Seven Oklahoma MED shops are suing Facebook over allegations that the social network is “subjectively” putting them in “Facebook Jail.” They claim Facebook has “a pattern of targeting the Oklahoma medical marijuana industry.”
- “From the surface” plaintiffs suggest Facebook is less stringent in legal REC states like Colorado and California.
- The plaintiffs seek a court order preventing Facebook from censoring their sites, as well as $75,000 for “economic harm.”
- Facebook’s policy does not allow companies to sell marijuana. It also bans ads for legal products such as alcohol, tobacco, pharmaceuticals and pornography.
- Utah may retool a proposed MED distribution plan, because the current model would require public workers to break federal law.
