An anti-marijuana organization in Arizona has asked the state’s attorney general to investigate cannabis tech company Weedmaps for false advertising.
Here’s what you need to know:
- ARDP has issued a “call to action,” asking its supporters to write the AG’s office of consumer complaints.
- The group also takes issue with Weedmaps’ claim that marijuana can be used to fight the opioid crisis.
- ARDP says the billboards violate a state law that prohibits deceptive and false advertising.
- Weedmaps’ billboards cite state surveys for the youth usage claim and a highly touted 2014 survey on death rates stemming from opioid use.
