SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 17 (UPI) -- A San Francisco startup is using a smartphone app to allow medical marijuana patients to order pot deliveries right to their doors.
Meadow creator David Hua said the app allows medical marijuana patients to upload their prescriptions and California IDs into the system so they can order deliveries from local dispensaries partnering with the startup.
Hua said customers can browse available strains through the app and place an order, which will then be delivered within an hour.
Meadow and its partners are taking care to ensure they are abiding by California's medical marijuana laws in every step of the process, Hua said.
"This is not some get-rich-quick scheme; we're playing the long game on behalf of the medical movement," Hua told TechCrunch. "Our overarching goal is to implement and publicize a lawful marketplace to demonstrate to medical cannabis opponents that patients can obtain access to necessary treatment without endangering public safety or the rule of law."
Hua said Meadow charges partner dispensaries $3 per delivery.
