The policy change goes into effect March 1
Prior to recreational cannabis legalization in California, unlicensed cannabis companies proliferated under a system that didn’t require state licenses to operate medical cannabis businesses; however, the opportunity for those operating under the guise of legality is over in California and a popular cannabis dispensary and strain review website is erring on the side of caution when it comes to advertising unlicensed cannabis companies.
On Feb. 7, 2018, Leafly announced that it will no longer permit California’s unlicensed cannabis companies to have listings or advertisements on its website or smartphone app, with the policy change going into effect March 1.
“Businesses that have already received their state or municipal license and validated their license status with Leafly will not see any changes to their accounts. Leafly will credit the accounts of pending licensees and store their current information through the end of 2018 to enable partners to quickly and easily resume advertising when they receive their license,” the company stated in a press release.
