Pot Delivery Services Cropping Up Across California
As communities all across California are start to crack down on medical marijuana dispensaries a brand new and shiny company has emerged from the ashes, It is an online based dispensary that will deliver your medical marijuana right to your door step so long as you have a medical marijuana prescription otherwise that would just be out right dealing.
In the picture below a worker in a one room facility wearing her latex gloves pulls out four marvelous green buds from a vacuum sealed bag so that she can weigh them and have them sent on their way. The boss of this fine establishment goes by the name of Matthew Lawrence but we believe that that name is just a front for his online cannabis business.
This week, hundreds of medical marijuana dispensaries in Los Angeles face a deadline to close or risk criminal charges. And hundreds of other cities and towns in California have banned dispensaries altogether. No one's gone as far as Lawrence in trying to build a legal, statewide delivery network. He says his company named c420 has signed up 1,000 patients since April; some are seriously ill; others are what he calls "the suits." "They have families, kids who know parents who know each other. They see each other in the baseball field, and they really don't want to be seen going into a dispensary just because they have migraines, and they like to smoke a little marijuana once in a while in order to alleviate that condition, or whatever the condition might be," Lawrence says.
Worlds largest dispensary offers bonuses
Inside the place billed as the largest medical marijuana dispensary in the world, a cheerful "membership services manager" named Goose Duarte extols the many holistic services. There is a naturopathic primary care doctor, acupuncture, chiropractic care, yoga and Reiki, Japanese spiritual healing defined as "universal life force energy." There are also about 60 safety-tested and potency-labeled California marijuana strains.
The Harborside Health Center opened in October 2006 and now takes care of about 47,000 registered medical marijuana patients at its original Oakland location and a new dispensary in San Jose. It was founded by Steve DeAngelo, a former Hemp products importer, and Dave Wedding Dress, a peace and anti-nuclear activist.
On an average day at Oakland roughly 800 patients will queue up patiently until they get their chance to choose the medical marijuana of their choice. "We've brought the highest standards of both professionalism and activism to the medical cannabis community," DeAngelo says.
Not only is Harborside a center for medical marijuana, but there is a bonus for those who take up the cause. Harborside offers a free gram of medical pot a week for every hour volunteered in support of issues on behalf of medical marijuana patients. This is a deal that im sure 90% of their patients could not refuse.
Santa Clara Dispensary raided again!
For the second time now in 2 weeks a local dispensary in Santa Clara was raided by Narcotics agents who arrested 9 people and seized over 30 pounds of Marijuana. Apparently the dispensary was warned during their first raid to stop selling Marijuana illegally but they continued to stay open to serve their medical patients. It is unclear at this time what proof the Narcotic agents had when raided the dispensary for a second time within 2 weeks other than stating the dispensary was selling in order to make a profit.
