WASHINGTON: As cannabis legalization gains great popular acceptance and new adult-use states open up, demand for reliable news and information about the plant, its many products and usages is surging. Since 2013, MJNews has been “The Voice of Legal Cannabis,” meeting the needs of working professionals in legal cannabis by providing the reliable business intelligence, trusted community and opportunities needed to build the country’s fastest growing business segment.
MJNews Network is now extending its editorial reach to include the most popular OTT platforms through an exclusive partnership with 420MEDIA and its CANNECTEDTV streaming app.
“It’s super exciting to witness the debut of MJBA’s flagship media properties streaming across the world’s most powerful OTT platforms, including ROKU, AppleTV, GooglePlay and Amazon FireTV. MJNews Network and 420MEDIA have been collaborating since the early days of legal cannabis, and we are excited to expand upon that relationship through this strategic media partnership with CANNECTED.TV. These are exciting times to be in the cannabis media business, and we look forward to contributing to the unstoppable mainstreaming of marijuana, and the national reform of marijuana laws.
