SHESH! Facebook has done this in Arizona also. Just last year it shut down all dispensary pages on Facebook. Also if your “flagged” on Instagram you can be removed from there also. Reason is Facebook is against cannabis right now, and facebook owns Instagram.

Our Facebook was taken down a ways back. We eventually spoke with someone at Facebook and we are now more careful about what we post.

We also had our Instagram taken down at one point.

Did Facebook give you guidelines around what you could and couldn’t post that you can share with us?

Sounds like ShawBee may be offering to provide similar information, but I’ll let you know what they told us.

Basically you can’t post prices or even link to your website if it contains pricing information. Facebook believes that these sorts of posts make their company a “facilitator” of drugs sales, in a way.

Colorado dispensary Facebook pages are still being constantly shut down. It’s an endless battle of deletion, recreation, deletion, recreation, etc.

Here is a good tactic for cannabis biz to use for social media which is safe and effective. Use facebook, Instagram, and snapchat to funnel your customers to MASSROOTS. Massroots is a cannabis friendly social media outlet which will allow you to post without worry. Everyone can do social media, but to do it right is an art. : ) Happy Growing Canna folk!
