Pot Delivery App Sued Over Excessive Text Messages
Marijuana delivery giant Eaze Solutions is already in the crosshairs of the state government. Now, it’s facing a lawsuit from a San Diego resident who says the company spammed users with unsolicited text messages in violation of the 1991 Telephone Consumer Protect Act (TCPA).
“The reality is that (Eaze) ‘growth hacked’ its way to the top of the pot delivery business – specifically, by relentlessly bombarding existing and prospective customers with text messages and other digital spam … without anyone’s permission,” the suit alleges. The plaintiff, Farrah Williams, wants up to $2,000 for every unsolicited marketing text the company sent her.
The suit has not yet reach class-action status, but a line of similar lawsuits could destroy the company if they’re found to have merit.
Eaze is a marijuana delivery app currently operating in about 100 California cities. It boasts a customer base of around 300,000, according to the lawsuit.
Eaze says it cannot comment on pending litigation.
