About WM Technology, Inc.

WM Technology, Inc.‘s mission is to power a transparent and inclusive global cannabis economy. Now in its second decade, WM Technology has been a driving force behind much of the legislative change we’ve seen in the past 10 years.

Founded in 2008, WM Technology is a leading technology and software infrastructure provider to the cannabis industry, comprising a B2C platform, Weedmaps, and B2B software, WM Business. The cloud-based SaaS solutions from WM Business provide an end-to-end operating system for cannabis retailers.

Through its website and mobile apps, WM Technology provides consumers with the latest information about cannabis retailers, brands, and products, facilitating product discovery and driving engagement with our retail and brand customers.

WM Technology holds a strong belief in the power of cannabis and the importance of enabling safe, legal access to consumers worldwide. Since inception, WM Technology has worked tirelessly, not only to become the most comprehensive platform for consumers, but to build the software solutions that power businesses compliantly in the space, to advocate for legalization, social equity, and licensing in many jurisdictions, and to facilitate further learning through partnering with subject matter experts on providing detailed, accurate information about the plant.

About WM Policy

We are the government relations, research, education and public engagement arm of Weedmaps.

Our Team

The WM Policy staff—with decades of legislative, regulatory and public policy experience, and an impressive record of achievement in local, state and national political campaigns; far reaching and impactful policy development; effective and creative public awareness efforts; and powerful, change-making coalition building—works with lawmakers, advocates, industry groups and other allies to forge safe, fair and accessible cannabis policy across the country and around the world.

Our Priorities

Our goal is to advance and implement sound legislative, regulatory and public policies that create and foster safe, fair, reasonably-regulated and profitable cannabis marketplaces. To get there, our work centers around the following priorities:

Protecting and Expanding Access:

Our efforts ensure that access to legal cannabis is sufficient so that medical patients and adult-use consumers are discouraged from turning to the unregulated market. Our vision of appropriate access includes sufficient retail density, delivery services in all jurisdictions, and a full range of legitimate medical ailments and conditions eligible for a health care provider’s recommendation.

Fostering Social Equity and an Inclusive Industry:

We help build markets where fairness, inclusivity, diversity and social equity are the core, so that those disproportionately impacted by the failed “War on Drugs” have the proper tools and resources to thrive in the competitive cannabis industry. From expunging criminal records and breaking down barriers to entry, to broadening opportunities for market participation through thoughtfully established, rigorously designed and appropriately delivered social equity programs, we endeavor for diverse and inclusive marketplaces.

Establishing Reasonable Taxation:

 A fundamental premise of our work is that taxes should not be the vehicle that drives patients and adult consumers to the unregulated market.

Demonstrating a Commitment to Safety:

We initiate continuous health and safety initiatives through partnerships, public education campaigns and legislative/regulatory enhancements and subscribe to a culture of continuous safety awareness and improvement.

Advancing State-of-the-Art Lab Testing:

Robust standards for lab testing and lab independence from retail operators is a critical component of a safe and successful cannabis marketplace. We partner with science and safety advocates to develop standards in tandem with emerging cannabis research and best practices.

Creating and Growing Efficient Markets:

Unrealistic restrictions on cross-licensure or onerous requirements for unnecessary layers, like monopolistic, independent distributors, drive entrepreneurs and investors away from emerging cannabis markets. We work with the appropriate stakeholders and policy makers to craft  licensing requirements that are well-tailored to legitimate needs.
