LA City Attorney Sues To Block Marijuana Delivery App

CALIFORNIA: The Los Angeles city attorney filed a lawsuit Tuesday to shut down a mobile phone application that arranges medical marijuana home deliveries.

The suit alleges that the iPhone and Android free app, Nestdrop, is a “flagrant attempt” to bypass restrictions contained in Proposition D, the medical marijuana law approved by Los Angeles voters last year.

Nestdrop links customers with delivery services. It started as an alcoholic beverage delivery service but added marijuana in November, promising arrival within an hour.

Pot delivery is currently only available in Los Angeles, but the company has said it wants to expand throughout Southern California.

Customers must prove they have a doctor’s prescription and must be a member of a medical marijuana collective, although they can join a local one through the app.

The company said it works with local dispensaries that can provide pot in bud, edible and concentrated forms.

Weed Express: Marijuana App Offers On-Demand Home Delivery

CALIFORNIA:  A new San Francisco smartphone app promises to promptly deliver cannabis right to your door. It’s the latest in a new crop of apps aimed at making access to pot easier.

Dubbed “Meadow,” the app is available for Android devices through the Google Play store, and its creators claim it delivers medical marijuana to patients in San Francisco’s Bay Area from lawfully-operated dispensaries.

With a few touches of the screen, a patient can upload their California ID and valid medical marijuana prescription into the app’s database, which is verified by dispensaries, according to TechCrunch. Once approved, the patient can browse through high-quality images of different strains of marijuana with names like “Betsy” or “Blueberry Kush,” decide on a quantity, place an order, and expect delivery to their home within the hour.
