Eaze App Promises 10-Minute Medical Marijuana Delivery To Any Home In The San Francisco Bay Area
That’s right. If you live in San Francisco, and are legally eligible to purchase medical marijuana from any of California’s fine dispensaries, you are able to use this free delivery service, and presumably to get the strain you desire in only 10 minutes. Documents such as doctors notes are to be submitted and reviewed online to verify your eligibility to use the service. While the number of states that are amending their rules to legalize, or at least decriminalize, marijuana for either medical or recreational use is steadily growing, the Eaze app can currently only be used by Bay Area residents. The New York Times recently called for legalization, a major step for the legalization movement from a legitimate, and reputable news source.
Cash is never exchanged between the client and deliveryman, for the service that is. The professionals who are hired by Eaze are paid by the dispensaries, making $10 per delivery. The service is available from 8 a.m. to midnight, and all drivers must pass background checks.
Eaze was founded by CEO Keith McCarty, formerly of Yammer, which was purchased by Microsoft for $1.2 million. In case you kept up with the news of emerging Google Glass apps and where wondering, this Eaze app has nothing to do with the Dutch start up app of the same name meant for automatic payments. Eaze has already been dubbed “the Uber of weed” by multiple news sources since the news of the app’s existence originally broke three days ago. While the tracking capabilities of the medical marijuana app, and the taxi and car reservation app are similar, you can do pretty much the same thing on the Domino’s app, so what does that really mean anyway? It means that the cool kids at the tech party are ready to meet up with the new code loving burn out.
Using an app like Eaze is great news as it drastically reduces the risk of being at your local medical dispensary and ending up as a part of a federal government raid, but of course it does nothing for the risk of the federal government knowing that you are buying marijuana. Whatever that’ll come to mean in the next five years or so.
