420 with CNW — How to Leverage Consumer Data While Marketing Cannabis

The cannabis industry exists in a precarious position. While dozens of states have legal and robust cannabis markets, the federal government still classifies cannabis as a controlled drug.

Cannabis businesses in most states have to contend with strict marketing limitations and can’t use most conventional advertising avenues such as social media to market their products. Despite these barriers, businesses in the cannabis space can still optimize their marketing efforts by leveraging consumer data. Studying how different kinds of consumers approach cannabis use…

Cannabis has been the most used illegal drug in America for decades.
