In General

wm_logo_web_registeredThe WM Policy site is the portal through which Weedmaps aims to provide data-driven policy and insights to the cannabis activism community, elected officials and the general public seeking to understand the complex issues surrounding cannabis legalization.  As an increasing number of countries, states and cities enact medical or adult-use legalization, there is a critical need for us to provide research and analysis on which policies are succeeding and which failing.  Additionally, the decades of anti-marijuana propaganda has seeded a number of misconceptions and misunderstandings about the effects of marijuana legalization.  We firmly believe the only way to address these issues is through an empirical, data-driven approach that looks pragmatically at the complex policies of marijuana legalization and balances the need for efficient legal marijuana markets with the need for public safety, operator accountability and community reinvestment.  Our policy team is currently working actively with a number of state and local governments to help them craft functional cannabis legalization laws and regulations.  We encourage you to sign-up for updates and to check back frequently for current white papers, news and analysis.
