West Palm Beach, FL – December 11, 2017 – The world’s largest online medical marijuana marketplace, BudTrader.com, has just launched BudTrader Florida, a classified-ads style platform designed specifically for the legal cannabis industry in the state. BudTrader Florida allows entrepreneurs and business owners the opportunity to safely and legally advertise their cannabis products, services, jobs, investment opportunities, and more, to the site’s one million plus registered users.
“Florida has finally legalized medical marijuana, and now that BudTrader has a presence in the state, we plan to use our platform to push for broader legalization,” says BudTrader CEO Brad McLaughlin. “BudTrader Florida is more than just a site for posting cannabis ads. It’s a network and a community! We plan to use our presence to continue to advocate for safe and legal access to marijuana in the great state of Florida.”
BudTrader.com’s expansion into Florida is indicative of the brand’s rapid growth in 2017. The site receives 8-10 million views per month, and has surpassed one million registered users. The platform is now available in the 31 states where marijuana is medically or recreationally legal, plus Washington D.C.
In a groundbreaking move for the industry, BudTrader recently launched the first ever Price Per Pound Index, which calculates the average price per pound of cannabis based on advertised prices in each state. With this more conventional financial index in place for cannabis, BudTrader’s CEO Brad McLaughlin says his goal is to further establish legal weed as a legitimate and thriving industry ahead of the coming Green Rush.
