    They're positioning it as "Yelp for weed".

    ^---Weed is big business, brotha. I would imagine there are ad networks out there willing to dabble in this (plenty of dispensaries willing to spend big $ on ads, I'm sure).

    The funny thing is because it's technically illegal in the US, they have virtually 0 competition.

    With the new extensions coming out I am surprised that .com still command such a high price. Might be cheaper to have bought the .marijuana extension.
