"MCN was created to fill the gaps in the marijuana industry, and what we've been seeing over the years is that cannabis-based businesses are continually denied services from online ad networks," said Jason Draizin, Chairman and CEO of MCN. "Not only does this prevent cannabis companies from utilizing the Internet to grow their businesses, but it also blocks companies from reaching out to the very real medical marijuana community. We launched Cheeba to step up and fulfill those needs."
No word yet on when Cheeba.com will be officially launched. Right now a visit to Cheeba.com yields nothing but an unimpressive Web site and a message that new members are not being accepted right now.
We'll have to keep our eyes on this project.
