L.A. Scores Legal Victory Over Pot Delivery App
The mobile medical marijuana industry was dealt a severe blow last week when a state appeals court upheld a preliminary injunction against NestDrop, a smartphone app that facilitated medical pot deliveries Los Angeles.
The recent decision by the 2nd District Court of Appeals follows a 2014 lawsuit filed by Los Angeles City Attorney Mike Feuer.
“This ruling is a significant step forward in our effort to stop medical marijuana delivery services,” he said. “Marijuana deliveries violate Prop D and flout the will of the voters who enacted it.”
The three-judge panel agreed with the city’s contention that NestDrop’s delivery services violated the 2013 voter-approved initiative, which restricted marijuana facilities in the city. Operators of the app will now be prohibited from facilitating deliveries of medical marijuana within L.A. and must modify their app immediately, Feuer added.
