The world is beginning to accept marijuana use, and laws are rapidly changing to reflect that. States across America have started to legalize cannabis both medically and recreationally. Around the globe, marijuana laws are also evolving in Mexico, Canada, and many other nations.
Slowly but surely, the negative stigma and illegality surrounding marijuana is lessening. So why are social media sites still policing users for something that’s legal in a growing number of places? Thankfully, not every social media site feels the need to harsh their users’ mellow. Welcome to TheWeedTube.
Even though the world is starting to come to terms with marijuana use, social media companies still aren’t playing nice. You used to be able to follow your favorite cannabis influencers on YouTube, but not anymore. The popular video hosting site removed several cannabis-related accounts during a time that many vloggers called the ‘weed-pocalypse.’ Without warning, videos and channels with cannabis content were deleted or demonetized. To fight this injustice, the group of banned creators came together to form TheWeedTube.
TheWeedTube is a safe haven for cannabis enthusiasts and their content. Much like YouTube, Instagram and Facebook have also been known to unceremoniously delete marijuana posts and accounts. Weed-related paraphernalia is heavily policed on these platforms despite their claims to allow for cannabis advocacy and discussion. Shockingly, cannabis content was restricted from searches on Facebook until late 2018. Furthermore, to this day, you can’t advertise cannabis-related accessories like bongs, vapes, or rolling papers on Facebook. Twitter has similar policies, with exceptions made for Canadian advertisements. While these social media sites have conflicting policies regarding marijuana, TheWeedTube is for stoners and by stoners.
Since the three largest social media giants have such strict limitations, there’s a huge need for a space where cannabis enthusiasts and content creators can interact and thrive. The platform also allows users to monetize their videos and showcases weed-related ads. The site is constantly evolving and introducing new features and improvements. It is now available to download from both the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store.
