Over the past several weeks, YouTube has begun to remove channels featuring cannabis-related content, which the company says violates its guidelines. Recently, Leafly’s own YouTube channel was flagged and deleted with little warning. We’re among dozens of cannabis channels to have been affected by this action, and we’re currently working with the company to restore service as quickly as possible.

    That’s bs… I don’t understand why some people in our society are so intent on mimicking communism. Not only from the aspect of authoritarian laws such as drug laws, but also hindering free speech and what could be considered hindering free press.
