This guy doesn’t have a friend in Facebook. Sorry, stoners: even in states where pot is legal, you still can’t advertise for it on Facebook or Google. Even though the sites can restrict their ads to specific locations and demographics (i.e., only Colorado and Washington), they still won’t budge on their policies regarding the promotion of recreational drugs, according to Gigaom. Taylor West, deputy director the National Cannabis Industry Association, seemed pretty upset when Facebook wouldn’t “boost” the group’s posts that linked to pot-related stories in various reputable publications.
