THERE IS NOW an app that delivers marijuana directly to people’s doors…

Ease, a new company based in San Francisco, offers its services to those who have approval from a doctor for medical marijuana.

The firm describes its service as something that is “revolutionising medical marijuana delivery”.

To begin their order, customers must register eligibility with either their Medical Marijuana ID or a letter of recommendation from their doctor. After that, customers can choose their desired quantity and strain before placing their order.

Orders take an average of 10 minutes to be delivered (America, eh?) and the service operates between 7am and midnight seven days a week.

On the need for a service of this kind, founder and CEO of Ease Keith McCarty said:

“The process of acquiring medical marijuana can be slow, cumbersome and unpredictable. Often patients have to search multiple dispensaries manually each time they order as stock often varies….

“Eaze’s technology automates all of that so each patient can have a consistent comfortable experience.”

The sale of medical marijuana has been legal in the state of California since 1996. It is often used in connection with epilepsy, cancer, multiple sclerosis and chronic pain. As of 2014, medical marijuana is available in 23 US states.

Medical marijuana products are set to hit Irish pharmacies soon as legislation is close to being signed which would allow Savitex into the Irish market for MS patients.
