Marijuana information and political advocacy hub, The Weed Blog, is joins Maven

MavenPR is now live on Maven, the newly launched digital media platform.

The primary goal of The Weed Blog is to end the social stigma related to marijuana usage and facilitate constructive conversations about the legalization of marijuana for medical and recreational usage. The Weed Blog is led by Travis Maurer, a vocal advocate for marijuana legalization who played a large role in the legalization of marijuana in Oregon.

Maurer made the decision to move The Weed Blog to Maven’s platform because it provides strong channel management and security.

“The Weed Blog is one of the most trafficked marijuana sites in the world and Maven takes care of managing the security, coding and backend work which requires great skill and a team of knowledgeable engineers,” Maurer said. “Moving to Maven’s platform was a no-brainer for us as it lets us do what we do best – focus on delivering premium content and the best marijuana news and information to our millions of visitors. Additionally, one of the most valuable opportunities we have on The Maven platform is the ability to work with other Maven network partners to broaden our reach and provide new and engaging content to a diverse group of readers.”

“We welcome passionate discussion across multiple social issues and our platform provides the foundation to broaden the reach of The Weed Blog,” said Maven CEO James Heckman. “The goal at Maven is to provide a platform to engage thoughtful visitors in intelligent, constructive conversations. We’re excited to see The Weed Blog flourish on our platform.”

Dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations are bringing their organizations to Maven’s coalition of elite content channels.

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners.
