New markets include Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, San Diego and more; new mobile web store available for Apple customers

The technology company behind the first in-App, on-demand medical marijuana service, Nestdrop is expanding throughout the West Coast to new markets in California, Oregon, and Washington. Major cities that will now have Nestdrop’s communication platform include Seattle, Portland and San Francisco, with additional cities like San Diego and more being available to service patients in the near future.

The expansion makes Nestdrop the only marijuana delivery service currently operating across multiple states, reports Sarah Buhr at TechCrunch.

"Well folks, it's been a long few months of teamwork, research, energy & persistence," Nestrop's Facebook page posted on Wednesday. "But we're proud to announce Nestdrop #medicalmarijuana is finally live & ready to deliver smiles in major cities up & down the coast! :-)"

“It’s kind of funny," said Nestdrop cofounder Michael Pycher. "Our competitors probably thought we were dead and that’s what we wanted them to think while we were going about this other option.”

iPhone users can text “smile” to 27126 to have the app sent to their device and Android users can download the app on Google Play.

California: Nestdrop Medical Marijuana Delivery Service Launches GoFundMe Campaign

NestdropForThePeople

To help pay for its upcoming legal battle with the City of Los Angeles, medical marijuana delivery service Nestdrop has launched a GoFundMe campaign to seek donations from medicinal cannabis patients, fellow tech companies, dispensaries and supporters across the country.

After sending a letter to the City Attorney’s office offering to work with them on sensible medical marijuana enforcement -- which went unanswered -- Nestdrop has moved forward with appealing the injunction.

The City Attorney’s injunction has done absolutely nothing to stop medical marijuana deliveries in Los Angeles; a quick search online search will bring up dozens, if not hundreds, of medical marijuana delivery services that are still operating to this day in the city. Nestdrop was targeted simply for being a technology company that received national attention.

Since they are a small tech company, Nestdrop said it doesn't have the budget for a long legal fight and are seeing donations from supporters at http://www.gofundme.com/freenestdrop. Nestdrop has a goal of $70,000 and any funds raised over its final legal bill will be donated to local L.A. causes that tax payer dollars could have gone to instead of this lawsuit.

Nestdrop, which descrinbes itself as "the technology company behind the country’s first in-App, on-demand medical marijuana service," launched the GoFundMe campaign to help raise $70,000 in funds for its legal fight.

A medical marijuana delivery smartphone application based in Los Angeles had aimed at becoming the city's first such service was ordered to stop conducting business by a county judge on Thursday.

Judge Robert O'Brien of the Los Angeles County Superior Court said Nestdrop, a mobile phone app designed to connect legal medical marijuana patients with dispensaries, violated a voter-approved law called Proposition D that bans medical marijuana delivery, reports Time Magazine.

Nestdrop said they weren't violating the law because they only connect dispensaries with patients, and don't handle the cannabis themselves, reports Soumya Karlamangla at the Los Angeles Times.

"We're a technology company," said Nestdrop cofounder Michael Pycher. "We have every right to be an app."

According to Pycher, Nestdrop helps bring more "legitimacy and compliance" with the city's medical marijuana rules, because they can track everything through the app. "We thought this would be making the city happy," he said.

Popular alcohol delivery app expands market reach to bring medicinal marijuana to Los Angeles patients in need

Nestdrop, a popular Los Angeles alcohol delivery service, is introducing what it calls "the country's first in-App, on-demand medical marijuana delivery service for both iOS and Android."

Available today for alcohol deliveries for L.A. area residents, Nestdrop medical marijuana delivery service will launch in the next few weeks in the same app. Medical marijuana patients will be required to upload a photo of their doctor's recommendation to Nestdrop's securely encrypted vault to receive approval before ordering.

Unlike other online medical marijuana delivery services, Nestdrop says it is the first to provide an entirely in-app marketplace experience.

"After our initial success with alcohol deliveries, we decided to expand when we saw how this platform could be used to bring difficult-to-obtain products to people who really need them," said Nestdrop co-founder Michael Pycher. "We began talking to patients and found a genuine need out there for improved access to this medicine."

As part of the simple registration process, medical marijuana patients must upload a photo of a doctor's recommendation and Medical Marijuana Identification Card to order from Nestdrop's medical marijuana section. Once manually approved by a local dispensary, which can take as little as five minutes, patients will have full access to the same medicine that they are used to getting in-person, for the same donation amount.
