One of the premier names in online cannabis information, Seattle-based Leafly, said Monday that it’s further cutting its workforce as part of a response to the coronavirus outbreak.
Leslie said the company is continuing to grow, but the coronavirus has “put further capital investments we were expecting on pause.” As a result, he said, Leafly was forced to cut costs more than it had previously.
The company had a smaller round of layoffs in 2017, when it cut 15 workers.
“This workforce reduction (on Monday) will allow us to be financially self-sufficient so we can continue” operations, Leslie noted.
He said the company is currently focused on deploying “pickup and delivery services for retailers and brands across North America.”
