Sandblasting Media Crema Nestle’s Media Console Letra has a long history of using media consoles to create a kind of black market for content.
But it’s not just about content.
The media console has become a platform for illegal trafficking of drugs, child pornography, and other illegal content.
In May, Sandblaster reported that Sandblast uncovered the site of a new child porn website using the console.
And the Sandblasters report found that at least two companies are exploiting the console to make money.
The news media and legal cannabis industry have long complained about the problems with Sandblas consoles, but now the industry is looking for solutions.
In an effort to close the console market, the US government last year approved a $200 million grant to Sandblazer.
Sandblaser says it will spend the money to expand its capabilities to provide legal cannabis production facilities.
But some industry members are skeptical.
“It seems to me that they are not interested in taking the next step,” said Robert Wood, director of the Marijuana Policy Project.
“They’re focused on making sure they don’t lose the revenue they make off this illegal product, and if they do, they can get away with it.”
The government funding for Sandblasher comes from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
But the Sandblasters support for the grant has drawn some criticism from some in the industry.
“This is a project to get a piece of a much bigger pie, and it is clearly not working,” said Michael Pollan, CEO of cannabis research and advocacy group the Cannabis Policy Project (CPP).
“We are still seeing more and more people using this console, and I think we need to have a conversation about whether or not the money should go to the real solution or to the money that’s being spent on this [console].”
Wood argues that Sandblastasters efforts are working well.
The company has hired about 40 people and has been making a lot of progress.
But Sandblasteers efforts aren’t helping much in the war on illegal marijuana, he said.
Despite the challenges, Wood and other industry leaders say Sandblasts success in fighting illegal marijuana is evidence that the technology is changing.
“I think that SandBlaster has done a good job,” Wood said.
“But I also think that it is just a piece in a much larger puzzle.”
