Instagram Purges Multiple Cannabis Brands From The Site

Category: News | Posted on Tue, July, 26th 2016 by THCFinder

Since the first official legalization effort passed in Colorado, cannabis businesses have had a cold welcome from online companies. Google still refuses to allow cannabis-related websites from running on any of their advertising platforms. The same rules apply to Facebook’s ad services, as well. Just to make matters worse, the Facebook-owned sharing site Instagram recently purged several major cannabis brands from their site.

The world’s largest outdoor organic medical cannabis competition The Emerald Cup lost their Instagram, Twitter and Gmail accounts on the same day they planned to announce Damian Marley will perform at their 2016 Cup in December.

Prominent Bay Area cannabis analysis laboratory SC Labs also faced Insta-deletion last week, reports from CCTV state. SC Labs had 10,000 followers — a vital form of currency in the social media age.

Category: News | Posted on Mon, July, 25th 2016 by THCFinder

Although much of the cannabis community has been waiting on bended knee, for the past few months, to learn whether the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will downgrade the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant, a recent report over the agency’s proposed cultivation quota for 2017 suggests that no changes will likely be made in the near future.

It seems that the US government’s leading drug controls are planning to produce around 1,041 pounds of research cannabis next year, slightly less than the 1,451 pounds slated for cultivation in 2016, according to Marijuana.com.

Sockeye, a Portland ad company, takes on marijuana client

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

After working quietly for three years with a marijuana company, a well known ad firm in Portland came out Friday with its first video advertising campaign.

It features a cannabis-infused drink, but the actors could just as well be drinking beer.

The ad, which features a casual backyard party where people sip the marijuana-infused soda, underscores how much cannabis has merged into mainstream culture, at least in parts of the Pacific Northwest.

L.A. County likely to scrap proposed marijuana tax for homeless services

Category: News | Posted on Sun, July, 24th 2016 by THCFinder

Less than two weeks after voting to pursue a tax on marijuana businesses to help pay for housing and health services for the homeless, Los Angeles County supervisors appear poised to pull the measure from the November ballot.

County officials debated several potential tax measures to fund expanded efforts to reduce homelessness in the county, including a “millionaires tax” on high-income earners, a sales tax and a property tax, but those proposals ran into roadblocks or failed to get the needed level of support on the board.
