnerable patients. A small group of providers vetted by a third party have been approved by the company to appear in results for searches like “help quitting pills” or “meth addiction.”
