MassRootsNasdaq has rejected an application by MassRoots, a social network for cannabis users, to list shares on its exchange.
MassRoots said in a press release Tuesday that Nasdaq thought it was helping to sell an illegal substance. Medical marijuana is illegal under federal law but allowed in 23 states.
MassRoots plans to formally appeal, and it has started a public campaign to get more people to protest the electronic exchange.
"If we were a social network for tobacco users or alcohol consumers, the Nasdaq would likely be moving forward on our application even though alcohol and tobacco cause far more deaths and societal damage than cannabis ever will," MassRoots CEO Isaac Dietrich said in a press release.
MassRoots would have been the first cannabis-focused company to be listed on the exchange.
"Moreover, the Nasdaq has already listed at least four biotechnology companies that extract compounds from the cannabis plant for scientific research — actually touching the plant as part of their business model," Dietrich said.
Apple banned the MassRoots app from its store but later reinstated it in US states that have legalized medical cannabis.
MassRoots argued that Nasdaq's decision would make it more difficult for other weed entrepreneurs to raise capital.
A Nasdaq spokesperson told Business Insider that the company does not comment on listing applications.

Now that oil prices have rebounded to $50 per barrel, will U. S. shale drillers turn the taps back on?
That is the million dollar question that the oil markets still do not have a clear answer on. Last year, when oil prices rebounded from $44 per barrel in March to $60 in June, the rig count leveled off.
Thomson ReutersBoth Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are seeing their negativity ratings climb, and both candidates are unpopular with the electorate at large.
That's according to a striking new poll from NBC News and The Wall Street Journal that reveals the election is shaping up as a choice between the lesser of two evils for many Americans.
In the poll conducted earlier this month, 54% of respondents said they have a negative view of Clinton, the likely Democratic nominee for president, while just 34% said they have a positive view.
And 58% said they have a negative view of presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump, while 29% were positive.
Clinton and Trump are two of the least popular politicians in the poll.
