A Canadian startup company has pulled out of CES after limits were placed on how they can promote their product at the consumer electronics show in Las Vegas.

According to TechCrunch, Keeep Labs won a 2020 CES Innovation Award for its smart cannabis storage device that is climate-controlled and has facial recognition.

When they were told they could not mention cannabis or show depictions of the plant on the showroom floor, they pulled out as an exhibitor.

This is Keep Labs' first product and they are raising funds for its production.
