Google, Facebook, And Twitter Still Say “No” To Marijuana

Erratic and as flighty a lover as it is, the Internet is deeply and madly committed to a few things: itself, Bitcoin, and marijuana.

And not necessarily in that order. All things weed related are a Web traffic bonanza — and it's via the Internet that vital news like cannabis's ability to help kids with epilepsy spread — and generate clicks and shares and plenty of activity on Facebook and Twitter.

Social media is happy about that, but not happy to take advertising money from the marijuana industry. Google, Twitter and Facebook are still rejecting weed ads, and the Apple store and Google Play are devoid of pot apps, according to AdWeek, even in states where pot is legal.
