By BBC. Authorised cannabis businesses in these states are entirely legal. So they say they were left puzzled in recent weeks, when their Facebook pages were suddenly shut down. Reports suggest that at least a dozen cannabis businesses across six US states have had their Facebook pages disabled in the past few weeks.
One such company is Mary’s Medicinals, a cannabis products manufacturer based in Denver, Colorado – the first US state to legalise cannabis. It specialises in marijuana skin patches, supplements and topical gels. Business development manager Graham Sorkin said the business’ Facebook page was shut down at the end of January – and he told us that he’s confused, as Mary’s Medicinals is an authorised marijuana dealer.
