Ganjapreneur last week announced that they are accepting applications for guest contributors who wish to share their own experiences navigating the tumultuous cannabis industry via the rapidly-expanding website.

As an online marijuana business resource, Ganjapreneur is committed to providing its readers with the best possible information and news regarding the cannabis industry. However, the best insights often come with experience, and for that the team behind Ganjapreneur is reaching out to their readers, many of whom are entrepreneurs in the cannabis space or professionals in a related industry.

Becoming a guest contributor means more than just sharing your knowledge with the public, according to Ganjapreneur: it affords you a unique opportunity to establish your expertise with the Ganjapreneur audience. All contributions will include an “About the Author” section with a photo of the author (if desired), a short professional bio, and a link to the author's website or social media profile. If the contribution is made by a business or organization, a brief description will be used instead.

Guest contributions will require a rigorous editing process before they are accepted. Guest articles will be published on the Ganjapreneur website, broadcast over the organization's social media channels, featured in its weekly newsletter, and made available via the Ganjapreneur mobile app.

U.S.: Media Effort To End Marijuana Prohibition Kicks Off With TV, Internet, Radio PSA Campaign

EndProhibitionNow[HOBO]

Public Service Ads By Award-Winning Creative Audio/Music House Designed to Educate the Public and Reform Harsh Sentencing Laws

After witnessing first hand the effects of the nation’s draconian marijuana laws, Howard Bowler, president of the award-winning audio post/music production company HOBO, is responding the only way he knows how -- through the power of sound. The company is launching a TV, radio and Internet public service campaign targeting states where measures to legalize marijuana are on the ballot.

HOBO’s creative team wrote and produced the ads that are available for free to any broadcast outlet and organization interested in this issue. All of the spots can be customized for local markets. Several regional radio spots have already been produced with input from the organization Regulate Rhode Island.

“The more I learned about the origin of prohibition, the more I realized these laws have a complex political history, are not based on science or health and yet their social impact is huge,” Bowler said. “Last year alone 700,000 people were arrested on marijuana related charges. That’s more than for all violent crimes combined.

Colorado: Entrepreneurs Launch National PotGuide.com

When Jeremy Bamford started Colorado Pot Guide (coloradopotguide.com) in 2013, the idea was straightforward: Give locals and visitors everything they need to find and enjoy cannabis, while also helping them stay on the good side of the law.

The informative, practical and easy-to-use approach triumphed, with traffic blossoming to 250,000 visitors a month by early 2015. The company has been tapped by everyone from overseas reporters seeking guidance about Colorado’s great experiment to tourists across the country hunting for dispensaries and cannabis-friendly lodging options for their next vacation.

Now, Colorado Pot Guide goes national, with PotGuide.com. The rollout begins with Washington state, which legalized medical and recreational marijuana, and Nevada, a medical-marijuana state with an upcoming ballot issue that seeks to make recreational marijuana legal in early 2016

“Our guide clearly resonated with people in Colorado, so we decided to offer locals and visitors in other states the same breadth of high-quality, engaging content, as well as all-inclusive listings of cannabis-related businesses and services,” said Bamford, who lives in Denver. “My goal from the beginning was to include all businesses in the guide for free — not just those that advertised or paid for an enhanced listing.

"I have always geared the website towards the reader, both in educating and connecting them to relevant service providers," Bamford said. "I want PotGuide.com to be their trusted, resource in the world of marijuana, day after day.”

WeedFlirtMarijuanaFriendlyOnlineDatingCommunity

Weed Flirt, a cannabis friendly online dating website for adults 21 years and older, is now open to membership in the USA. The website is accessible from browsers on desktops, laptops, tablets and mobile phones.

“Marijuana use is coming out of the closet and into the mainstream as medical and recreational marijuana use laws are enacted across the United States and other countries," said Weed Flirt founder A.N. Todd. "Marijuana users have long struggled when it comes to finding a partner that doesn’t freak out when the question of cannabis use comes up.

"On Weed Flirt we are encouraging marijuana users and non-users who are marijuana friendly to come together in a progressive dating community,” Todd said.

“Weed Flirt is for laid back people who don’t mind if their potential partner uses marijuana. It’s a progressive service," Todd ssaid. "It’s not for you if you are a bigot, racist, juice head, needle junkie, wacko, extremist or simply don’t accept cannabis as a cure.”

Searchable Profiles

Members create profiles in which they can post and update photos, video and audio clips.

Search is by age, sex, city and state as well as by geographic location or current proximity. Communication is by private message as well as instant online chat.

Local Groups

In a major change to what’s currently on offer by online dating services, Weed Flirt is supporting groups. For instance you might join the San Francisco Group and meet other singles offline.

U.S.: Domain Broker Offers Dot Coms For Marijuana Industry

NealSutz

Eighteen-year veteran domain broker Neal Sutz of Phoenix, Arizona on Tuesday released his list of available dot com domain names for the cannabis industry.

“There are very few industries which can take advantage of the enormous benefits of using a 'generic' dot com domain name to strengthen their brands and increase their profits than can the MJ industry,” Sutz said.

As dispensaries, both medical and recreational, are buying up 'generic' dot com domain names for both their online and offline marketing efforts, Sutz’s domains are of particular interest to those in the marijuana industry.

Included in his offering are the following domain names:

TheMedicalMarijuanaCard.com

MedicalMarijuanaIDCards.com

LegalRecreationalPot.com

MedicinalEdible.com

WholesaleMedicalCannabis.com

RecreationalPotDispensary.com

CAMedicalMarijuanaCard.com (and the plural of this domain)

ORMarijuanaDispensary.com

NVMarijuanaCard.com

NVMarijuanaDispensary.com

While some of Sutz’s marijuana domains are of a premium quality, demanding considerable investment from their new owners, many of the domains offered are priced starting from only $500 each.

“I say to all those who are in the MJ industry…there are no better domains on the market for sale in the MJ industry than the domains I am offering today and based upon those I have sold already," Sutz said. "I anticipate the remainder of my MJ domain collection will be sold out by the end of this week.
