WeedMD announced its extraction subsidiary CX Industries signed an exclusive licensing deal with openly sexist canna-bro/gambler/Instagram personality Dan Bilzerian’s Ignite International Brands.
- Bilzerian did not comment on the deal. His second most recent Twitter post reads, “Just cuz your girlfriend posts a pic of you on her IG doesn’t mean she won’t fuck other guys.”
- In May, GrowthOp published a generous profile of WeedMD that presented the LP as “big on gender equality,” with 50% female executives, 38% female directors, 50% female managers, and a 40% female workforce.
- Figures across the sector reacted in disgust, some calling for boycotts. Tantalus Labs’ CEO Dan Sutton said, “I was wondering who was going to be dumb enough to self nuke on that Ignite deal. The rest of us didn’t think twice on turning those dudes down. Brand suicide.”
