Don’t Miss Our 4/20 Reddit AMA
April 20, 2023 – One of our favorite days of the year is approaching (4/20), and once again we are celebrating by hosting an Ask Me Anything (AMA) on Reddit. This is an opportunity for us to interact directly with the public to answer any, and we mean any, burning questions you have about the cannabis industry. Our entire legal team is available to provide the information you are looking for. From trademarks and patents to cannabis banking, we have all the bases covered.
We are kicking things off on Reddit at 7:30 a.m. PDT and will take questions throughout the day. We hope to see you at the AMA. Here is the link for the AMA.
Reddit is known as “the front page of the internet” and is one of the most visited sites on the internet. It is a content and discussion focused website. Users submit content like links, text posts, and images on a huge variety of topics. The posts are then voted up or down by others, and the most popular content eventually makes it to the website’s front page.
Fun fact, one of Reddit’s key investors in 2014 was Snoop Dogg. Happy 4/20, everyone!
