Leafly LFLY, announced a headcount reduction of 56 positions – or 21 percent of the company’s workforce through a combination of layoffs and attrition – to ensure its long-term health. The company expects a one-time cash restructuring charge for the layoffs of approximately $500,000 in Q4 of 2022.

I have a great amount of gratitude for each and every one of our team members who have helped build Leafly into the world-class brand and platform it is today.”
