Marijuana Delivery Startups Are Ready. The U.S. Government Is Not.

With new laws regulating the medical marijuana industry in Washington set to pass on Friday, pot entrepreneurs are re-thinking their business plans.

WASHINGTON: Canary, a new startup that offers on-demand marijuana delivery, recently launched with the tagline “Prohibition is over.” The startup’s webpage advertises 24/7 availability for pot in Colorado and Washington, where state legislatures recently legalized the sale of recreational marijuana. The site teases a sleek, simple app for ordering, available for both iPhone and Android devices; knowledgeable couriers will work with local dispensaries to bring the goods to your door with three the click of three buttons, Canary promises, making acquiring pot as easy as ordering takeout Chinese food.
