Shub Law Firm is investigating claims for a class-action lawsuit against marijuana dispensaries for violating the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) with their advertising efforts.
Marijuana is now legal in eleven states and has a mixed decriminalized status for medicinal or other purposes in twenty-eight states. Due to this, dispensaries have become more and more common across America. Like any other business, dispensaries advertise to potential consumers, but are they following advertising laws?
THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TELEPHONE PROTECTION ACT
The TCPA protects consumers like you against unwanted and unsolicited automated calls, text messages, and faxes attempting to sell products. These messages are not just annoying but invade your privacy, which is protected under federal law. What’s worse is that these messages occur without the consumer’s consent, which is a serious violation of the TCPA.
ONGOING CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT AGAINST MARIJUANA DISPENSARIES
Regardless of what a company sells, we expect their business practices to respect the consumers and the law. The current lawsuit claims that marijuana dispensaries have been “sending unsolicited text messages, ringless voicemails, robocalls, and/or using pre-recorded voices when contacting consumers without their consent,” which is a clear violation of the TCPA.
Fourteen states are currently involved in the investigation, including: New York, California, Washington, and Colorado. This investigation is ongoing, and if you are found eligible to participate, you may be entitled to compensation.
