Facebook has become one of the most popular tools in the world for collecting info and linking to like-minded groups or individuals. Sadly, Facebook has a history of actions and policies that adversely impact state-licensed marijuana businesses and cannabis policy reform supporters, even as most of U.S. states have actually lawfully regulated cannabis for medical or adult usage through laws that continue to see growing public assistance.
In addition to turning down marketing from legal marijuana organisations, Facebook is also unfairly suspending pages and/or “ shadow prohibiting” search results page for legally-operating businesses and organizations < a href=" https://www.facebook.com/pages/AZmarijuanacom/173033339405241" target =" _ blank” rel=” noopener” > like ours on its platform, making it difficult for advocates to discover us and see our material. On the other hand, Facebook never suspends or prohibits cannabis prohibitionists from their platform.
Facebook needs to know better. Poll after survey shows that an overwhelming bulk of Americans oppose cannabis prohibition. Dozens of states have actually legalized marijuana in one type or another. By limiting legal marijuana businesses and advocacy companies from totally using their website, Facebook is siding with prohibitionists.
