Facebook Blocks MMJ Educational Video

Medical cannabis apparently isn’t socially acceptable in Connecticut. At least, not by Facebook.

A marketing firm in the state which attempted to upload an educational video about MMJ to Facebook recently was blocked, and his account was then prohibited from posting further videos, according to a Connecticut TV station.

The video wasn’t even a sales pitch for the firm’s client, Kyle Reyes of Silent Partner Marketing told Fox CT, but an educational piece that focused on the medical benefits of marijuana.

“It’s actually videos that the state had already approved and said, ‘You guys can go ahead and market these on social media,’” Reyes told the TV station.

Facebook and Google both have rules against promoting MMJ, the station reported, but Reyes plans to fight such decisions. Meanwhile, he told Fox CT, he’ll be pushing the video on competing social media sites.
