L.A. City Attorney Challenges Weed Delivery Smartphone App

Nestdrop is one of several marijuana delivery services in the area.

Medical marijuana delivery service, Nestdrop, is in trouble. Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer filed court papers today to shut down the marijuana delivery smartphone app.  

Feuer says Proposition D makes it clear that there is to be no lawful delivery service because it is not a permitted way for doing business.

“The combination of cash and a controlled substance at a given site is a potentially volatile combination,” says Feuer. Only a patient or a caregiver is allowed to delver medical marijuana under Proposition D, according to Feuer.

He wants a Superior court judge to issue a cease-and-desist order which would stop Nestdrop from delivering marijuana.

Nestdrop launced last October. The app is just one of a few already operating in the L.A. area.

SpeedWeed has been delivering medical marijuana since 2012. Feuer told L.A. Weekly that investigations into other apps are ongoing.
