WeedMaps, California's Biggest Marijuana Website, Is "Winning" Y'all!

Thumbnail image for weedmaps.jpg
Way to go, WeedMaps! Just a day before President Barack Obama pretty much officially declares war on medical marijuana in California, the state's premiere pot-related website has to brag to the world about how profitable it is.

That's right--profitable--the last word that's supposed to come to mind when you're talking about sick patients having access to palliative care in the form of a sticky green bud that just happens to be the state's biggest cash crop. After all, the fact that folks are indeed making insane profits thanks to medical marijuana is exactly what the feds are using as a pretext to crack down on dispensaries as well as the landlords who rent property to them.

But I digress: on Oct. 6, just a day before the feds sent out letters threatening to seize property being used to profit from cannabis sales, General Cannabis, Inc., the Newport Beach-based parent company that owns WeedMaps Media, Inc., issued a press release celebrating their 21st consecutive month of "revenue gains" as well as a "more than threefold monthly revenue increase to $1,250,000 for the month of September 2011, compared to $365,177 for the month of September 2010."

But wait there's more!

The company's also happy because there's been a more than 100 percent increase in website traffic for both WeedMaps.com and the WeedMaps smartphone applications. In fact, more than 7 million people visited the website and 9 million page views were registered via smartphone applications last month.

"WeedMaps' continuing growth validates our ability to generate significant revenue through Internet portals that serve niche markets, even as the current economy and overall market conditions remain volatile," reflects Doug Francis, General Cannabis' president. "Clearly, our many offerings, including smartphone applications, offer winning solutions for those in the medical cannabis community. As a result of our successes, we strongly believe that we can leverage our technological platform and systems into other industry sectors."

In fairness, WeedMaps deserves to be happy. Who knows how many desperately ill Californians have been able to walk down the street to their nearest dispensary or locate the closest delivery service thanks to the company's handy website? And it's certainly not WeedMaps' fault if those delivery services or dispensaries are illegally profiting from marijuana sales rather than simply providing cannabis to qualified collective members in return for donations that happen to be of the monetary variety.

Didn't OC Weekly used to be the leading service in collective advertisements til sites like WeedMaps came along? Why is this publication so bitter that someone is helping patients better than they can?

Bad form, OC Weekly.

WeedMaps doesn't touch Cannabis, but provides a platform for hundreds of thousands of patients throughout the state, everyday, to access the medicine that they seek out.  If anything, WeedMaps should be credited as the single largest source in putting patients in touch with their flowers, that has ever existed, therefore doing a justice to the spread of this Movement. 

Repressive governmental pressures will undoubtedly persist so long as we have a corporate-colluded governing structure that favors Big Pharma, Big Alcohol, and Big Tobacco, while ignorantly denying the medical efficacy of a FLOWER that has been consumed for THOUSANDS of years, across the planet, and could single handedly eliminate the need for a large portion of conventional medicine.  

WeedMaps record monthly profits are the canary in the coal mine of Cannabis being a Schedule 1 drug that seems to be helping the state and community more than its hurting.

There is a company out of Colorado... MMJ Kush that is much better than weedmaps.  Just wait until people find out about them and then we will all celebrate when General Cannabis says "where did our profits go."
