Booth No. 709 drew a lot of attention during Lift & Co.’s recent Vancouver cannabis convention — not all of it good.
The booth belonged to Kelowna’s BLK MKT cannabis brand. The name, itself a reference to weed’s legacy market, has already drawn some scorn. Now people are reacting to BLK MKT’s latest marketing slogan: ‘Once you go BLK…’
Some well-known social media cannabis personalities reacted swiftly after pictures of the booth were posted on Twitter.
“This is disgusting and appalling,” reacted Rachel Colic, of Boss Ladies of Cannabis.
“Lift & Co. should be embarrassed that they promoted this brand and the people who created this brand should be fired. The name was bad enough, but these headlines are racist, not edgy.”
