Taylor Gang Rapper Berner To Launch “Instagram Of Marijuana”
On January 1st, 2015, Marijuana.com will become the #1 destination for cannabis enthusiasts through the efforts of Taylor Gang affiliate Berner.
Hes teamed up with Weedmaps.com who currently owns the “high” end domain to establish the “Instagram Of Marijuana.”
As of late, more and more posts concerning the “taboo” subject of weed have been disappearing from social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, violating drug policies by sharing images.
Berner and Weedmaps hope this will be a solution. The rapper will serve as the Executive Director and will also operate as the brand’s ambassador. This partnership follows the removal of Berner’s Instagram account.
“I was one of the accounts that got deleted,” he says via a press release. “I was fortunate enough to get my account back but many other community members have not been so lucky. This community is special to me and we believe in this plant and now Marijuana.com will unite and bring our people together.”
Weedmaps.com Co-Founder and CEO Justin Hartfield believes Berner is a perfect partner because he’s not just a rapper looking to profit off the industry.
“He is deeply passionate about marijuana legalization and someone that has known, loved and respected marijuana since long before there was even an ‘cannabis industry’,” Hartfield says.
Weedmaps.com will operate out of a new office space in San Francisco. They chose the Bay Area due to its history of marijuana innovators and pioneers.
“In San Fransisco, great weed and great technology go hand in hand,” Berner says. “I can’t think of a better city to put our roots in the ground.” –HHDX
