No pot sellers on Google, TIME says

One more obstacle for Washington's budding marijuana industry to confront: You won't be able to advertise on Google or Facebook.

That according to TIME, which says that even in Washington and Colorado, where recreational marijuana use is legal, Google and Facebook will not allow sellers to advertise their wares.

Washington's new regulations on recreational marijuana have strict rules for standard advertising like signage for stores but Internet advertising isn't mentioned in the regs.
