Cannabis Advertising: What You Need To Know
With the recent legalization updates in the large parts of the U.S. and in Canada, the cannabis industry is quickly developing its roots in both markets. The industry grows, but so is its regulation.
In the U.S., the National Association of Cannabis Businesses (NACB) released its national standards for cannabis advertising. The NACB standards are expected to be influential in future state and federal legislation concerning cannabis advertising.
