One day, Elon Musk is revealed to be even more fragile than we ever thought.
But then the next, he sort of redeems himself by making Twitter a greener place to be.
The “cannabis conversation” will get even more attention now that Twitter has puff-puff- passed along the news of its updated “Drugs and Drug Paraphernalia” ads policy, which will now allow the marketing of cannabis products in Canada and U.S. states where THC is legal.
Twitter also says it will only accept ads from state-licensed advertisers that will geographically target areas where the products can be legally sold.
It’s a pot-ential money-making move for the first social media platform to be fully marijuana-positive, because there’s a lot of gold to be made from the groovy greenery. Just check the states where it’s currently legal to see the boost to the economy.
“The cannabis space on Twitter is fun and engaging with users Tweeting about their experiences using cannabis – whether medicinally, for wellness, or recreation – as well as recommending brands, products, and retail locations,” Twitter said in its post. “The conversation also reflects where the cannabis industry is currently heading: legislative/policy reform, business development, and community impact.”
“The Cannabis Space” would also be a cool name for a dispensary, just saying.
Anyway, this doesn’t make Musk any less terrible in my (possibly red for some reason) eyes, because he only cares about the bottom line, not the medical usages or other ways the plant can be vital other than just getting you high.
It also won’t make anyone think he’s cool.
Elon Musk is a subhuman buzzkill, as proven by his cringey appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast and his lame jokes about “4:20.”
But at least no one is going to Twitter jail for a marijuana misdemeanor, so spark up some of that wacky tabacky and give props to your budtender in a tweet!
Cannabis industry stakeholders are fired up about Twitter's new advertising policy, but the fine print shows big limitations—including that it doesn't allow ads promoting marijuana product sales.
A carveout for CBD topicals was also in the former policy.https://t.co/JRMEnIlVp4 pic.twitter.com/JC6pEkMhjn

Imagine going to prison for marijuana possession and Matt Gaetz is in Congress while sex trafficking young girls and trying to overthrow the government.
