Arizona: ACLU Releases Mobile App To Help Hold Law Enforcement Accountable

MobileJusticeVideoSentToTheACLU[DailyKOS]

Mobile Justice AZ available free starting today through Apple and Google

The American Civil Liberties Union of Arizona on Friday launched Mobile Justice AZ, a free smartphone app that allows Arizonans to record video of law enforcement activity and automatically submit those videos to their local ACLU for review if it appears someone’s rights may have been violated.

The same app is also being launched today in nine other jurisdictions: Minnesota, Georgia, Maryland, New Jersey, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Washington, D.C. The Mobile Justice App is already in use in Michigan, Mississippi, Nebraska, California, Colorado, Missouri, North Carolina and Oregon.

New York has the ACLU’s original app to record police, known as the Stop and Frisk app. In all, residents of 18 states and D.C. now have access to an ACLU mobile app for recording police interactions with the public.

Mobile Justice AZ is available for use on Android and iOS phones and can be downloaded free through Apple’s App Store or Google Play. It enables users to record, witness and report interactions with law enforcement and offers educational information on individual rights.

Videos captured on the Mobile Justice AZ app will be transmitted to the ACLU of Arizona and preserved even if the user’s phone is later seized or destroyed.

U.S.: Where's Weed Launches Marijuana Pre-Ordering Service With New Apps

Where’s Weed, which calls itself "the largest online source for finding legal marijuana businesses," on Friday announced the release of a new online pre-ordering platform through the website and newly launched mobile applications.

With the new platform, customers can quickly and safely pre-order legal marijuana with trusted businesses in their community, according to Where's Weed. Within 60 seconds, customers can select products, upload medical verification and schedule a pick-up at their convenience.

On a small scale beta test across three states, Where’s Weed recorded hundreds of pre-orders in the first 30 days, amounting to tens of thousands of dollars in business to consumer transactions.

A large portion of the pre-orders were gained through Where’s Weed’s recently released app for iPhone, Android, and Windows Devices. Due to Apple’s restrictive policies that many other cannabis businesses have had issues with, the pre-ordering feature is only available on Android and Windows devices.

“Business owners are having huge success with this tool,” said David Lindauer, CEO of Where’s Weed. “Not only are we bringing a whole new set of patients to businesses, we’re actually able to save them quite a bit of time.”

“Patients are loving it too. They get real time updates through email or the app about their order and when it will be ready, and we’ve seen a lot of them scheduling pick-ups and deliveries in advance. It’s all about convenience.”

California: Farm-To-Table Medical Marijuana Mobile Delivery App Launches

The Green Exchange, Inc., the developers of "Loud Cannabis," which the company calls "the world's first online portal and HIPPA compliant mobile app that connects growers to patients," on Tuesday announced the launch of their Patient Delivery Application.

"Loud Cannabis" is a free app that is now available for Android phones. The app uses patented technologies to allow patients to sign up with a farm collective, browse available inventory, purchase products, and arrange for immediate home delivery.

"This new app will empower farmers and give patients a direct connection to the source of their cannabis," said Joshua Artman, founder and CEO of The Green Exchange. "When people buy food, they want to know its origin, freshness and quality. Now this 'farm-to-table' distribution model is available to help farmers connect with more people, and provide patients with fresh cannabis with integrity and transparency."

Unlike other "delivery-service" apps that are hitting the market, Loud Cannabis was developed by farmers - for farmers, as well as for cannabis users who care about quality, according to The Green Exchange.

When a grower adds inventory into the Loud Cannabis app, it is simultaneously loaded into an Integrated Social Media (ISM) push platform, so that consumers can instantly see the latest product offerings via Twitter. This feature helps growers build their brand, increase the value of their products, and drive sales, according to the company.

Cannabis business portal, Ganjapreneur.com, recently released a new version of their mobile app which includes several new features geared toward marijuana industry professionals

For entrepreneurs and investors who are keeping tabs on the nascent cannabis industry, staying informed about the state of the legalization movement is extremely important. To serve this need, Ganjapreneur, a website dedicated to cannabis business news and culture, has recently upgraded their mobile app for Android and Apple devices with several new features and news categories.

The app originally launched in fall 2014, only a few months after the site itself announced its presence on Ganjapreneur.com. Built as a news reader which also contains business listings, job openings, and interviews with prominent business owners and cannabis experts, the Ganjapreneur app's user base grew quickly and, according to the company, it gains an increasing number of users on a daily business.

"In such a volatile market, if you're an investor -- or thinking of investing -- staying informed is critical," said Noel Abbott, Ganjapreneur's CTO. "Our app aggregates relevant news articles and editorials from around the web, and new content is posted throughout the day."

U.S.: Founder of Marijuana Investment Group Interviewed by Ganjapreneur

As public support for the legalization of marijuana has grown, so has the speculation that the cannabis industry could be poised for a major boom if the U.S. federal government changes its policy toward the drug. Like any other emerging market, the cannabis industry has piqued the interest of many venture capital and investment firms around the globe.

Recently, Ganjapreneur, a website dedicated to the growing industry, published an interview with Douglas Leighton, founding partner of Dutchess Capital, an investment group which has recently focused its investments on cannabis start-ups.

In the interview, Leighton discusses how Dutchess Capital came to view the cannabis industry as an opportunity and what led to their eventual decision to invest in several start-ups.

"It took us about 10 months of due diligence before we were comfortable to make the first investment," Leighton said. "We joined ArcView, the angel network for the cannabis industry, in the summer of 2013 and met Isaac Dietrich of MassRoots and subsequently made the first investment." MassRoots is a popular, pseudo-anonymous social network for cannabis users.
