CALIFORNIA: Eaze, the leading marijuana technology company, announced its official launch in San Jose today. Residents with a valid medical marijuana recommendation can now use Eaze to place orders for marijuana delivered on demand by a licensed dispensary. Residents in need of a recommendation can connect to a doctor on demand from their phone using the EazeMD app. Deliveries will be fulfilled by The Guild, a San Jose licensed dispensary.
In October 2016, San Jose reversed its ban on medical marijuana delivery. Under the city’s previous delivery ban, San Jose struggled with over 30 prominently advertised unlicensed delivery services. The new ordinance permits delivery by licensed dispensaries, and received widespread support from patients, collectives, law enforcement, and community members.
“There was a strong desire for patients to have safer access to the medicine recommended to them by their doctors. It’s great to see the San Jose City Council be responsive to the needs of its constituents, and we hope other California communities will follow suit,” said Jim Patterson, CEO of Eaze. “Eaze’s mission has always been to help dispensaries provide a safe and professional cannabis experience, and we are proud to now be servicing San Jose patients.”
As cannabis regulations continue to evolve across California, data is playing a key role in their development. As the largest marijuana technology platform, Eaze is proud to work with local regulators across the state, including the San Jose City Council and law enforcement agencies, to help them better understand how technology can help provide safe access to cannabis and insight into consumer preferences.
“Legalizing deliveries is simply smart public policy,” said Reverend Jethro Moore of San Jose. “It impacts neighborhoods disproportionately affected by a failed prohibition policy in that legal delivery provides a path to legitimate employment for people traditionally over-prosecuted and replaces illegal street dealing. Our neighborhoods will be safer and the way San Jose is regulating deliveries means youth will not have easy access to cannabis.”
Available in nearly 100 cities throughout California, Eaze helps patients receive safe, regulated deliveries from compliant dispensaries in less than 20 minutes.
