WeedWeek reporter Hilary Corrigan looks at the industry's hope to advertise on Facebook and Google, and the tech giants' desultory response:
“What we want to see is the recognition of the states’ rights and recognition of the businesses’ rights” to advertise, said Sean Lucas, vice president of Nug Digital Marketing.
But Lucas hasn’t even seen communication between state regulatory bodies and the tech titans. “It’s just not happening,” Lucas said. “It’s gonna take some lobbying.”
Facebook seems a bit more open to the discussion.
