Facebook Advertising Dings Cannabis Regulators – no misprint there, Facebook bounced one of our ads asserting that it promotes the use of illegal drugs. Let’ see the ad and their comments:

Also, the State of California Agencies openly displays that they are open and seeking to engage with the commercial cannabis industry in California. Let’s begin with the Secretary of State’s cannabizfile page.

Secretary of State Alex Padilla announced today that for the first time, Californians could form their Limited Liability Company (LLC) online through bizfile California,

the agency’s online business filing and search portal. Secretary Padilla also announced Eureka, a new artificial intelligence search assistant, known in the information technology world as a “chatbot,” to help customers easily navigate business resources on the Secretary of State’s website.“The days of only being able to form an LLC in-person at the Secretary of State’s office, or by mail are history with our new, easy online filing option,” said Secretary of State Alex Padilla. “Now, businesses can submit LLC formation documents, submit LLC Statements of Information, or file a trademark or service mark application all online from the convenience of their laptop, tablet or smartphone.”

Over the last five years, LLCs have been the fastest growing entity type registered in California, with nearly 120,000 LLC Formation filings in the 2016-17 fiscal year alone. The new LLC Formation tool was designed and implemented in collaboration with staff from the Secretary of State’s office and the ThinkSmart LLC Platform.

“ThinkSmart is proud to power the LLC Formations online process,” said Troy Bare, VP of Sales, ThinkSmart LLC. “The core values of our technology focus on streamlining processes for the government through automation with the ultimate goal of making it easier than ever to do business in California.”

The Secretary of State’s new chatbot Eureka developed in partnership with Microsoft. It answers frequently asked business entity and trademark questions. Customers can ask a question such as “How do I get a copy of a filed document?” and Eureka will link them to the California Business Search website where they can look up their business record and access documents for free. Eureka responds best to short questions or keywords. The California Secretary of State is the first state-level Department or Agency to use Microsoft’s Artificial Intelligence and bot services to modernize and create efficiencies when providing services to customers.
