The New York Office of Cannabis Management on Thursday said TikTok will not allow the use of the word “cannabis” in public education advertisements. The office said it has launched an education campaign on the legalization of adult-use cannabis and the impact of cannabis use on public health and safety. “When we tried advertising on TikTok, we were informed you do not take cannabis ads of any kind, including ones from government accounts promoting health and education,” said the letter to TikTok chief operating officer Vanessa Pappas and CEO Shouzi Chew from Chris Alexander, executive director of the New York State Office of Cannabis Management. MarketWatch has emailed a TikTok spokesperson and has not yet received a reply.
